NO. 22 GEORGIA AT GEORGIA TECH
When: Nov. 26.
Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium (55,000 capacity), Atlanta.
Series history: Georgia leads the series 61-37-5.
Why it's No. 22: This in-state rivalry has been one-sided in Georgia's favor for decades, but the Yellow Jackets managed to heat things up with their wild 45-42 victory over the ‘Dogs in Athens in 2008. Since then, the games have gone down to the wire, with the Bulldogs managing to hang on for victories in a rivalry that has become competitive again. Georgia coach Mark Richt gets a lot of grief for his dismal record against arch-rival Florida, but he certainly knows how to beat in-state rival Tech. Richt is 9-1 against the Yellow Jackets.
