Georgia, Nebraska each seek motivational edge in Capital One Bowl
ORLANDO, Fla. — Crazy things tend to happen in bowl games and they are notoriously hard to predict. But generally if you can identify the most motivated team you will have identified the eventual winner.
But good luck trying to do that with Georgia and Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl.
The No. 7-ranked Bulldogs (11-2) are coming off a devastating SEC Championship loss in which they literally finished five yards short of a BCS championship berth. On the same day hundreds of miles away in Indianapolis, the Cornhuskers (10-3) suffered arguably their most humiliating defeat in the history of the program. They gave up 539 yards rushing in falling to Wisconsin 70-31 in the Big Ten Conference championship.
With Georgia locked out of a BCS bowl opportunity and Nebraska embarrassed in its last game, it could be argued that neither team is very motivated to be in the land of Disney with no real stakes for which to play. Then again, the opposite could be true.
