EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State has announced it will play Georgia on New Year's Day in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

No. 19 Michigan State (9-3), under second-year coach Mark Dantonio, has posted back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1989-90.

Georgia (9-3) is ranked No. 16.

The Spartans are headed for their second consecutive bowl game. Michigan State lost to Boston College in last year's Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando.
