The Bulldogs missed out on the College Football Playoff, but they’ll be competing against the Baylor Bears later today in the Sugar Bowl.
A few weeks ago, Georgia suffered a blowout loss to the LSU Tigers in the SEC championship game, where they lost to LSU 37-10.
In that game, Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm had a rough game, as he completed 20-of-42 passes and threw two interceptions. If Fromm bounces back from that performance, the Bulldogs may have a chance.
The Bulldogs have their share of injuries/players that won’t be available in this game, as Ben Cleveland will be out due to issues with academics. Wide receiver Lawrence Cager is out for this game with an ankle injury. The Bulldogs will be without another receiver as Dominick Blaylock tore his ACL in their last game. Georgia is missing these players (and more) as they prepare for this Sugar Bowl matchup.
This year’s Sugar Bowl marks the Bulldogs’ second straight, as they lost to the Texas Longhorns 28-21. The Bulldogs have a chance to redeem themselves this year as they face the Baylor Bears.
The Bears lost to the Oklahoma Sooners in the Big 12 championship game and find themselves in the Sugar Bowl alongside the Georgia Bulldogs.
In the championship game, the Bears lost their quarterback Charlie Brewer. He left the game with a concussion, and his status for this game was up in the air. However, Brewer is said to be ready to go, which is huge for the Bears. This was the biggest storyline for the Bears going into this game, and as Brewer is expected the play, the Bears can breathe a sigh of relief.

The Sugar Bowl should be a good one. These two teams have identical records, the Bears have improved drastically from two years ago (where they went 1-11), and Charlie Brewer is playing. The Bulldogs are a bit banged up, which could affect their chances in this game, especially if Fromm has another rough game. So, I think the Bears may get the win.
