Since 2000, there have been countless home games that fans look back on because they were so incredible. Which five were the best, though?

From 2000 to now, every win could be considered one of the best, but we’re talking games that when you reflect on them, the memories send chills down your spine.

These five home games are the most epic Georgia football victories since 2000.

From head coach Mark Richt’s first couple of years to the most recent season, choosing the top 5 wasn’t easy. However, when you include the word epic into the discussion, the five emerged.

These five games were huge moments in their respected seasons. Georgia needed to win, and losing wasn’t an option. The crowds were loud and difference makers. Plus, the incredible performances that came along with the victories ultimately helped us rank the matchups the way we did.
