The 2005 edition to the Outback Bowl featured the Georgia Bulldogs, and the Wisconsin Badgers. Both teams came into the game ranked and with only 2 losses.

Brandon Cotou provided the first scoring of the game, as Georgia got on the board first with a 20 yard field goal. Later in the first quarter, kicker Mike Allen got Wisconsin on the board with a 46 yard field goal, to tie the game at 3. In the second quarter, Allen connected on a 44 yard field goal, to give Wisconsin a 6-3 lead. Quarterback David Greene connected with wide receiver Fred Gibson for a 19 yard touchdown pass, to give Georgia a 10-6 halftime lead.

In the third quarter, Greene found Jeremy Thomas for a 24 yard touchdown to extend the lead to 17-6. Running back Thomas Brown rushed 29 yards for a touchdown, to increase Georgia's lead to 24-6, at the end of the third quarter. Quarterback John Stocco found wide receiver Darrin Charles for a 19 yard touchdown pass to trim the lead to 24-13.

With Georgia trying to run out the clock, David Greene threw an interception, that was returned by Andy Crooks for 11 yards for a Wisconsin touchdown. The ensuing 2 point conversion succeeded, and Wisconsin now trailed 24-21. The onside kick attempt failed, but there was still time left. Georgia eventually converted a fourth and 1 on Wisconsin's 15 yard line to seal the game.
