The struggling Georgia Bulldogs (4-4, 3-3 SEC) will host the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles on Saturday at Sanford Stadium in Athens. The game will kickoff at 1:00 p.m. and is available on pay-per-view and ESPN Gameplan only.
Tennessee Tech, an FCS team, is 5-3 on the year. In their only meeting in 1943, the Dawgs beat the Golden Eagles 67-0 in Athens.
Controversy is swirling around the Georgia program after a 4-4 start and big losses to Tennessee (45-19) and Florida (41-17). Hopefully, the Dawgs can put the pieces together and win at least 2 of their 4 remaining games to become bowl eligible.
