UGA vs. Nebraska: These two teams have seen each other before, the last time being just 365 days ago.

Georgia and Nebraska meet today in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. Kick off is set for noon. The game will be televised by ESPN2.

The Dogs and the Cornhuskers also ended the 2012 season facing each other in a bowl game. That was the 2013 Capital One Bowl, which Georgia won 45-31.

This season has been a disappointment for both teams.

Georgia was coming off an SEC East Division title and was expected to make a run at not only the SEC championship but the BCS national title as well. But too many injuries and an inconsistent defense led to an 8-4 record.

Nebraska also struggled to an 8-4 record.

Both teams will be without their starting quarterbacks.

Georgia’s Aaron Murray suffered a knee injury in a win against Kentucky in late November. Meanwhile Taylor Martinez has not played since late October. He hurt his foot in the team’s third game, then played sparingly in October.
