Georgia vs Georgia Tech: Statistical breakdown

·5 min read

Georgia is gearing up to take on Georgia Tech in Atlanta this weekend for the regular season finale. The Bulldogs are looking to complete a perfect 12-0 record with a win over their in-state rival.

Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate is the name given to this rivalry, though it’s not been much of a rivalry since the turn of the century with Georgia winning 16 of the last 20 meetings.

I took a deep-dive into how these two teams stack up statistically and all signs point to a UGA blowout this weekend. I’ve been doing this same post for almost every Georgia game over the last three years and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more one-sided breakdown than what you’re about to read.

Here’s how UGA and Tech rank statistically among all 130 FBS programs:
