ATLANTA — Georgia Tech tried to get the ball in the hands of its best player, running back Jahmyr Gibbs. He’s a former top-100 recruit and the type of player Georgia Tech needs more of if it plans on making the rivalry with Georgia competitive.
Quarterback Jordan Yates lobbed a swing pass to Gibbs, hoping to get him in space and use his speed to make a play.
He was brought down the play by walk-on safety Dan Jackson for a four-yard loss. The play best summed up Saturday’s game, a 45-0 win for the Bulldogs over the rival Yellow Jackets.
Georgia now moves to 12-0 on the season, something it had not done since 1980. Georgia Tech meanwhile fell to 3-9, making it the third consecutive season the Yellow Jackets have finished the year with three wins. If you include Georgia’s season-opening win over Clemson, the Bulldogs finished with the same number of ACC wins this season as the Yellow Jackets did.
Georgia dominated the game from start to finish, cruising to a 24-0 halftime lead. It helps when you have a tight end such as Brock Bowers, who raced through the Georgia Tech secondary for a 77-yard touchdown. The fact that he did so untouched only further demonstrates the gap between the two programs.
