ATHENS, Ga. After a disappointing season, Georgia is going to the Independence Bowl to face Texas A&M.
The Bulldogs (7-5) head into the Dec. 28 game in Shreveport, La., with their most losses in Mark Richt's nine seasons as coach and having fired three defensive assistants. But they are coming off an upset of Atlantic Coast Conference champion Georgia Tech.
The game will be televised by ESPN. Kickoff is slated for 5 p.m.
Georgia will be making its second trip to the Independence Bowl, the last coming in 1991. The Bulldogs haven't faced Texas A&M since a 42-0 victory in 1980 on the way to the national championship.
The Aggies (6-6) received an invitation despite finishing fifth in the Big 12 South.
