The Yellow Jackets’ last victory over the Bulldogs was back in 2016. Georgia Tech has only defeated Georgia four times since 2000,
What’s on the line? A win would give Georgia its third straight undefeated regular season. Before the current stretch, UGA only have four perfect seasons. The seniors would also match last year’s class for a program record 49 wins.
For Tech, it would be another step in building a program in the first full season under Key. The Jackets are above .500 and will play in a bowl game for the first time since 2018.
Both sides will be playing for the Governor’s Cup. The winning seniors get a personalized engraved replica of the statue while those on the losing team get commemorative watches.
