Georgia: Bulldogs fans will remember the 2012 SEC Championship as the one that got away. Instead of playing Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game, the 32-28 heartbreaking loss to Alabama relegates the Bulldogs to the Capital One while their SEC East rival Florida, who Georgia beat, plays in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Georgia looks to take its frustration out on the Huskers and get redemption.   

Nebraska: Nebraska is 91st in the nation in passing yards, but 8th in the nation in rushing yards. The defense has been middle-of-the-pack, allowing 26.2 yards per game. Nebraska needs a signature win desperately after being massacred by Wisconsin 70-31 in the Big Ten Championship and losing the Capital One Bowl last year to South Carolina 30-13.
