Georgia Bulldogs: David Sims

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia took care of business and did it quickly in Saturday’s 42-10 win against Georgia Tech.

The third-ranked Bulldogs (11-1) removed any question of whether they might look past their in-state rivals (6-6), scoring four touchdowns in their first five possessions as they swept into next Saturday’s SEC championship game matchup against No. 2 Alabama (11-1) with their 11th win in the last 12 tries against Georgia Tech.

Let’s recap some of the highs and the few lows from Saturday’s victory.

Records: Georgia 10-1 (7-1 SEC), Georgia Tech 6-5 (5-3 ACC)

Last week: Georgia beat Georgia Southern 45-14, Georgia Tech beat Duke 42-24

What’s the Story?: No. 3 Georgia needs one more win to all but ensure that next week’s SEC championship game is for a spot in the BCS championship game. That win will have to come in Saturday’s game against in-state rival Georgia Tech -- in the final home game Georgia’s seniors will play between Sanford Stadium’s storied hedges. Victory over the Yellow Jackets means an enormous buildup to next week’s game in Atlanta. A defeat would be one of the most devastating losses in Mark Richt’s tenure as Georgia’s coach.
