A few notes about the game

A few notes about the game, from Tech’s sports information department:

  • Saturday’s game marks the first Georgia Tech-Georgia meeting in which neither of the two teams are nationally ranked since 1996. Last year Tech was ranked 7th and Georgia was not ranked.
  • The Tech-UGA game is one of four ACC-SEC match-ups on Saturday. The SEC is 3-0 against the ACC this season. LSU beat North Carolina (30-24), Auburn def. Clemson (27-24 ot) and Alabama beat Duke (62-13). The previous two seasons (2008 and 2009) combined saw the SEC go 11-10 vs. ACC teams.
  • Georgia Tech did not play a home night game in 2010, a rarity on the Flats. The Yellow Jackets, however, will play their third road night game of the season on Saturday.
  • In the last 30 meetings with Georgia, Tech has gone scoreless in the first quarter 15 times. Meanwhile, the Jackets have gone scoreless in the second quarter just three times.
  • Tech has more fourth-down attempts this season (34) than Florida State, Boston College, Virginia Tech and Clemson combined (32).
  • There  still have a few remaining tickets for Saturday’s game, available online only at www.ramblinwreck.com/tickets. Once purchased, those tickets can be picked up Saturday after 5:45 p.m. at Sanford Stadium’s Gate 5.

I am not surprised some of the nose bleed seats are available. There are many tickets available in the lower bowl for less than face value.

I’ll have this game on in the background while I’m painting my basement. It’s not worth anyone’s full attention.

im not expecting big things from this game. hey, maybe the players are tired of hearing all of the crap about uga kicking their butts for the past year and maybe they will show up with an attitude. if we could get this team to play with some intensity and pride, I think we would be sitting better than we are right now. receivers, catch the stinkin ball when its thrown your way. d-line, play like your hair is on fire. o-line, man up and contain your guys. if we can do all three at the same time, we could win. hopefully our jackets will play with some pride

This team has no attitude or toughness. UGA will pull their pants down and give them a swirlie and they will like it just fine. That is Paul Johnson Football.
