Georgia to face Nebraska in 2014 Gator Bowl
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Action Sports 360 has learned that the 2014 Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl match up will be Georgia against Nebraska.
The game will be played at EverBank Field on January 1st.
This will be a rematch of the 2013 Capital One Bowl when the Bulldogs beat the Cornhuskers 45-31 in Orlando.
The match up between Big Ten and SEC programs was not the ideal choice for everyone involved, especially the fans. Many pundits had predicted Georgia would play Michigan instead, but the Buffalo Wild Wings bowl picked Michigan before the Gator Bowl had their choice.
The Bulldogs famously played in the Gator Bowl in 1989 – it was Vince Dooley’s final game as Georgia head coach.
Nebraska recently played here in Jacksonville, beating Clemson in the 2009 Gator Bowl.
