Bulldogs to Make Third Appearance in the Outback Bowl
Tampa, Fla. -- The Georgia Bulldogs (10-2) won their third consecutive bowl game, holding off a late Wisconsin rally to defeat the Badgers 24-21 in front of 62,414 Outback Bowl fans at Raymond James Stadium and an ESPN national television audience.
It was the last game for several Bulldog seniors, including All-American DE David Pollack whose three-sack performance earned him Outback Bowl MVP.
Overall, Georgia's defense stifled the Badgers' offense, allowing just 13 points while recording seven quarterback sacks and forcing and recovering two fumbles.
Wisconsin (9-3) took an early second-quarter 6-3 lead in a battle of field goals, but Georgia's offense came to life in the middle of the game. Senior QB David Greene connected on a 24-yard touchdown with senior Fred Gibson and later a 24-yard TD to senior Jeremy Thomas, who made a great catch off a deflection.
Freshman Thomas Brown notched his fourth 100-yard rushing game of the year with 111 yards on 16 carries, including a 29-yard touchdown run to give Georgia a 24-6 lead.
Wisconsin rallied late with one offensive and one defensive touchdown, but the Bulldogs prevailed in the end.
