Tonight UGA gets to bounce back from a disappointing season in the Chick-fil-A Bowl (formally and endearingly the Peach Bowl). We took the kids to the Georgia Aquarium yesterday, and it was packed; filled to the brim with Virginia Tech. I would say the Hokie gear out numbered Dawgs gear by an astounding 5:1 ratio, and that may be an understatement. While this may more or less be a home game for the Dawgs, do not expect a totally partisan crowd.
VA Tech is favored by 2.5 points, which led my eight-year old to ask “How can they win by 2.5 points? That is impossible!” I did not get into the betting thing with him. Everyone is expecting a low scoring game in this one, but I think that is way off the mark; expect a high scoring game, with one of the teams starting to pull away late in the third quarter. I really think that Georgia has bounced back from the ups and downs of this season, so I am going with the homer prediction of 33-17.
