UGA-Georgia Tech series history

The Georgia Bulldogs will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Athens, Georgia, for the first time since 2018. The 2020 edition of Georgia-Georgia Tech was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Georgia Tech began Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate with a decent record, but the Yellow Jackets have struggled against Georgia recently. Georgia has outscored Georgia Tech 97-7 in the last two meetings between the rivals.

Georgia enters the 2022 edition of the in-state rivalry as the top-ranked team in the country. The Bulldogs are undefeated and likely headed for the College Football Playoff unless Georgia falls to Georgia Tech or LSU.
