2012 bowl projections: Michigan could face Georgia in Capital One Bowl

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan has struggled against quality opponents so far this season, but it could find itself facing BCS title game hopeful Georgia in the Capital One Bowl this season.

While the Michigan Wolverines are coming off a disappointing loss last week, they may still find themselves playing BCS title game hopeful Georgia Bulldogs in the Capital One Bowl this season, as SB Nation's Jason Kirk writes. It's not a bad landing spot for a team that beat just one team with a winning record this season.

Michigan may be 8-4 this year with a solid 6-2 record against Big Ten opponents, but the Wolverines actually went just 1-4 against winning teams this season. Other than a narrow overtime victory over the 9-3 Northwestern Wildcats, each of Michigan's wins came against an opponent with a final 2012 record of 6-6 or worse.

Considering that, it's a tad wild to think that Michigan could eventually play in a bowl game against a team that's still vying to appear in the BCS National Championship Game. Georgia (11-1) still needs to complete its toughest test yet, the SEC Championship Game against the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, but the path to the national title game exists.
