Georgia vs. Florida State: Orange Bowl open thread

The traditional power college football bowl games begin in Miami. Follow and discuss the game here with us!

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Oklahoma vs Clemson Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Today, the #5 Florida State Seminoles (13-0) face the #6 Georgia Bulldogs (12-1) in the Capital One Orange Bowl. This may be the Orange Bowl, but it easily could be named the Consolation Bowl or even the Disappointment Bowl for these two schools. Going into Championship Saturday in the beginning of this month, both teams felt certain they would be playing each other not in the Orange Bowl, but in the Sugar Bowl, as part of the College Football Playoff, but a Georgia loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship followed by a Florida St. win in the ACC Championship coupled with FSU’s snub by the playoff committee leads us here today. On the surface, neither team has much to play for, but these teams may be determined to prove they belonged in the playoff over the teams that will lose their semifinal games on New Year’s Day. This game could be a classic!
