Recent History and Team Trends vs. Scheduled Opponents
Looking optimistically at the statistics, like we always do this time of year. We are a very good football program that wants to be great. We have a ton of talent and heart and try, and we have been real close. We won the SEC with Richt at the helm twice. We were #3 once, #2 once. But other than those four real accomplishments – which were scattered across three remarkable seasons, of the eight Mark has been at the helm – we have always remained good.
UGA is 3-0 versus Okie State all-time.
Combined team scoring averages of 27 in Georgia-Carolina rivalry is low. So is number of Lamecock wins. Richt has dropped only two to them.
Arkansas: Georgia’s least faced foe in the SEC, from the SouthWest Conference, right into your living room. Arkansas can beat people, when they are at home. UGA 30-4 on opponents home fields. DAWGS hold 8-3 edge in series history.
Zona State is from the Pac-10, Brah, and we are 9-4-1 lifetime versus current Pac-10 members.
Dawgs have won six-of-eight against the LSU Bayou Bengals.
At UT, Neyland. Dawgs have slight recent history edge; however, very recent history favors the Vols slightly. We won last year and need another road win at Neyland, under Richt. Richt is the Road Warrior (for Christ). They once owned us for eleven years (nine straight Vol wins before Donnan broke through).
Dawgs have won 13 of 14 versus Vandy.
Dawgs have won 2 of 5 versus Gators and can even recent series (6 games) with win. We hold overall win record…and have dropped 16 of 19 to them!
Played Tenn Tech once before. Dawgs edged ’em, 67-0.
Dawgs have won three in a row versus our sister school, Auburn, in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, first played in Piedmont Park in Atlanta.
Dawgs have won 16 of 18 versus Wildcats, but the Big Blue has shown signs of growth with recent bowl wins. To us: they must remain a basketball only school.
Dawgs have won seven-of-eight versus the North Avenue Trade School. Tech beat us last year 45-42 in a classic game that will go down as one of the great wins in Georgia Tech lore, which is substantial. We win with substance this year.
Dawgs are 2-1 in SEC Title game.
Richt is 6-2 in bowl games.
