Georgia and Cincinnati are set to face off in the Peach Bowl. The Dawgs and Bearcats come into this game both ranked inside the Top 10 and offer one of the more intriguing NY6 matchups this bowl season.
The Bearcats, of course, are an undefeated squad to this point. They ran roughshod through the American and probably deserved a better ranking than ninth to end the regular season. They possess one of the best defenses in the entire country in lots of categories, having roughed up many of their adversaries this year. They are led on offense by the great Desmond Ridder, who has torched teams with his arm and his legs this year.
Georgia had a bit of a rough go to start the season. But recently, the Dawgs have had a surge on offense. JT Daniels has been positively ‘it’ for UGA on offense, blazing teams with efficient quarterback play. It’s a wonder where they’d be with Daniels the entire year given UGA’s issues under center prior to him assuming the role. While James Cook will be absent this game, Zamir White will pack a serious punch in the backfield. Lest we forget, Georgia also has one of the most dominant defenses in the country, as well.
This will be a fascinating matchup on both sides of the ball, quite frankly. If both teams are motivated and play up to par, then we could have a dandy to start off an action-packed day of college football. Hell, let’s hope they ring in 2021 the right way, shall we?
