It’ll be the first Georgia-Georgia Tech game at night in Athens

The football game between Georgia and Georgia Tech in Athens on Nov. 27 will kick off at 7:45 p.m. and be televised on ESPN, it was announced Monday.

The game will be Georgia’s first — and only — this season to be played in Sanford Stadium at night. The Bulldogs’ previous five home games started in the noon hour. Also, this will mark the first time a Georgia-Georgia Tech game has been played in Athens at night, UGA confirmed.

Georgia, which doesn’t play this week, will enter the game with a 5-6 record. Tech will be 6-5 or 5-6, depending on Saturday’s game against Duke.

ESPN picked up the Tech-Georgia game after CBS, which has first choice among games in SEC stadiums, chose LSU-Arkansas for its 3:30 p.m. telecast on Nov. 27.

So Durham & Barnhart
Just said on the radio that the SEC will not Suspend ANY UGA player that broke the rules in the Fight and Rushing the Field during the Auburn v UGA game.
The SEC is a JOKE. They make rules and don’t even act like they matter.
UGA quit whinning about AUBRUN breaking the RULES and going after your QB unless you want Most of your starting O and most of your starting D to have to sit the TECH game. You had too many players break the rules rushing the field.
UGA fans will love the TECH game. It kicks at 7:45 on ESPN. Thank God I don’t go to Athens anymore. All the DRUNK UGA fans are the worst. Don’t even think there is another SEC teams fans that are as CLASSLESS as DRUNK DAWGS.

Will UGA have any suspended players for going onto the field during the fight at the Aurburn game?

Still@theBAR – Thanks for the update. No players suspended. Rules, what rules? UGA has no right to complain about breaking rules. The school should enforce the rule if the SEC will not.

Tech is concentrating on Duke right now. They know they are going to get blown out in Athens. I’ll give Tech the slight edge over Duke since they’ll be playing at home in front of 20,000 screaming twinks dressed up like bee’s.

AHS – About 25 player went on the field when the UGA player attached the the AU player who hit Murray on the leg. Rules say that leaving the bench during a brawl is an automatic suspension. Except for UGA

Dawg2011, LMAO! “freezing”? What is it going to be 50 degrees or something? Freezing is 11 below with out any wind. God I miss those Georgia winter where you had to leave your faucets dirpping.

Tech v. UGA, will anybody watch? Make it a Wednesday afternoon game.

Rich make a deal with you we will suspend players when Fairley is suspended. Sorry the Bugs will have to face most of the Dawgs depending on how bad Murray’s knee is after the cheap shot artist worked on him all game.

Rich, It was the three year anniversary of our touchdown against Florida. Just re-living the moment. Sure it was awkward doing it during the Aubrun game, but hey it was spontaneous. Again.

If UGA could play ONLY teams like Louisiana-Lafayette, Vanderbilt, and Idaho State each and every week…………….teams of their calibre……………….what a delusional world it would be.

Wait…………………that IS their world.

Delusional.

I heard that AU players also rushed the field – cameras did not show that – anyone at the game catch that?

All you Tech fans can keep saying you’re going to beat us but without Nesbitt to run your pathetic offense, how do you expect to win? Your team is just as bad (or worse) than UGA so quit saying you’re gonna roll over us. If anything, the score will be 9-7 because that’s how both teams are playing.

RICH,

YOU COULD SUSPEND EVERY STARTER ON THE UGA TEAM THIS YEAR AND TECH STILL WOULDN’T HAVE A PRAYER. I’M SURE GA TECH WOULD JUST SIT THERE IF SOMEONE TOOK A DIRTY HIT ON NESBITT! KEEP IN MIND PAUL JOHNSON SUGGESTED TO SLAP GA FANS IN FACE JUST FOR TALKING SMACK. HOW CLASSY IS THAT?

The Auburn beat down left a bad taste in the Doggies mouth simply because they got a taste of their own medicine for a change. Dirty play, personal fouls and their whole team going on the field to fight. Is it any wonder they’ve had 11 arrests this season?
As for the game on 11/27, talk about the meaningless game of the year. Tech will most likely be 6-5 after beating Duke and be bowl eligible. They will be playing to knock UGA out of bowl eligibility. UGA meanwhile will be playing to become bowl eligible for another exciting trip to some other place that makes Shreveport look like a 5 star resort….yawn!
