Georgia is set to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in the Liberty Bowl, so here are some storylines and predictions for the Bulldogs ahead of the game.


It was a struggle of a first year for Kirby Smart as the head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, resulting in a 7-5 record that won’t have too many fans in Athens happy. The good news? Running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel have decided to return and quarterback Jacob Eason will have a year of experience under his belt heading into 2017.

Here are five thoughts and predictions as the Bulldogs take on the TCU Horned Frogs on December 30.

Rushing Power

Both Chubb and Michel missed time this season, but with both being healthy and able to play, the Dawgs are set at the running back position and should be able to control the ball on the ground against a TCU defense that allowed 182.75 rushing yards per game.

No Freshman

Quarterback Jacob Eason had an up-and-down season as a true freshman, but he is only a freshman in status now after a season of being the man under center. Expect to see a more consistent Eason.

Stopping Hill

TCU quarterback Kenny Hill is a talent, and after suffering an injury late in the season, is back to full health. Stopping him from going off (he passed for more than 400 yards in three games this season) will be key for the Dawgs.

Smart First Bowl

Being a head coach for the first time has a lot of challenges, including getting a team prepared and pumped up for a bowl game. How the Dawgs come out and play will have to do a lot with how Smart has coached them the past month.

The Beginning Of A Legend

Georgia fans love kicker Rodrigo Blankenship. If he has a big game, expect the people in Athens to start erecting a statue for him.
