Cincinnati Vs Georgia

Michigan has a top-10 rushing attack, and it comes down to whether that offensive line can get a push up front against Georgia’s top-ranked scoring defense. On the flip side, Michigan needs to generate a consistent pass rush on Stetson Bennett, especially on third downs. Michigan has lost three straight bowl games against SEC schools, but this is a different team playing with a ton of confidence. It won't surprise us if the Wolverines lead at half, but the Bulldogs will make the right adjustments in the second half. Bennett hits Brock Bowers for a pair of TDs, and Georgia holds on with a last-minute stop.



The fourth quarter started with Cincinnati having the ball. Georgia linebacker Azeez Ojulari sacked Desmond Ridder forcing a fumble. Adam Anderson would pick it up for Georgia giving them the ball in Bearcat territory. The Bulldogs would score on a Zamir White touchdown run on the following possession. Cincinnati would punt and a Georgia 32 yard field goal shortened the Bearcat's 21-19 lead. The teams then traded punts. The Bulldogs started burning timeouts and Cincinnati was a first down away from winning. It was third down and two. Ridder threw an incomplete pass giving Georgia one last chance to win. JT Daniels lead Georgia to the Bearcat 36 yard line. Jack Podlesney would then make a 53-yard field goal, tying the Peach Bowl record for longest field goal,

For folks worried about the flaws Alabama exposed in Georgia's defense during the SEC championship game, Michigan simply doesn't profile like Alabama. The Tide rank No. 79 in rushing offense and No. 7 in passing, and they passed all over Georgia for 421 yards. Michigan, however, is built like a lot of teams Georgia has dominated this season. The Wolverines stand No. 10 in rushing offense and No. 67 in passing. That is similar to Arkansas (12, 73), Kentucky (23, 72), Florida (22, 47) and Tennessee (19, 56). Georgia held those four run-first teams to an average of 9.3 points per game. The Bulldogs aren’t exactly going to light up the Wolverines on the other side of the ball, but they will have enough to set up a rematch with Alabama in the national championship game.
