It’s nail bitin’ time.
For fans of the Georgia Bulldogs and Boise State, the days leading up to the Sept. 3 showdown in Hotlanta — right dab in the middle of Bulldog territory — can’t come fast enough.
Let the nightmares begin.
For the blue team, a win could put them in the hunt for a national championship and the rights to victory against the Dawgs will help secure and affirm their No. 5 Associated Press ranking. They're returning eight starters on offense and the same number on defense, a Heisman trophy contender and a coach who is riding high.
For the red and black, it’s all about defending the dominance of the Southeastern Conference, securing the affirmation of a national press that's been downright mean at times and keeping their head coach, a guy most people seem to get along with just fine when he's winning. Breaking into the Top 25 again would also be a perk.
Hang on as we tackle the game that promises to be a season breaker for both teams, win or lose.
