Let's move onto this week's game...
I mentioned above that these two schools first met in 1893. Georgia Tech were Georgia's third ever opponent. Georgia actually started the season that year with Tech. The Yellow Jackets won 28-6. The only other time they started the season with Tech, Georgia won 12-0 in the turn of the 20th century in the year 1900. Overall the Bulldogs lead the series 63-37-5. Throughout the decades, Georgia has won the series with Georgia Tech majority of the time. Here is a breakdown by each decade.
Mark Richt has done very against Georgia Tech. He has 11 wins against the Yellow Jackets which are tied for the most against any school. Here are the schools where Richt has won the most against.
Winning at Bobby Dodd Stadium is something the Georgia has done quite well in seasons' past. Here is a list of the opposing stadiums where Georgia has had the most success against.
It is very sad what happened to Aaron Murray in the win over Kentucky. Murray gave everything he could for Georgia and the Bulldog Nation. He will be a success in the future for sure. In this last game he posted up very good numbers as usual. He was 18-23 for 183 yards and four touchdowns. He will end his career with the most the pass yards, total yards, passing touchdowns and pass completions in the history of the SEC.
Like I mention he had four touchdown passes in the game. It was his 11th game with at least 4 touchdown passes in a game. He is 10-1 in those games. In 10 of those 11 games he has thrown 0 or 1 interceptions including this past one. Kentucky and South Carolina are the only schools where he has thrown for four or more scores against twice.
Of those four touchdown passes, three came in the first quarter. It was the 5th time where he has thrown three of more TD passes in one quarter. Here are all those times.
In the next few weeks look out for an all Aaron Murray Statistically Speaking article. There you will find everything you need to know about the senior record holder and his career at Georgia. Hutson Mason will be taking over for Aaron Murray as starter this weekend. It is unfair to count most of his career stats against Murray, but some of them I can, check out these numbers.
Running the ball again for Georgia was Todd Gurley, or should I say receiving the ball as well. In the four games since coming back from injury, the sophomore running back has caught 21 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns. He had five receptions for 90 yards and two touchdowns in the last game by itself. Gurley is tied for 2nd for most receiving touchdowns by a running back in the FBS. Here are those leaders.
Gurley is not in the top 10 in receptions and receiving yards by running backs in the FBS, but in the SEC he is right up there. Here are the top three in the conference in both categories.
One last thing about Todd Gurley. He keeps climbing the charts for most career rush yards by a Georgia Bulldog. He has a very good chance of entering the top 10 this upcoming week and maybe even higher. Here are the players where he is around and the place and yards they hold.
Gurley is the not the only Bulldog among the leaders in certain position categories in the SEC. Tight end Arthur Lynch caught two more touchdowns last week against Kentucky. He now has five this season and eight in his career. His five this season is the most by a SEC tight end. Here is that leaderboard.
Defensively Garrison Smith was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week for his performance against the Wildcats. It was the 2nd time he has won this award this season. The senior had 7 tackles including 3 for loss. He also had 2 sacks and forced 2 fumbles. Here is a list of Bulldogs with more than 2 tackles for loss in one game for Georgia this season.
Here are the players for the Dawgs with 2 or more sacks in a game this season.
WOMEN's BASKETBALL ---
Andy Landers and his team keep winning. After defeating South Carolina State on Tuesday, the Lady Bulldogs improved to 6-0 on the season. One of the stars for Georgia in this past game was Tiaria Griffin. Griffin was one assist away notching the third triple-double in Lady Bulldogs history. Teresa Edwards in 1986 and Tracy Henderson in 1995 are the only two. Several of Andy Landers' players have come close since the beginning of the 1999-2000 season. Here are those so close moments.
Georgia faces George Washington on Friday and a to be determined opponent on Sunday at the Georgia State Invitational this week.
MEN's BASKETBALL ---
You can easily say that Charles Mann is not having a sophomore slump this season. You can say he is having a sophomore surge. Through five games, Mann is averaging 16.8 points per game while leading the team in assists and steals as well. He is shooting a very impressive 52 percent from the floor as well. This is a major improvement from last season, where he only shot 34.6 percent. He is in 5th place in the SEC is field goal percentage among guards. Here are the top five guard shooters in the conference.
Mark Fox and the team return home and square off against Appalachian State this Friday. Tipoff is 5:00 pm.
BULLDOGS ON THE PGA TOUR ---
After finishing 13th on the Web.com Tour money list last season, one of the newest PGA Tour members made the most of his new title by winning the 2013 Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational. Kisner finished the tournament at 13 under par. He is the third former Bulldog to win this month after victories by Chris Kirk and Harris English.
BULLDOGS IN THE NBA ---
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope continues his way through his rookie season with the Detroit Pistons. KCP, who now starts as shooting guard is averaging 7.9 points per game and even more as a starter. He is also playing sharp defense as well, pilfering 7 steals in the last 3 games. Last season for Georgia, he was 4th in the SEC averaging 2 steals per game. Here is a list of the former Bulldogs with the most steals in a season while playing in the NBA.
BULLDOGS IN THE NFL ---
Knowshon Moreno reminded a lot of Bulldog fans last Sunday night of what he did between the hedges when he ran for a career-high 224 yards on 37 attempts against the New England Patriots. His previous high was 161 yards back in 2010 against the Chiefs. The 224 yards was the most by a former Bulldog in a NFL game. Here are the top five during the regular season in this category.
Another Bulldog shining this season is rookie Alec Ogletree. The linebacker had 11 tackles to lead the Rams in a victory over the Bears. He has 75 tackles this season and is 39th in the NFL, but 3rd among rookies. Here is the top five in that first year list.
