Georgia Bulldogs wreck Georgia Tech

By Justin Gray

It’s rivalry week in College Football, and the Bulldogs took on Georgia Tech in the Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate rivalry game. In the rivalry, Georgia has a 70-39-5 record in the series. It's never been much of a rivalry. In the last five meetings, the Dawgs have won by a total margin of 217-49.

This year, it was in Athens for the first time since 2018, and the Dawgs didn’t disappoint the fans. It started in an unusual way for the Dawg defense, giving up a touchdown on Georgia Tech’s opening drive, the first, first quarter touchdown given up by the Dawgs all year. The teams proceeded to exchange punts before the Dawgs put together a drive and had to settle for a field goal. The defense forced a punt and the offense responded with a six play, 80 yard drive and a Stetson Bennett touchdown pass to WR Marcus Rosemary-Jacksaint to take a 10-7 lead. This surprisingly was the score at half.

The Dawgs got the ball after the half and picked up a field goal. The defense came up huge on the next drive forcing a turnover on downs, and the offense took over at the Yellow Jacket 17 yard-line. It took seven plays for the Dawg offense to get into the endzone on a pass from Bennett to Brock Bowers to extend the lead to 20-7. The Dawg defense continued their dominance forcing a fumble on the next play that would lead to another field goal by Jack Podlesny. After a Yellow Jacket punt, the Dawgs would get rolling behind the legs and hands of Kenny McIntosh and go up 30-7. The Dawgs forced another turnover on downs and, once again, they turned into UGA points. Kendall Milton ran it 44 yards to the endzone for the touchdown. Georgia Tech soon picked up a garbage time touchdown, and the final was 37-14.

The Dawgs finished the regular season with a 12-0 record and they remain the number one team in the country. Next week they play SEC West Champs LSU (9-3) in the SEC Championship, regardless of the outcome in this game, the Dawgs should be a lock for the College Football Playoff. The SEC Championship will be held in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta at 4:00 P.M.
