Bowl Games Gameday Thread: Monday, December 28th, 2009

We are starting to get in to the bigger school bowl games now and from here on out, it should just get more and more intruiging. The AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl will feature the Georgia Bulldogs vs the Texas A&M Aggies. Georgia finished 2nd in the SEC East with a record of (7-5, 4-4) while Texas A&M finished 5th in the Big 12 South with a record of (6-6, 3-5). The Bulldogs come in to the game heavy favorites while players like Jordan Hugh defensive back for A&M are saying "don't count us out". This will be an interesting matchup between the Big 12 and the SEC. Below, we will take a look at some of the key players for this game, their stats, and other information pertaining to the game itself.
