Georgia Moving on to Belk Bowl Without Leonard Floyd

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Going into the final week of the regular season, the Georgia Bulldogs had hopes of playing for a Southeastern Conference title, maybe even claiming a spot in the four-team national playoff.
Instead, they’ll close the year in a bowl sponsored by a department store.
Talk about a letdown.
No. 13 Georgia (9-3) returned to practice Wednesday to begin preparations for the Dec. 30 Belk Bowl against No. 20 Louisville (9-3).
It’s an intriguing matchup, pitting the high-scoring Bulldogs against their former defensive coordinator (Todd Grantham) in one of just four bowls outside the majors to feature a pair of teams ranked in The Associated Press Top 25.
That said, Georgia was hoping for so much more heading into its last game against Georgia Tech.

Head coach Mark Richt announced that linebacker Leonard Floyd will miss the Belk Bowl after undergoing shoulder surgery on Tuesday. Floyd led the Dawgs in sacks with six.
