How the NCAA is punishing Georgia Southern football for winning the Pac-12 title

Georgia Southern Football is in danger of losing its ACC title game status if it fails to beat Florida State in the Big 12 championship game.

The Bulldogs are currently playing at the Orange Bowl on Sunday, and they’re scheduled to play at Arizona State on Feb. 13.

The Associated Press first reported that Georgia Southern was being punished for the loss of its ACC crown to the Seminoles in 2017.

That punishment was handed down in April 2017 by the NCAA and the NCAA Committee on Infractions, which is comprised of four members, including former Alabama athletic director Jeremy Foley.

Georgia Southern has until June 30 to appeal the punishment, which could put the Bulldogs on the hook for a significant portion of its 2017 bowl game revenue.

Georgia Southern will play at Virginia Tech on Feb 1 and finish the year at Utah on Feb 16.
