Georgia vs. Ohio State: Position-by-position comparison

The Georgia Bulldogs will play the Ohio State Buckeyes on Dec. 31 at 8:00 p.m. from the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia.

The winner will advance to the national championship where it will play the winner of the Michigan-TCU semifinal.

Georgia, coming off its first SEC Championship win since 2017, opened as a -6.5 point favorite over the Buckeyes, per BetMGM. The over/under is set at 60.5.

UGA fans may not have had many opportunities to watch Ohio State play this season,

which is why Phil Harrison of Buckeyes Wire and myself provided a breakdown of how the two teams compare from a position-by-position standpoint.
