More than likely, the Allstate Sugar Bowl will come down to the wire if Texas football does a few things right against the Georgia Bulldogs.
With the Allstate Sugar Bowl looming in just a few days for the rising Texas football program, the focus has to be on pulling off the big upset against the Georgia Bulldogs. The postseason went by so fast thus far that it almost doesn’t seem like Christmas has already come and gone. And, more than half of the postseason slate has already concluded, if you include all the Group of Five Bowl games.
However, Texas football needs to keep the momentum rolling from what the Big 12 did in the first two bowl games it had so far. Although it didn’t come in pretty fashion, the TCU Horned Frogs were able to knock off the Cal Golden Bears in the Cheez-It Bowl. Then, the Baylor Bears took down the Vanderbilt Commodores in an offensive showdown on Dec. 27 in the Texas Bowl. Baylor took part in the same bowl game that Texas football knocked off the Mizzou Tigers in last year.
Even with some recent news that dropped that will be detrimental to the chances that the Dawgs have of winning the Sugar Bowl, the line still sits in its favor by a 13-point margin. The over/under for this game is still set at 58 total points. This New Years Day showdown could get quite interesting if the betting line stays that far apart up until kick-off.
This would be one of the few times under head Texas football coach Tom Herman that this team would lose by a significant margin like that when it enters as such a considerable underdog.
