The No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs take on the undefeated No. 5 Florida State Seminoles in the Orange Bowl on Saturday, December 30. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. ET from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

Georgia enters as a whopping 21.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Seminoles will start their third-string quarterback, Brock Glenn, after backup Tate Rodemaker announced his intention to enter the transfer portal. The Bulldogs fell to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, and the ‘Noles won the ACC, prompting a great deal of controversy regarding their exclusion from the College Football Playoff.

Georgia’s star tight end Brock Bowers has opted out as he prepares for the NFL Draft, and a huge chunk of Florida State’s roster has also chosen to sit this game out, including wide receiver Keon Coleman and running back Trey Benson.

Here is the Big Ten referee crew that has been assembled for the Sugar Bowl:

Referee: Greg Blum

Line Judge: Sergio DeHoyos
Field Judge: Lamont Simpson
Side Judge: Joel Clay
Back Judge: Dennis Morris
