Storyline: The AutoZone Liberty Bowl will feature the two highest-rated freshman quarterbacks in the FBS, Central Florida’s Jeff Godfrey and Georgia’s Aaron Murray. Godfrey passed for 2,042 yards this fall and ran for 546 yards and nine touchdowns. Murray passed for 2,851 yards and twenty-four touchdowns. Georgia is looking to end a disappointing 6-6 season with a winning record. If the Bulldogs lose to the Knights, they will have their first losing season in 14 years. UCF won the Conference USA title this year and is within reach of a school-record 11 wins should it be able to defeat Georgia. UCF is looking to beat a BCS conference foe and get the Knights’ first bowl win ever. With more conference expansion on the horizon, a big win on the national stage could shine as favorable light on the program. Georgia beat Central Florida 24-23 on September 25, 1999, the only meeting between the two schools.
All-time Series: 1-0 Georgia
Line: Georgia by 6.5
