The Georgia Bulldogs are looking to prove a point against the upstart Texas football program, but it won’t be easy in the Sugar Bowl.
Some teams matchup better than others when preparing for a team as talented and difficult to upend as the Georgia Bulldogs. The Allstate Sugar Bowl is going to be a true test of how well Texas football can rise to the occasion against a top team in the nation. Georgia was the first team on the outside looking in for the College Football Playoff field.
In these circumstances, against this good of competition, couldn’t get much more difficult for Texas football. Really the only hope of just getting an easy pass out of the gates involves the unlikely occurrence that Georgia is caught with its focus away from the Sugar Bowl after it was left on the outside of the Playoff field. That’s not a likely outcome in this game, so Texas football needs to be ready to come out firing against one of its strongest opponents of the season.
However, Texas football did have a difficult slate to work through in 2018, so it should be of the right mind to take on the Dawgs. Watching film on a team of that caliber, and facing them on the national stage in a New Years Six Bowl game. Not to mention, Georgia and Texas football square off in the final New Years Six Bowl before the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
Here’s a look at the five definitive reasons why the Texas Longhorns will take down the Georgia Bulldogs in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 at 7:45 p.m. CT at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.
