Texas was not going to the make the playoffs even if they won the Big 12 but they still had a good season overall. They are on their way back but not there just yet.
For the second season in a row the Dawgs have had their season ruined by Alabama. Even though they are not in the playoffs they probably should be.
It wasn’t til writing this that I realized how many close games the Longhorns were in. They beat Oklahoma in their annual rivalry game and that upped the stakes but back to back losses to Oklahoma State and West Virginia relegated them to spoiler status for the title game.
Texas should be able to run the ball better but that is a story for another day. At least they are committed to Sam Ehlinger and he has proven to be pretty good. He has got two more years to get better too which is exciting.
The Texas defense has been up and down this season. Against really good offensive teams they have given up all sorts of points but have been pretty solid when they are taking on more human offenses. Georgia is good but not great I would say so we will see how they do.
It is kind of unfair to be Georgia really. Sure they had a regular season loss but nobody plays Alabama better than Kirby Smart and his guys and now they are not even in the playoff. I am not arguing whether the playoff selection process is just, only that these guys are really good.
It seemed to take a little while but eventually Georgia got their ground game going this season. D’Andre Swift is already over 1000 yards, and a threat on every touch, and Elijah Holyfield likely goes over that mark in this one. Jake Fromm is no slouch either when they need to throw.
The Georgia defense is not as good as it was a year ago. Still they only yield 16ppg and they are certainly no pushovers. They are going to be able to slow down a pretty lame rushing attack of the Longhorns and make it difficult for the quarterback.

Georgia is a pretty hefty favourite in this mathcup of heavyweight programs. That is easy to justify too. They have so few weaknesses.

Even though the Dawgs are stout I think this game is going to be a lot more fun than what we usually see from them. There is essentially little weakness to this team.
Texas is not nearly as complete. They certainly have some athletes that can compete with anyone and Tom Herman is great at getting his teams to respond in underdog roles.
