First One To 30 Wins In UGA-GT Battle

This weekend’s Georgia-Georgia Tech game for the Governor’s Cup will mark the first time the game has been played under the lights in Athens.  And the lights could be shining on a rarity should Tech pull the upset.

Paul Johnson is 1-1 against the Bulldogs after his first two encounters with them.  If he wins on Saturday he’ll be the first Yellow Jacket coach since Bobby Dodd to have a winning record against UGA after at least three games in the series.  In other words, Tech hasn’t had a lot of success in this rivalry.

Georgia leads the all-time series 60-39-5 and Mark Richt is a stellar 8-1 against Tech.  But five of the last six games have been decided by seven points or less and Tech won 45-42 the last time the teams met in Athens.

If you’re looking for a magic number in Saturday’s game, pay attention to the number 30.

Under Richt, Georgia is 53-7 when they score 30 points in a game.  They’re just 6-14 when they give up 30.

On the other side of the field, Georgia Tech is a wicked 19-0 under Johnson when they put up 30 points.  But they’re just 5-5 when they allow 30.

Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?  First team to 30 wins.
