Georgia will be without two defensive backs in the Gator Bowl against Nebraska, announcing bowl-game suspensions for Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson on Monday night.

According to the school, both sophomores will miss the game due to "violation of team regulations." There was no further information provided as to the nature of the violations.

Harvey-Clemons, a starting safety and key piece of the Bulldogs' defense, already missed the season-opener against Clemson after an off-field incident over the summer. He finished the regular season third on the team in tackles (66) with 5.5 tackles for loss, one interception and three recovered fumbles.

Dawson has 13 tackles on the year, mostly as a reserve or as the fifth defensive back in nickel packages.

Georgia and Nebraska are meeting for the second straight year in the postseason, with the Bulldogs picking up a 45-31 win in last year's Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1. For more details on this year's matchup, including the quarterback situation for both teams, check out the Gator Bowl Preview.
