Watch: Former UGA All-American explains keys to victory against Georgia Tech
Georgia takes on Georgia Tech Saturday in the rivalry known as “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate.” Given the Yellow Jackets dismal record — Georgia Tech has won just three games this season — there’s a temptation for UGA to possibly look past Saturday’s SEC championship game.
However, rivalries are a unique type of game, and while it might seem trite to suggest records are thrown out the window for contests such as these, there’s likely to be a motivation for the Bulldogs that wouldn’t typically exist against a different opponent in which UGA was a four-touchdown favorite.
That’s the subject of this edition of the Marlow’s Matchup with Brandon Adams and former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb.
Stinchcomb explains during the show the pride developed from earning bragging rights vs. the in-state rival — even in a year in which Georgia Tech hasn’t had much to brag about against anyone.
In additon to Stinchcomb’s commentary, UGA fans can also hear from…
- UGA coach Kirby Smart on his team’s mindset ahead of the game against Georgia Tech.
- Bulldogs tight end Charlie Woerner addresses what it’s like to grow up in Georgia around this rivalry and what rivalries accross the country have meant to the sport.
- And UGA linebacker Tae Crowder explains what it’s like to prepare for the Yellow Jackets knowing they don’t have to think about the triple-option offense anymore.
