Week 17 Recap
Daily Soccer Podcast
The Georgia Bulldogs will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at noon ET on Saturday at Sanford Stadium. If the nothing to nothing final from the last time they met is any indication, this contest will be decided by the defense.
UGA beat the Kentucky Wildcats 16-6 last week. The Bulldogs’ RB Kenny McIntosh looked sharp as he rushed for one TD and 143 yards on 19 carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time McIntosh has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Jack Podlesny delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the North Carolina Tar Heels last week, but they still walked away with a 21-17 victory. The Yellow Jackets’ RB Hassan Hall filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown.
The Bulldogs are the favorite in this one, with an expected 35.5-point (!) margin of victory. They have been good against the spread at home while Georgia Tech has been good against the spread on the road, so something will have to give.
The wins brought UGA up to 11-0 and Georgia Tech to 5-6. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: UGA enters the matchup with only ten touchdowns allowed, which is the best in the nation. As for the Yellow Jackets, they come into the matchup boasting the 34th most sacks in the nation at 28.
