No. 4 Florida State (13-0, ACC) vs No. 6 Georgia (12-1, SEC), Dec. 30, 4 p.m. ET

LOCATION: Miami Gardens, Florida

TOP PLAYERS

Georgia: QB Carson Beck, 3,738 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, 72% completion rate.

Florida State: RB Trey Benson, 905 rushing yards, 14 touchdowns, 5.8 yards per carry.

NOTABLE

Georgia: The Bulldogs’ 29-game winning streak was snapped in the SEC championship game, a three-point loss to Alabama that sent a program that had won the last two national championships plummeting five spots in the CFP rankings. The Bulldogs have gone 89-12 in their last 101 games — 1-5 against Alabama, 88-7 against everyone else.

Florida State: The Seminoles lost quarterback Jordan Travis to a broken leg on a run play against North Alabama last month and it cost the team a chance to play for the national championship. The consolation prize: a chance to play for the third perfect season in school history. Florida State went 14-0 in 2013 and 12-0 in 1999, both of those seasons ending with national titles.

LAST TIME

Georgia 26, Florida State 13 in Sugar Bowl. (Jan. 1, 2003).

BOWL HISTORY

Florida State: 11th appearance in the Orange Bowl, 49th bowl game in school history.

Georgia: Fifth appearance in the Orange Bowl, 62nd bowl game in school history.
