It was a disappointing finish for fans of Georgia and Baylor. Both teams had strong starts, but losses in their respective conference championship games had both on the outside looking in when it came to making the College Football Playoffs.  

The bright side for both programs is that they have a prime bowl game to look forward to, the Sugar Bowl. The Bulldogs and Bears have met four times before with Georgia winning all previous matchups, something Baylor All-American defensive lineman James Lynch will try to change. Opposing him will be Georgia QB Jake Fromm in what could be his final college football game should he elect to head to the NFL this spring. 

Georgia will be looking to avenge its loss to Baylor's Big-12 rival Texas in last year's Sugar Bowl, while the Bears are looking to win a second Sugar Bowl, having beaten Tennessee in 1957.  

The Sugar Bowl kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at 5:45 p.m. PT (8:45 p.m. ET/ 7:45 p.m. CT) from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and will be broadcast on ESPN
