It’s the 112th edition of “Clean Old-Fashioned Hate,” and the last regular-season game for Georgia as the Dawgs travel just down the road from Athens to Atlanta to take on in-state rival Georgia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Bulldawg Illustrated staff have your score predictions for the Bulldogs vs. the Yellow Jackets

Hamilton Culpepper: Bulldogs 20 – Yellow Jackets 10

“Dawgs 20-0… Avoid the rush… hate tech early.”

Jeff Dantzler: Bulldogs 18 – Yellow Jackets 10

“Dawgs 18-10…”

Rebecca Gemes: Bulldogs 35 – Yellow Jackets 7

“As usual, our defense shows out and puts a stop to the Tech offense. On the other hand, our offense is back in the zone, missing Cager like Cheri said, but ready to put some points on the board to show the doubting world that we can finish the drill and show out in Mercedes Benz. 35-7 Georgia.”

Josh Hancher: Bulldogs 41 – Yellow Jackets 6

“Looking at Stat Splits for Jackets at home, vs. FBS, and the last four games, Tech is allowing approximately 4 TDs per game. UGA, on average, has 10-12 Offensive drives. I’m going to assume that UGA can score on half of their drives, get the 4 TDs and fill in with FGs. Dawgs score 34 offensive points. Using some of the Analytics from the boys at DawgSports.com – the Jackets are comparable to Vandy and Arkansas. Tech won’t get to double digits points, and the Dawgs’ D gets a TD; so, give me Bulldogs 41-6 over the Jackets.”

Cheri Leavy: Bulldogs 28 – Yellow Jackets 13

“I really want to put up a Christmas tree and Dantzler says we can’t if we lose to Tech! I think Kirby will have the team focused and Dawgs win 28-13. We will miss (Lawrence) Cager!”

Vance Leavy: Bulldogs 41 – Yellow Jackets 13

“Fret not, Bulldog Nation, our offense is about to come alive. Dawgs 41 – Bees 13. Gobble, Gobble … to hell with Tech!”

Lance McCurley: Bulldogs 41 – Yellow Jackets 7

“The Dawgs’ offense shouldn’t have a problem running the ball against Tech’s defense. D’Andre Swift bursts for 100 and a TD, and senior Brian Herrien gets 75 and a TD as well. Fromm has three touchdown passes and gains some confidence. I think George Pickens, D-Rob, and Charlie Woerner all have touchdowns. Georgia defeats the Yellow Jackets 41-7.”

Bob Miller: Bulldogs 34 – Yellow Jackets 13

“The Georgia offense hasn’t scored 30 points in a game since October 5th when they beat Tennessee 43-14. Georgia Tech is playing better ball in the second half of the season, but it still won’t matter. Dawgs are just too talented, too focused, but I expect the coaching staff to rest the starters in preparation for the SEC Conference Championship Game; so, don’t expect a blow out either. Georgia O still scores over 30, though… Bulldogs 34-13 over the Yellow Jackets.”

Matthew Pasek: Bulldogs 48 – Yellow Jackets 3

“The Dawgs roll on offense this week against the Yellow Jackets and Kirby lets the Dawgs pour it on.  Fromm goes for 300+ through the air, Pickens goes for 100+ receiving and White/Cook combine for 100+ rushing. Georgia 48 – Tech 3.”

Greg Poole: Bulldogs 27 – Yellow Jackets 3

“In an effort to continue my streak of hopelessly inaccurate predictions, I’ll say 27-3 UGA – a score that will convince everyone in the solar system that Georgia will lose to LSU. The current string of offensive thuds has to be a brilliant scheme by Kirby to lure the Tigers into fatal overconfidence, right? Right? Anyone?”

Murray Poole: Bulldogs 42 – Yellow Jackets 7

“Jackets are giving up 214 yards rushing per game and now, the Tech defense is facing a Bulldog offense that despite running the ball at less efficiency in recent weeks is still averaging right at 200 yards on the ground. And the Jacket offense, averaging just 17.5 points per game, is about to encounter a Georgia defense that is second in the country in both points allowed and rushing defense. Due to the Bulldogs’ domination of this series over the past two decades (Dawgs have won 15 of last 19 and 9 straight in Atlanta), the rivalry may not be what it used to be, and Georgia keeps it that way by swatting the Jackets, 42-7.”
