TECH-UGA SERIES HIGHLIGHTS
Nov. 26, 1949: Tech 7, Georgia 6. The Grant Field victory that started “The Drought,” Bobby Dodd’s eight-year mastery of Georgia.
Dec. 1, 1984: Tech 35, Georgia 18. In Athens, this was Curry’s turnaround game for the program, one that ended a six-game losing streak to UGA.
Dec. 2, 1989: Tech 33, Georgia 22. Jerry Mays ran for 207 yards to help complete a remarkable 7-4 Tech turnaround after an 0-3 start.
Nov. 28, 1998: Tech 21, Georgia 19, in Athens. Brad Chambers’ 35-yard field goal in the final seconds ended a seven-game losing streak to UGA.
Nov. 27, 1999: Tech 51, Georgia 48, in overtime. In the most thrilling game in Bobby Dodd Stadium annals, Joe Hamilton’s last home game was triumphant. Luke Manget’s second-chance, OT field goal sent Tech fans into euphoria. Many of them carried Hamilton — who was second in the Heisman Trophy voting that season — on their shoulders and around the stadium.
Nov. 29, 2008: Tech 45, Georgia 42, in Athens. Paul Johnson’s first Tech team overcame a 26-12 halftime deficit to break a seven-year skid against a Bulldog team that was ranked No. 1 in the preseason. Freshman Roddy Jones ran for 214 yards.
Nov. 29, 2014: Tech 30, Georgia 24 (OT), in Athens. Harrison Butker booted a game-tying, career-long 53-yard field goal as time expired to force overtime after a Malcom Mitchell TD catch that gave UGA a 24-21 lead with 0:18 left. Tech’s Zach Laskey scored on the first possession in overtime and D.J. White intercepted Hudson Mason to seal the win.
