“These guys, just like the group last year, have been really special,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said about the senior class earlier this week. “I mean, we can have anywhere from 20 to 25 guys walking out there and to look and see what they’ve done, to be the winningest class and go through a COVID year where every game was an SEC game. I just — you know, I find that respectful and amazing, because you don’t get the games outside the conference in that season. And they were still able to do it.”

“A lot of credit goes to the character of that group,” he continued. “There’s not a huge star-studded cast. There won’t be 15 draft picks out there, but there’s some guys that really care about UGA and have sacrificed a lot to this program.”

Over the last four years, Georgia has won 45 games including 14 in 2021 as a part of the National Championship season. Players have been a part of three SEC East winning teams as the Bulldogs will play for the SEC Championship against LSU on December 3rd. Despite winning a Sugar Bowl, a Peach Bowl, an Orange Bowl and a National Championship, Georgia has not taken home the SEC title since 2017 meaning that only sixth-year seniors have been a part of an SEC Championship Game victory. A win on Saturday makes them the winningest group in Georgia Football program history after mark of 45 wins last week at Kentucky. The Class of 2021 finished 45-8 while the Class of 2022 currently sits at 45-5.

In 115 all-time meetings between these two teams, Georgia holds a 69-41-5 advantage including four straight since a loss in Kirby Smart’s first season on the job. The Bulldogs won 45-0 last year in Atlanta. This will be Georgia Tech’s first trip to Athens since 2018 with the 2020 game being cancelled due to COVID-19.
