This will be prison rape... I will enjoy every second of watching Nebraska get it's teeth get kicked in and it will be glorious... there is literally not one team in college football that I hate more than Nebraska.  I hope Georgia runs up the score.

So if a Nebraska fan and a Georgia fan have a baby, it comes out an LSU fan?

If 7-5 Wisky could put up 70 on this sorry NU group, UGA could legitimately put up an even bigger bona fide basketball score on them.

This one's a laugher... UGA by at least 4 TD's, 48-20.

This is cool, I can actually apply what I'm studying for a final to bowl predictions.

Changes in status result from changes in testosterone (T).
T levels rise before a big competition, and the winners will continue to show a rise for up to two hours.
The losers' T, however, tends to drop.

Increased T will encourage and prepare the winners for future competition; decreased T may temporarily discourage them from future competition.

I realize strength of opponent and whatnot may play a role, but let's take a look back at 2010. Not a pretty year for Georgia. They lost to UCF in the Liberty Bowl which gave them a season record below .500
Georgia's losses included rivals South Carolina, Florida, and Auburn - a major blow to pride. Although they defeated GT, it was by one score (and worth noting that GT was driving to score at the end of the game until UGA intercepted). Needless to say, jimmies were rustled.
Meanwhile, their opponent for the bowl, UCF, had a three game win streak entering the bowl game, including the C-USA championship, their first conference title. UCF was riding on a lot of energy into the game.

Then next year, UGA improved, only losing to rival USCe, and made it to the SEC title. Where LSU crushed them. They lost to Michigan State in the bowl game that year as well, although in a closer game in OT.
Michigan State went to the Big 10 title game with a 4-game winning streak in their pocket, only to lose... but by three points. They were down, but probably not as much as Georgia.

This year, Georgia was riding a win streak into the SECCG. They lost, but in a very good and close game. Nebraska, meanwhile, was killed in the Big Ten title game ala Orange-Bowl-2011-Clemson.

Both teams lost, but Nebraska is feeling way more pain than UGA. The Bulldogs should be fine.

Fun fact: Mark Richt is originally from Omaha. He grew up a Huskers fan. Has family that still lives in Nebraska and are big Huskers fans, but big Dawg fans too. He say they call themselves the "Corn Dawgs."

Now tell me that ain't some funny shit.

WTH

TL;DR - testosterone may play a role in facing competition. Winners may have it "carry over" and help them prepare for future competition.
Losers' testosterone may drop after a loss, which discourages them from competition.


Following a loss, a team may struggle to beat their next opponent. Winners, however, are more pumped up.

Ex: Georgia lost to South Carolina this year 35-7. The next week, they beat Kentucky by only five points.
Ex: South Carolina loses to LSU and gets demolished in the Swamp.
Ex: Mizzou - loses to UGA, beats ASU by 4. Loses to South Carolina, beats UCF by only 5.

Third variables (things to be considered that may also play a role) include injury to key players and strength of opponent.

Eh, I'm studying for an exam today, I was trying to apply stuff I was learning in evolutionary psychology.

That's probably how they felt watching you all season, and they probably feel the same about your bowl ga......oh wait.
