Georgia football has officially done it. They finish the regular season a perfect 12-0 for the first time since the 1980 squad did it, and they are far from done.
The Dawgs shut out Georgia Tech 45-0 and demoralized the Yellow Jackets on their home field. Bobby Dodd Stadium turned into another mini Sanford Stadium as the Dawgs fans made up at least 80% of the people there.
Plus, this is Georgia’s third shutout of the year, which comes at the right time. To close out the regular season with a shutout has to be a big confidence boost.
The Dawgs put up 463 yards of offense, including 255 passing yards and 208 rushing yards on the day.
Georgia football makes history as they move to 12-0 on the season.
Georgia averaged nine yards a play against the Yellow Jackets, and the talent gap between these two teams is wider than an old-school station wagon. The Dawgs didn’t have to do much to find success because they overpowered Tech on every play.
Defensively, Georgia held Tech to 98 yards on the ground and 68 through the air to give them a total of 166 yards averaging 3.25 yards a play. The Dawgs did their job, kept them out of the endzone, and shut them down almost completely.
Georgia Tech had some plays here and there, but it was all Dawgs all day for the most part.
Stetson Bennett completed 14-of-20 passes for 255 yards and four touchdowns, which means Bennett completed 70% of his passes on the day. JT Daniels and Carson Beck would come in late, but neither guy threw a pass.
Brock Bowers reminded everyone that he is the best tight end as he led the wideouts with three catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. His 77-yard touchdown was another highlight, and it once again showed off his wheels.
George Pickens made his return on Saturday and recorded one catch for five yards. It’s a miracle he is out there playing so that one catch means everything to him and the team. He is back, and it’s going to be exciting to see how he makes the most of the next two to three games.
On the ground, Kenny McIntosh led the way with two carries for 66 yards and one touchdown. He scored on a 59-yard touchdown run and reminded everyone that he could put up numbers too.
This game saw another week of playing the starters but also resting them as well. Georgia plays a tough Alabama team next week, and the Dawgs need to be as healthy as possible.
The Dawgs took Georgia Tech to the woodshed and once again showed the world that nothing would distract them from their goal of winning it all.
Georgia checked off the last hump of the regular season as they wanted to finish with a perfect 12-0. They did and continue to prove to college football there isn’t another team remotely close to playing at their level.
The Dawgs made history today and look like a team ready to win it all.
