The bowl match ups for the 2013-2014 college football bowl season are beginning to be leaked, and there is one that particularly has some people scratching their heads.
One thing that we like about the bowls is that it gives us some unique match ups. Sometimes, though, we do run into a situation where we get a back-to-back rematch, and it seems as if we’re headed for that in the Gator Bowl.
It’s being reported that the Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl will pit the Georgia Bulldogs of the SEC against the Nebraska Cornhuskers of the Big Ten. This happens to be a rematch of another bowl game in Florida, the Capital One, which the Bulldogs won earlier this January, 45-31.
Now for the fans, something like this is frustrating. We’ve already seen these two lock up, so a new opponent for each would be a bit more exciting, especially seeing as both of these teams are about the same as they were last year, just each without their starting quarterbacks.
But, it’s not just the fans that are upset about this.
Georgia WR Michael Bennett doesn’t seem too happy about this turn of events neither:
Nebraska again? You kidding me?
