Georgia handles GT to keep playoff hopes alive
ATLANTA, Ga. -- Clean, old-fashioned hate was renewed once more in Atlanta Saturday afternoon and the No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs kept their College Football Playoff hopes alive and well thanks to a 38-7 dismantling of rival Georgia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The Dawgs were dominant in every phase of the game amassing 471 yards of total offense and only allowing 188 yards rushing to the nation's No. 4 ranked rushing offense. Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm was efficient, completing 12 of 16 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns, one to Ahkil Crumpton and one to Javon Wims. Sony Michel led the way on the ground for UGA with 85 yards and a touchdown while Nick Chubb added 53 yards and one touchdown.
Georgia Tech cut the Georgia lead to 14-7 late in the first half, but the Dawgs went on to score 24 unanswered points for their ninth straight win at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The win was Georgia's 11th of the season (11-1) setting them up for a date with the winner of the Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama in the SEC Championship game next Saturday.
