2014 Clemson vs Georgia
August 28, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
Separated by just 80 miles along Interstate 75, Georgia’s backyard brawl with budding rival Clemson opens the season for both teams for the second consecutive year, this time between the hedges in Athens.
A nationally-televised duel featuring a pair of Top 15 teams, this SEC-ACC matchup provides early-season league bragging rights to the victor and will certainly come into play when the College Football Playoff selection committee peeks at non-conference schedules when determining the four best teams in the country at season’s end.
New quarterbacks for both squads may have early jitters, but the violent first meeting between Georgia tailback Todd Gurley and Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley during the Bulldogs’ first possession is worth the price of admission.
