Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Dawgs passed over for Outback, Chick-fil-A Bowls

Tuesday December 1, 2009

We learned earlier that the Outback Bowl had selected Auburn. Now the Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting that the Chick-fil-A Bowl will pair Tennessee against Virginia Tech.

Is the Music City Bowl the next best option? Georgia might face strong competition from Kentucky where local sources are playing up the Wildcats’ chances.

“I think from all I know and am hearing, Kentucky will be in the Music City Bowl,” said a bowl source Monday.

The bowl’s preferences might have shifted during the course of the day as the Outback and Chick-fil-A Bowls made their moves. Kentucky has traveled well to Nashville, but they’ve been to that bowl after two of the past three seasons. Will fans be as enthusiastic for a third trip to Nashville since 2006?

South Carolina is another remote possibility for the Music City Bowl – a potential North Carolina vs. South Carolina matchup has been mentioned.

If Georgia slides past the Music City Bowl, they’ll be looking at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, or the PapaJohn’s Bowl in Birmingham. Paul thinks Arkansas is a lock for the Liberty, and we won’t argue with that. Shreveport seems most likely in that scenario.
