No. 5 Georgia still recovering from 'toughest loss' as it opens practice for Capital One bowl

Less than two weeks after Georgia finished 5 yards away from a berth in the national championship game, it's still tough for some players to shift their focus to their Capital One Bowl matchup with Nebraska.

The sting from the Bulldogs' 32-28 loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game lingered as bowl practice began Wednesday.

Senior receiver Tavarres King says it was "the toughest loss I've ever been a part of."

Quarterback Aaron Murray says he dreaded watching film of the loss but Georgia still has a lot to play for. He says a top-five finish would make this an "unbelievable" season, but with a loss it becomes "just another season."

Murray, a junior, says he won't study his NFL draft options until after the bowl game.
