The 2020 Allstate Sugar Bowl will take place in New Orleans on New Year’s Day between the Georgia Bulldogs and Baylor Bears who both just barely fell short of the playoff.
This is the first time these two are playing in 40 years as the last time these two met was all the way back in 1989 where the Georgia Bulldogs beat the Baylor Bears by a score of 15-3.
A mid-season loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks likely finished the Bulldogs hope of making the playoffs, but this team persevered and won 6 straight before falling to LSU last time out. Although the Bulldogs would have considered this season a failure a win in the Allstate Sugar Bowl would certainly help things going into the offseason.
QB Jake Fromm was decent this year getting 2600 passing yards and a very respectable 22-5 TD-INT ratio. Fromm did not really have a favorite target as he spread the ball out among his receivers , but George Pickens had the most receptions with 37 which he turned into over 500 yards and 7 scores.
In terms of the running game this team has one main guy in D’Andre Swift who amassed 1216 yards and 9 scores on the year and he should play into this game here with he Bulldogs listed as a 7.5 point favorite.
The Baylor Bears have had a really great season and outside of two losses to the Sooners they have been perfect. In comparison to the other top nationally ranked teams their schedule is not all that tough, but they did prove they can hang with one of the best teams in the country with those two losses to the Sooners, as they had plenty of opportunity to win both of those games.
The Baylor Bears starting QB situation has been steady all year with Charlie Brewer at the helm, but he has been ruled out of this one with an injury, so it remains to be seen if this Baylor team is good enough to overcome his absence.
John Lovett and JaMycal Hasty have both combined to provide Baylor with a decent rushing attack as they have combined for 1251 rushing yards and 12 TD’s. They will both be hard pressed to have a big game here, though, as the Georgia Bulldog’s front seven is pretty scary to just about any school in the country.

Allstate Sugar Bowl NCAA Football Pick
With Baylor being without their starting QB and the fact they are going up against one of the toughest defenses they have faced all year I am going with the Bulldogs to cover here even though the hook on the 7 does worry me a bit. The Bulldogs should be able to establish the run here with D’Andre Swift and can see Fromm having a decent outing.
