NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Georgia vs Texas Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Longhorns went to New Orleans as underdogs and came away with a statement win over the Georgia Bulldogs in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Gerald and Kyle break down how the Texas defense managed to put a stranglehold on the Georgia running game, what Todd Orlando’s scheme did to the Bulldogs, and how Big 12 play prepared the secondary for this matchup.

They also take a look at Sam Ehlinger’s gritty performance against the Bulldogs’ defense and how he stacks up against Texas all-time players. They end the discussion looking at the impact the senior class could have on the future of the program.
