Georgia Tech vs. Georgia: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Radio, Game Time and More

Rob Goldberg@TheRobGoldbergFeatured ColumnistNovember 20, 2012

When Georgia and Georgia Tech meet on the last Saturday of the college football season, the only emotion between them is "Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate." 

Both teams are headed to their respective championship games next week, but each side wants to get this win for pride and much more.

The Bulldogs have gotten the better of their rivals in recent history, winning 10 of the last 11 contests. However, the Yellow Jackets can score as well as almost anyone in the country and could cause problems for the SEC team.

Here is everything you need to know about what is certain to be an emotional game. 


When: November 24 at 12 p.m. ET

Where: Sanford Stadium, Athens, Ga.

Watch: ESPN

Live Stream: ESPN3

Radio: Georgia Affiliates, Georgia Tech Affiliates 


Spread: Georgia (-13) via Vegas Insider

Georgia Tech scores 38.5 points per game, but it will be facing a Georgia defense that has improved tremendously since the beginning of the year.

The Bulldogs have allowed just over eight points per game in the last four contests and have a level of athleticism that is not prevalent in the ACC.

On defense, Tech does not have much of a chance at slowing down this high-powered offense. 

Georgia is a safe bet.

What's at Stake?

As the No. 3 team in the BCS, Georgia controls its own destiny to win a national championship.

All the Bulldogs need to do is defeat their rival on the last game of the season, beat Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, and then come out on top of whichever team is selected as their opponent in the BCS National Championship.

Sounds easy, right?

Of course, they are in much better shape than 99.9 percent of the country. They just need to take one game at a time and make sure they do not look past the Yellow Jackets on Saturday.


Georgia Tech Player to Watch: Vad Lee

The Yellow Jackets have been going back and forth between senior Tevin Washington and freshman Vad Lee at quarterback in recent weeks.

While Washington might be the steadier option at this point, Lee can do some special things on the football field. He has great size that has helped him score five rushing touchdowns in the last three games for a total of nine for the season. 

Against Georgia, he needs to use his athleticism to help move the football when no one else on the team can.


Georgia Player to Watch: Todd Gurley

The freshman running back started the season as a big-play guy who got a few carries per game into a full-time featured back.

In that time, he has turned into one of the best in the country at his position. He already has over 1,000 rushing yards and is sixth in the nation with 6.3 yards per carry among players with at least 160 rushing attempts. 

With enough carries, he should have a field day against this defense.


Prediction: Georgia 38, Georgia Tech 21

Georgia Tech's triple-option attack will be able to score some points, but the Bulldogs are too talented to let this game get away from them at home.

The only thing that can hurt Georgia is if it starts looking ahead to the next game. With so much on the line, that should not happen.
