Georgia and Michigan are gearing up to play in the Orange Bowl in Miami on Friday, December 31.
Both teams play a very similar style of football, so we should be in store for a great, physical football game with so much on the line.
Offensively, both teams look to run the ball and utilize the play action to impose their will on the defense. On the other side of the ball, it’s all about strength and speed, with Georgia and Michigan having great years defensively.
Now that the teams have arrived in Miami, here’s a look at how the Bulldogs and Wolverines stack up statistically ahead of their College Football Playoff game on Friday.
