Game Over.

Whew. When the dust settled, the teams combined for 1,085 yards, 118 points, and only five punts. Six different Yellow Jackets scored a touchdown on that Saturday afternoon at Kenan Stadium. Georgia Tech’s Robert Godhigh scored three touchdowns – two rushing, one receiving – and the Jackets rattled off seven rushing scores.

Jamal Golden also added a 100-yard kickoff return – the second of his two kick returns for a score in 2012.

Will Saturday’s game at Kenan Stadium be another high-scoring affair? The winning team has scored 30+ points in 14 of the last 31 meetings.

Saturday will be the 50th series meeting with Georgia Tech owning a 28-18-3 overall advantage. Tech has won the last five meetings in the series, eight of the last nine, and 14 of the last 16. The Jackets are 10-11-3 all-time in Chapel Hill, including a 2-1 mark under Paul Johnson, who is 5-1 all-time vs. the Tar Heels. Saturday’s game will kick at 7 p.m. ET on ESPNU and 680 The Fan.
