TAMPA BAY (WKZO) -- The Michigan State Spartans take on the Georgia Bulldogs in a re-match of the 2009 Capital One Bowl.  The Spartans enter the game 10-3 looking to avoid a 2-game losing streak to end the 2011 season.

On the 1st play of their possession Georgia Quarterback Aaron Murray hit Tavarres King for an 80-yard-touchdown reception.  Georgia leads Michigan State 9-0.
