TCU vs. Georgia preview:

TCU has been up and down all year, and looked terrible in its game against Oklahoma State, losing 31-6. The Horned Frogs came back from that loss to demolish Texas by a score of 31-9, but then went on to lose their next game against Kansas State by a score of 30-6. At 6-6, TCU's season did not go as planned, but the Horned Frogs get a Georgia team that is just as confused to what happened to its season as the Horned Frogs.

Georgia’s season has ebbed-and-flowed with the success of freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. The former five-star player has had some success as starter, and has shown off the talent that made him a prized recruit, but his 6.61 yards per attempt number is extremely pedestrian. On paper, the Dawgs have a dynamic backfield combination of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, but neither has exploded this year.

The Horned Frogs and Bulldogs have played three times in history, with Georgia winning all three contests. The last game between these two programs was played in 1988.

TCU vs. Georgia prediction:

Neither team had a very successful season. After struggling to get going this season Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will explode in this one against a suspect TCU run defense.

Georgia 37, TCU 27
