Georgia defenders no longer strangers as they strut into NFL
Altogether, there are a combine-high 14 Georgia players at the league's annual gathering of top college players.

Johnson's consolation for missing out on a national title is a likely top-20 selection in the NFL draft on April 28. “You carry yourself different when you're a winner.”Don't the Alabama players know that. “I’ve got a lot of respect for those guys,” Alabama defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis said of the Bulldogs at the Senior Bowl.wftv.com
Alabama to meet Notre Dame in relocated CFP semifinal game
4 Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff semifinal originally scheduled to serve as the 107th Rose Bowl. It's still unclear whether the game in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium will be called the Rose Bowl, but the decision ended a streak of 78 straight years in Pasadena for a bowl game first played in 1902. The festive week of genteel celebrations around the Rose Bowl game already had been mostly canceled, interrupting a beloved annual holiday tradition for hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles-area residents and tens of thousands of visiting fans. Alabama's first bowl game was the 1926 Rose Bowl, and the Tide played in six early editions of the game. They haven't been back in the official Rose Bowl game since 1946, although they beat Texas on Jan. 7, 2010, in the BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl stadium.
