The Rutgers Scarlet Knights could also have a late-season kicking controversy on their hands.

With the Capital One Bowl at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando just under a week away, the Georgia Bulldogs recently found out they'll be without their big man on the defensive line. Senior nose tackle John Jenkins will be out because of academic issues, according to Seth Emerson.

The two-year starter for Georgia is projected to be a first-round draft pick next April according to CBS Sports. Jenkins ended the season with 50 tackles, including two for a loss. The Bulldogs take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers on New Year's Day in the Capital One Bowl.

A few days before at the very same field, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights will be facing the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Despite being in the postseason, the Scarlet Knights are all of a sudden dealing with an issue at kicker.

Nick Borgese has started the last seven games at the position after Kyle Federico played the first five. Head coach Kyle Flodd may not decide who to start until the opening kick off. Borgese is dealing with a back injury that could make Federico the starter. Federico fell behind Borgese because of an injury of his own; a hip injury he sustained against Connecticut.
