Series History

GT leads the all-time series, 7-3, and has won three of the last four meetings between the cross-division opponents. The last time BC beat the Yellow Jackets on the road was in 2007 when Matt Ryan and Co. continued their perfect season with a 24-10 victory over then-No. 15 GT. Jeff Hafley’s Eagles hosted the Yellow Jackets during the COVID-19-affected 2020 season. BC rumbled to a 48-27 win. BC put on an offensive clinic, a week removed from blowing an 18-point lead at then-No. 1 Clemson.

It was the teams’ first meeting since 2016 when they kicked off the season with a game in Dublin, Ireland. GT scored two touchdowns: one on its first drive, the other on its last. The second was a four-yard, game-winning Dedrick Mills score that spoiled Patrick Towles’ first game in an Eagles uniform.

Georgia Tech’s Record: 3-6 (2-5 ACC)
