Georgia's victory over Texas A&M in the Advocare V100 Independence Bowl gave the Bulldogs eight or more victories for the 13th consecutive year--a record no other Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team can claim.
The 'Dogs won four of their last five games to give Georgia with a 90-27 record over the past nine seasons under Mark Richt who has the third best winning percentage among all active FBS coaches in the country.
Another point of pride in the Richt era is the 160 football players who have earned degrees since 2001.
Georgia's average home football attendance of 92,746 ranked sixth best in the country for the 2009 season according to NCAA statistics. The 92,746 figure represents a sellout in all six Bulldog home games. The sixth-place finish marks the 23rd time in the last 28 years that Georgia has ranked among the nation's top six teams in average home attendance. It's also the 27th time in the last 28 years the Bulldogs have finished among the top seven.2009 Team Captains
