ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs and coach Kirby Smart had a first-half fight on their hands today in Sanford Stadium, but eventually cruised to a big 37-14 victory after bullying the Jackets up and down the field in the 2nd half.

It wasn’t a pretty start for the Bulldogs, who gave up a touchdown on Georgia Tech’s first drive of the game, but they settled in as a team and finished off the Jackets with ease in the final two quarters.

The offense still had their troubles in the red-zone, settling for three field goals through the first three quarters of the game. Georgia ran the ball successfully, but for the second game in a row, the passing game was extremely inconsistent.

Stetson Bennett did throw two key touchdown passes, both the credit on both scores should go to the receivers, Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint and Brock Bowers. Running back Kenny McIntosh had the most explosive play on offense with a big 83-yard reception in the 4th quarter that led to a two-yard rushing score soon after.

Kenny McIntosh ended the game with 86 rushing yards and one touchdown along with 96 receiving yards.

Bowers was an easy go-to option for the offense, catching 5 passes for just 20 yards, but his third-quarter touchdown was a massive moment in the game.

Georgia’s defense didn’t look great at times, but the first-team defense didn’t give up a single point after Tech’s opening touchdown run. They dominated for 3.5 quarters and gave the Yellow Jackets absolutely nothing in the 2nd half.

The cornerback play has been better. They’ve been a reliable group all year long, but this wasn’t the best day for Kelee Ringo and Kamari Lassiter.

The Yellow Jackets dropped two massive passes in the 1st half which appeared to change the game. They played hard, but they missed too many opportunities to hang around with Georgia. After giving their very best in the first half, Georgia’s talent and overall depth were the difference as the game went along.

Georgia was a heavy favorite in this game, and even with Georgia Tech’s best effort, they still won the game by 23-points.

Still, there are lots of things to improve upon. Georgia had multiple penalties and missed opportunities in the 1st half that kept them out of the end-zone. There’s a lot to clean up offensively.

The red-zone offense still needs to improve. They just don’t seem to be clicking the same way they were for most of the season. There’s room for improvement, and that’s something the staff will likely focus on this week leading up to the SEC Championship.

Stetson Bennett still has to play better. He ended the game just 10/18 for 140 yards and two touchdown passes. He’ll need to play much better against LSU.

In the end, Georgia didn’t cover, but this was another solid beating of their in-state rival. The Jackets fought hard, but Georgia wins this game 10 out of 10 times. 

Once again, the Georgia Bulldogs take down the Jackets. This time, for the 5th time in a row.
