ATHENS, Ga. -- With just a few days left until No. 7 Georgia (11-2) inaugurates the new year with a Capital One Bowl matchup against No. 16 Nebraska (10-3), don’t just assume the Bulldogs will enjoy a Jan. 1 cakewalk despite entering as 10-point favorites.

Yes, Nebraska is coming off a humiliating 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game, but the Cornhuskers have developed a reputation as a bounce-back club under coach Bo Pelini. They have lost five games by 25 points or more under Pelini, but they’re 4-1 in the next game after those big losses.

In other words, Georgia can’t afford to produce a flat effort against a Nebraska team that is fully capable of exploiting the Bulldogs’ shortcomings in defending the run -- or else it could be an unhappy new year for those in red and black.
