Bowl Games 2000

Georgia and Georgia Tech spent the first day of the new century and millennium playing bowl games in Florida. In Tampa, the Bulldogs played Purdue in the Outback Bowl. In the first half, Purdue jumped to a 25-0 lead, but the Bulldogs came back to score 28 unanswered points, winning 28-25 in overtime. Across state at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Tech took on Miami. Unfortunately for Tech, there was no miracle comeback, with Miami winning 28-13.
