The University of Georgia scored 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, including a game-winning 53-yard field goal from Jack Podlesny to defeat the University of Cincinnati 24-21 in the Peach Bowl to end the Bearcats’ hopes of a perfect season.

The Bulldogs kicked the field goal to cap off an eight-play, 44-yard drive that started with five consecutive completions from quarterback J.T. Daniels. He threw a 4-yard pass to John FitzPatrick to get Georgia to the Cincinnati 36-yard line before throwing two incomplete passes, which were followed by a field goal.
