The Georgia Bulldogs are set to play in the 2010 AutoZone Liberty Bowl, UGASports.com has reported. Georgia will face the winner of the Conference USA Championship game between SMU and UCF.
The Liberty Bowl pits Conference USA against the SEC and will be televised by ESPN at 3:30 p.m. on December 31, 2010. A formal invitation can’t be made until after the SEC Championship game.
Georgia has played both SMU and UCF one time. In the 1966 Cotton Bowl, Georgia defeated the SMU Mustangs 24-9. And in 1999, the Dawgs beat the UCF Knights 24-23 in Athens.
This will be the third trip to the Liberty Bowl for the Bulldogs. They lost to NC State 14-7 in 1967 and beat Arkansas 20-17 in 1987.
