Georgia TechOn Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Sanford Stadium in Athens. The game will be televised by ESPN at 7:45 p.m. ET.

The game marks the 105th edition of Clean Old Fashioned Hate, one of the nation’s most heated in-state rivalries. Georgia leads the overall series 60-39-5 and has dominated the Yellow Jackets over the last 20 years, winning 15 of the last 20 games.

Georgia (5-6, 3-5 SEC) needs to beat the Yellow Jackets not only for in-state bragging rights, but also to qualify for a postseason bowl game. Georgia Tech (6-4, 4-4 ACC) comes into the game having lost three of their last four contests.

The Bulldogs enjoyed last weekend off while the Yellow Jackets beat Duke 30-20 at home. The off week should help the Dawgs get extra preparation for Tech’s triple-option offense.

  • Music City Bowl – 12/30/2010 vs. ACC
  • Liberty Bowl – 12/31/2010 vs. C-USA
