The Liberty Bowl features two big name programs who expect to be in New Year’s Day Bowl. Both teams had down years this year, but will still able to get into the Liberty Bowl.
Both teams come into this game coming off a loss in their last game. Both teams would love to get a win to finish off their season on a high note.
The Liberty Bowl takes place in Nashville Tennessee. TCU has about a 10 hour car ride to get to Nashville. The Bulldogs only have a four and a half hour drive from Athens to the Liberty Bowl.
Georgia fans usually travel in packs so expect this game to feel like a Georgia home game.
The Georgia Bulldogs under first year coach Kirby Smart have assembled a 7-5 record so far. A 7-5 record to Georgia fans is very disappointing but with Kirby Smart just coming in, its expected to have a few loses, but 5 is a little too many for most fans.
After sitting at number 9 in the rankings early in the year, the Bulldogs have really fallen off. They have went 3-3 in the last 6 games and barley beat Kentucky in a game that would have been their lowest point of the season.
The Bulldogs count on the ground game for much of their offensive success.
They are led by two excellent backs in Nick Chubb and Sony Michael. The two have combined for over 1700 yards on the ground and 11 touchdowns.
The Bulldogs rank 106 in the nation on offense scoring 24 points a game. On the defensive end they only give up 24.1 points which is good enough for 41st in the nation.
TCU Horned Frogs
After having a couple good teams the last few years the Horned Frogs were a disappointment this year.
They started the season strong but lost 4 of their last 6 to finish the season with a 6-6 record. TCU had some very good wins but also had some very bad loses, like to Texas Tech.
Even with a 6-6 record the Horned Frogs were still able to finish in fifth place in Big 12.
The Horned Frogs are led by junior quarter Kenny Hill. He has 3062 passing yards and 15 touchdowns. He however was also a turnover machine this year, throwing 13 interceptions.
For the Horned Frogs to have any success against Georgia’s tough defense, he is going to have to have a big game, and not have any turnovers.
TCU is ranked 50th in the nation in offense, and 62nd in defense.
