2017 TaxSlayer Bowl Preview
The Penn State Nittany Lions will meet the Georgia Bulldogs in the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl. The Georgia Bulldogs had another solid season, and will be looking for their 10th win of the season. The Bulldogs defense is one of the best in the country, allowing under 17 points per game. Georgia running back Sony Michel is the latest in the long list of great Bulldog running backs, and will be one of the players to watch at the TaxSlayer Bowl. Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg has had a disappointing senior year, but the talented signal caller will look to go out with a strong performance versus a good Georgia defense. The 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl will feature two heavyweight programs, and should be one of the better games of bowl season.
