This season has not really panned out the way I expected and defiantly not the way I wanted, but the Dawgs will extend their streak of going to a bowl game to 14. They will be playing Central Florida in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The game will be played on December 31st and will kick off at 3:30p.m.
The Liberty Bowl will feature two dynamic young quarterbacks: Central Florida freshman Jeff Godfrey and Georgia redshirt freshman Aaron Murray. They rank Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, in the nation in passing efficiency among freshmen this season. Also, Central Florida is coached by one time Georgia Tech coach George O’Leary. So that adds another element to the matchup!
Again, I would rather be playing in BCS bowl game, but during that streak of losing 4 straight games, I didn’t think the Dawgs would be eligible for a bowl game at all. So it is a good thing they are playing and getting the extra practice time. Also, it could be the last time we see A.J. Green in a Dawgs jersey, that is worth the price of admission right there!
Oh yeah, to all of those Tech fans who were bashing the Dawgs for going to Shreveport last year, I hope enjoy your trip there! At least Memphis has Graceland, Beale St. and BBQ! All Shreveport is famous for is being Shreveport. Also, since the Yellow Jackets are playing Air Force, the over under on pass attempts in the game is right at 6. How exciting!
