Georgia donning black jerseys for the Peach Bowl


#If you’re a fan of alternate jerseys, especially #Georgia’s black tops, then you have some extra incentive to watch the #No. 9 #Bulldogs take on #No. 8 #Cincinnati in the #Chick-Fil-A #Peach #Bowl. The announcement came down on #Wednesday that UGA will be donning the traditional red helmets and silver britches along with the black jerseys they wore in a 31-24 win over #Mississippi #State in #November.

#Cincinnati, an #Under #Armour school, will wear black helmets, red tops and red pants. #Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. ET on ESPN. #Georgia is currently the seven-point favorite per #William #Hill after opening as a 6.5-point favorite.

The #Bulldogs donned the black jerseys in JT #Daniels debut and he responded with an unforgettable showing. #With the ground game and defense struggling, #Daniels connected on 28 of 38 pass attempts for 401 yards and four touchdowns. #He found freshman wideout #Jermaine #Burton eight times for 197 yards and three scores. #George #Pickens caught eight passes for 87 yards and a score while #Kearis #Jackson hauled in four tosses for 55 yards and a touchdown.

#It was the second time that the #Bulldogs had worn the black tops under #Kirby #Smart. The first time was in 2016 against #Louisiana-Lafayette, a game that UGA won 35-21 as #Nick #Chubb and #Isaiah #McKenzie each scored a pair of touchdowns.

#Georgia first used black jerseys against #Auburn in 2007 and the fans pitched in to make it a blackout. The #Bulldogs won 45-20 that night and they used the same tops again against #Hawaii in the #Sugar #Bowl to end the season. #That was a 41-10 UGA win. They were used again the following season for a home night game against #Alabama, one the #Crimson #Tide won by a score of 41-30 after leading 31-0 at the half. There’s some speculation that the #Bulldogs may have used black jerseys during the 1941 season but the black and white nature of the photos makes it tough to discern. These particular black jerseys are different from the others with a spiked dog collar around the neck.
