The Dawgs nearly got caught in a trap game last week vs. Texas A&M but escaped 19-13. Senior Rodrigo Blankenship put his name as Georgia’s career points leader, concluding the game with four field goals. He also extended his school record PATs-made streak to 190. Junior running back D’Andre Swift rushed for 103 yards on 19 carries, averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Defensively, Georgia held the Aggies to -1 rushing yards and 274 total yards on 62 plays.

Good Performance

Safety J.R. Reed has been named one of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation’s best defensive back in college football. Former Bulldog All-American and current New York Giants defensive back Deandre Baker won the 2018 Thorpe Award.

Reed has helped lead Georgia to the top of the SEC in Scoring Defense at 10.7 points/game (No. 2 nationally), Rushing Defense at 68.5 yards/game (No. 2 nationally) and in Total Defense at 267.8 yards/game (No. 5 nationally).

Why Bet on Georgia Tech?

This is the season finale for Georgia Tech, which is 3-8 under first-year coach Geoff Collins. The Jackets come off a 28-26 win over NC State last Thursday to snap a three-game losing streak. Sophomore Jordan Mason matched a career high with 141 rushing yards, redshirt freshman James Graham accounted for 241 yards of offense and four touchdowns and true freshman Ahmarean Brown caught two touchdown passes.

In the process, Brown tied the school’s freshman record for touchdown catches in a season (7 — matching the record set by Calvin Johnson in 2004) while Graham pulled within one of the school record for touchdown passes by a freshman (11 – one short of the record of 12 set by Shawn Jones in 1989).

Graham’s three touchdown passes give him 11 for the season, which moved him within one of the Georgia Tech freshman record of 12 touchdown passes, set by Shawn Jones in 1989. Graham accounted for four total touchdowns (three passing, one rushing), the most by a Yellow Jacket since Marshall accounted for four vs. Virginia Tech on Nov. 11, 2017.

Big Numbers

Georgia Tech’s 28 points matched a season high as were its 395 yards. Georgia Tech moved to 19-4 against its rotating opponents from the ACC Atlantic Division since the league began divisional play in 2005.

Georgia vs Georgia Tech should be an easy one for the Bulldogs.

With season-ending injuries to WR Jalen Camp, OL Kenny Cooper and OL/DL Jahaziel Lee, Georgia Tech is down to eight seniors on its active roster. Texas A&M is the only NCAA Division I FBS teams with fewer seniors (6). Those eight seniors will be honored on Saturday.

The Georgia Tech-Georgia series is one of major college football’s oldest and most-played rivalries. Only 12 NCAA Division I FBS rivalries began before Georgia Tech and Georgia played for the first time in 1893 and only 17 FBS rivalries have been played more often than the 113 previous editions of “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate.”

Tech has never beaten Georgia when it was ranked in the Top 5, going 0-10.
