Athens -- The Bulldogs arriving in New Orleans Wednesday with their Sugar Bowl showdown with unbeaten Hawaii now just six days away.  

A BCS bowl game looked like a dream for Georgia after they were trounced by Tennessee 35-14 in October.  But six wins, including convincing victories over Florida and Auburn, have vaulted Georgia back into the top five in the nation.  

A win over the Warriors on New Year's Night would give Bulldog seniors 40 wins in their college career, and would also keep Georgia atop the polls not only for the end of this season but also in the preseason next year.  

"I knew this was a special team coming into the season," said Georgia Center Fernando Velasco. "You know, you had some youth at some positions. Some people considered us a young team. But even though we were young, I thought we were talented, and it showed in the latter part of the season. So it would be awesome to finish this game strong, not only for this year's senior class, but for next year's team also. If we get a win in the Sugar Bowl, hopefully they'll be ranked preseason top three."  

Georgia will hold their first practice in New Orleans tonight in the Superdome.  Coaches Mark Richt and June Jones will speak to the media on Thursday.
