Georgia Presents Challenge For Huskers In Capital One Bowl

By  | 

Nebraska and Georgia don't kick off the Capital One Bowl until 22 days from now - but over the course of the season, the Bulldogs have put up some impressive numbers. Georgia ranks in the top 20 of two categories. Georgia scores 37.2 points per game, which ranks 18th nationally.

Aaron Murray is one of the nation’s prolific passers, throwing for 3,466 yards this season and 31 touchdowns. Georgia started the season 5-0 before losing to South Carolina on the road. The Bulldogs reeled off six straight victories before losing 32-28 to Alabama in the SEC Championship game on December 1.

"When you know what you’re doing and you block the right guy and everyone is doing what they're supposed to and the quarterback understands his progression and hits the right target, a lot of good things are going to happen for you," Georgia head coach Mark Richt said.

Georgia had five different running backs combine for 31 rushing touchdowns

"There's not enough words to say about our skill between our running backs and receivers. Anyone can be the star - our running backs, which they have been all year, or you don't know which receiver is going to have a big day," quarterback Aaron Murray said.

Nebraska and Georgia square off in the Capital One Bowl, January 1 in Orlando. The game will be seen on ABC beginning at 12 p.m.
