The Georgia Bulldogs had won 12 of the last 13 against Georgia Tech – but the Yellow Jackets didn’t seem to care and beat Georgia on the road in overtime for a 40-34 win.
On Saturday #16 Georgia Tech joined the Clemson Tigers in pulling off upsets over the SEC East with a win over #9 Georgia.
Georgia took the lead early with a TD from RB Nick Chubb to give them a 7-0 lead, but the Yellow Jackets tied it up in the second-half with a TD pass from QB Justin Thomas to Darren Waller with 0:13 remaining in the half to even the score at 7-7.
Four TDs and three lead changes made up the second half – first with a 99-yard fumble return-TD from Georgia defender Damian Swann, then on a TD run by Georgia Tech RB Zach Laskey – his first of three TDs in the game. Laskey had his second TD to give Georgia Tech their first lead of the game with 5:06 remaining, making the score 21-17. With 0:22 remaining in the game, Georgia scored on a TD from QB Hutson Mason to Malcolm Mitchell to give them a 24-21 lead, but the Yellow Jackets managed to go down the field just far enough for PK Harrison Butker to make a 53-yard FG and send the game to OT.
In OT the Yellow Jackets scored first on a TD run by Laskey. The Bulldogs got the ball back but Mason threw an INT that ended the game.
With the win the Yellow Jackets broke their 5-game losing streak to the Bulldogs that dated back to 2009.
