UGA, Nebraska on wrong side of the turnover battle

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Turnovers tip the balance of many a football game but it might not matter in the Gator Bowl. Somehow, Georgia and Nebraska each managed to win eight games with dismal turnover margins.

The Bulldogs are minus-six in turnover margin, 13th in the SEC and tied for 97th in the nation. Nebraska is even worse — the Huskers are minus-12, tied for 119th in the nation.

The problem isn’t so much giving the ball away a lot as it is forcing turnovers. Nebraska has come up with only three fumble recoveries this season in the run-oriented Big Ten, and has 16 turnovers.

Georgia has only six interceptions in the pass-happy SEC and has 14 turnovers gained.
