12-0, the Dawgs finish undefeated and show that they do indeed “run this state” in the process

What a way to wrap up the season. 

The Georgia Bulldogs close out their 2022 regular season undefeated closing out at home against their in-state rival the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.





The Bulldogs knew that the Jackets were coming into this game hot off of a win against a ranked North Carolina team in their home stadium, and you could see it in Georgia Tech’s first offensive drive of the game.

Georgia’s defense was tested early. The Yellow Jackets got off multiple runs of 7 or more and found ease moving it through the air on their first offensive drive of the game. On that drive the Yellow Jackets managed to complete a 34-yard pass too. Once they scored and Georgia had the ball, Tech managed to get stops and get the ball back. Momentum was shifting Tech’s way at the beginning. It seemed they were still riding off of last week’s win, but their fun came to an end once the second half hit.

The Georgia Bulldogs held the Yellow Jackets to just 1 yard in the third quarter. And 67 in the fourth. It took a minute, but once the guys in red and black got warmed up everything went smoothly. Everything except the touchdown let up in the fourth quarter by the second string defense, but you can let that one slide.





Georgia Tech is a good football team. Coach Smart said it earlier in the week. Stetson Bennett said it in a postgame interview afterwards. Under head coach Brent Key the Jackets have become quite the team. But the fact is the Bulldogs are just better.

You saw it. There wasn’t anything too crazy. Other than Kenny McIntosh’s day, no one really did anything that stood out. Play calling wasn’t wild. The Dawgs just went to play football and played better. 

Hopefully in the following days Georgia can work out the kinks so they can finally live out the vision they have for themselves. The Dawgs are a good football team, and they’ve been playing well, but it feels like one little thing is missing. Missouri was almost a loss. Kentucky lacked proper execution. They allowed Tech to get off to a hot start. Sedrick Van Pran spoke about it after the game saying UGA hasn’t even played its best ball yet.

Their potential is limitless if the Dawgs can get their ducks in a row. That’s something they’ll work on this week as they anticipate the Brian Kelly and the Louisiana State University Tigers in the SEC Championship.
