Georgia gets its revenge on Georgia Tech

ATLANTA — At least Georgia can make the claim that it runs the state again. In a year where the Bulldogs won’t fly an Southeastern Conference East championship banner and there will be no trip to the league title game, they closed out the regular season by turning away archrival Georgia Tech 13-7 on Saturday in Bobby Dodd Stadium. Georgia (9-3) ended the regular season just like it started it – with a four game-winning streak – but whether that’s enough for coach Mark Richt to keep his job still remains to be seen. read more

Georgia Tech hoping to extend bowl streak

ATLANTA — Outside of a stunning upset of Florida State, there hasn’t been much to cheer about at Georgia Tech. Injuries and lackluster play have turned the Yellow Jackets into one of the country’s most disappointing teams. Yet there’s a minor consolation prize still within reach.
