No. 1 Georgia completes perfect regular season, beats Georgia Tech

Kendall Milton rushed for a career-high 156 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead top-ranked Georgia to a 31-23 victory over rival Georgia Tech in nonconference play on Saturday night at Atlanta.

Carson Beck was 13-of-20 passing for 175 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Bulldogs (12-0), who extended their nation-best winning streak to 29 games. The victory established a new Southeastern Conference record that Georgia previously shared with Alabama, which twice won 28 games in a row (1978-80, 1991-93).

Daijun Edwards rushed for a score and Dominic Lovett had a touchdown reception for the Bulldogs, who won their 15th straight road game.

Haynes King rushed for 24 yards and two touchdowns and went 11-of-20 passing for 158 yards for the Yellow Jackets (6-6). Jamal Haynes had 81 yards on 15 carries, and Eric Singleton Jr. had four catches for 96 yards.

Georgia has won the past six overall meetings with Georgia Tech and has emerged victorious in each of the past 12 games played in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets last notched a home win over the Bulldogs in 1999.

Georgia Tech staged a rally in the fourth quarter as Aidan Birr kicked a 40-yard field goal to pull the Yellow Jackets within 31-16 with 12:13 remaining.

The Bulldogs were threatening to add more points, but Beck’s pass was intercepted in the end zone by K.J. Wallace with 8:24 to play. Georgia Tech then traveled 80 yards on 10 plays with King’s 5-yard run cutting Georgia’s lead to eight with 3:46 left.

But the Yellow Jackets never again saw the ball as the two-time defending national champion Bulldogs ran out the clock to conclude their third consecutive 12-0 regular season.

Earlier, the Bulldogs went ahead to stay on Milton’s 3-yard run for a 14-10 lead with 12:40 left in the first half. Birr’s 45-yard field goal pulled the Yellow Jackets within one with 6:06 left before Edwards scored on a 3-yard run with 1:14 remaining to give Georgia a 21-13 halftime lead.

The Bulldogs added 10 third-quarter points as Peyton Woodring kicked a 39-yard field goal with 5:15 left and Milton scored from the Georgia Tech 4 to make it 31-13 with 31 seconds left in the period.

Georgia Tech led 10-7 after the first quarter thanks to King’s 9-yard scoring run and Birr’s 25-yard field goal. Georgia received Beck’s 29-yard touchdown pass to Lovett midway through the frame.

No. 1 Georgia squares off with history, Georgia Tech

No. 1 Georgia can write another chapter in a historic stretch of college football dominance by winning the Governor’s Cup in Atlanta on Saturday.

The Bulldogs, back-to-back champions on a 28-game winning streak and massive favorites at Georgia Tech, can propel the program to the top of Southeastern Conference annals with a 29th consecutive win. Only Alabama, twice winners of 28 games in a row, has equaled Georgia’s current run of success.

Georgia Tech (6-5) can secure a winning season and an upset for the ages by taking down Georgia (11-0).

However, the Yellow Jackets haven’t beaten the Bulldogs since 2016. Keeping it close might qualify as a moral victory for the Yellow Jackets, who are eager to make the rivalry more competitive.

The most recent Georgia loss to Tech was the 28-27 shocker in ’16. The Bulldogs have won five in a row, including the past three games by a combined score of 134-21.

An offensive lineman for Georgia Tech from 1997-2000, Georgia Tech coach Brent Key said his current players would know by the end of the week that he was on Georgia Tech teams that beat Georgia three times in a row.

Georgia Tech was 3-4 at one point this season but beat Syracuse last week to earn its sixth win and secure bowl eligibility.

“For rivalries to be rivalries, they have to be competitive football games,” Key said.

More than a three-touchdown favorite over their in-state rivals, Georgia has clinched the SEC West and goes back to Atlanta next week for the SEC championship game against the Crimson Tide.

Two wins — this week and next — assure the Bulldogs a spot in the College Football Playoff. At that point, two more wins would complete Georgia’s three-peat mission. And speaking of history, the last time a team won three consecutive college football championships was 1934-36 (Minnesota).

The rest of the world is 0-13 in bids to go from repeat to three-time winners.

For at least a few more weeks, Georgia coach Kirby Smart is trying to keep his team focused on what’s next.

“Geographically, they’re close,” Smart said of facing Georgia Tech. “They’re in your state. You are playing for something every time you play them. You’re playing for the state championship.”

Smart said the three Cs — culture, chemistry and character — are the defining the Bulldogs’ unparalleled levels of success, with 24 of their 28 wins in the current streak coming by double-digit margins.

Adding a “B” to the equation won’t draw boos in Athens.

First-year starter Carson Beck has 21 touchdowns and five interceptions and is on pace to push 4,000 passing yards even without factoring in any bowl games down the line. He completed 24 of 30 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns against Tennessee last week.

“I have super high expectations for myself. They’re only going to continue to get higher,” Beck said.

Kirby Smart sets Georgia’s focus on ‘state championship’

Georgia can fill out its football calendar for the next two weeks in ink even though the end-of-season combination of the Thanksgiving weekend Governor’s Cup and SEC championship game was widely anticipated.

In a season of leftovers, coach Kirby Smart wants his Bulldogs (11-0) to fix on the main course.

This Saturday, that’s Georgia Tech.

“Love rivalry week across the country. What makes college football really special to me, all the rivalries you get to watch all this week,” Smart said. “Very unique week timing-wise. A lot of distractions with Thanksgiving going on. Those are good distractions, but they are different. How you deal with that, and manage that, is important.”

Players rate Georgia Tech as the program’s premiere rival, even with Alabama on deck in Atlanta on Dec. 2. Before the national championship can be a conversation and ahead of thoughts of the conference title game, Smart is zeroing in on another game in Atlanta — for what his staff is referring to as the state title game with the Yellow Jackets.

“Geographically, they’re close. They’re in your state. You are playing for something every time you play them. You’re playing for the state championship,” Smart said.

In Brent Key’s first season as head coach, Georgia Tech is 6-5 behind an offensive line Smart said is “dirty, nasty physical,” terming stopping the run against the Yellow Jackets “a day’s work.”

For the first time in five years, the Yellow Jackets are eligible for a bowl game.

“It’s a huge step in the program. It’s somewhere this place should be every year. The expectation should be to be in a bowl game,” Key said Monday.

Beating Smart would be icing on the cake for Key. The most recent Georgia loss in the Governor’s Cup was 28-27 in 2016. The Bulldogs have won five in a row, including the past three games by a combined score of 134-21.

An offensive lineman for Georgia Tech from 1997-2000, Key said his current players would know by the end of the week that he was on a Georgia Tech team that beat Georgia. Georgia Tech was 3-4 at one point this season but beat Syracuse last week to earn its sixth win and thus bowl eligibility.

“For rivalries to be rivalries, they have to be competitive football games,” Key said.

The Bulldogs, riding a 28-game winning streak while claiming consecutive national championships, have a few players who could miss the this trip to Atlanta.

Junior wide receiver Ladd McConkey injured his ankle two weeks ago against Ole Miss, but Smart said reports that he’ll need surgery aren’t accurate. He considers McConkey day-to-day and available for Georgia Tech.

McConkey has 26 receptions for 418 yards this season and also missed time with a back injury. Smart said wide receiver Rara Thomas, who left the Tennessee game last week with a right foot injury, is likely dealing with a bone bruise.

His status is uncertain for this week’s game.

Ga. Tech pummels Virginia for 305 yards rushing in rout

Haynes King ran for two touchdowns and threw for another score, propelling Georgia Tech to a 45-17 Atlantic Coast Conference victory at Virginia on Saturday in Charlottesville.

Jamal Haynes rushed for a career-high 119 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries as the Yellow Jackets rolled up 305 yards on the ground.

Dontae Smith contributed 113 yards rushing and receiving and carried for two touchdowns as Georgia Tech (5-4, 4-2 ACC) snapped a three-game losing streak to Virginia.

King completed 22 of 30 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown without an interception. The Texas A&M transfer also rushed for 83 yards on seven attempts.

The win was the second straight this season for the Yellow Jackets after following each of their previous wins with a defeat. Georgia Tech now has won five straight ACC road games, dating to last year.

Virginia (2-7, 1-4) lost starting quarterback Tony Muskett to a leg injury on the first series of the game. In relief, Anthony Colandrea completed 21 of 37 passes for 200 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.

Malik Washington had 11 receptions for 109 for Virginia, which is winless in six ACC home games in coach Tony Elliott’s two seasons.

After Colandrea threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Joshua Rawlings to give Virginia a 7-0 lead, the Yellow Jackets scored the next 24 points to take a lead that was never challenged.

In a dominant second quarter, the Yellow Jackets outgained the Cavaliers 205-64, with 169 of their yards coming on the ground.

Georgia Tech took the lead for good, 10-7, when King capped a 69-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run.

After the Yellow Jackets’ defense forced two straight three-and-outs, their offense responded with long touchdown runs.

After faking a jet sweep handoff, King split the Virginia defense with a 34-yard sprint straight up the middle of the field for a 17-7 lead.

Less than two minutes later, Smith scored on a 33-yard burst off tackle, hiking the Yellow Jackets’ advantage to 24-7.

On the opening series of the second half, King hit Eric Singleton Jr. in stride on a 58-yard touchdown bomb to stretch the edge to 31-10 and the rout was on.

Georgia Tech visits Virginia, tries to maintain momentum

In the past two weeks, Virginia and Georgia Tech have pulled off upsets of North Carolina, giving both Atlantic Coast Conference victors a needed spark.

Now it’s time for the conquerors of the Tar Heels to meet as Georgia Tech (4-4, 3-2) travels to Charlottesville to face Virginia (2-6, 1-3).

The Cavaliers were the first to upend North Carolina, toppling the then-undefeated and 10th-ranked Tar Heels 31-27 in Chapel Hill on Oct. 21.

Then last week, the Yellow Jackets rallied late to stun the then-No. 17 Tar Heels 46-42 as Haynes King threw four touchdown passes in Atlanta.

Georgia Tech also got 178 yards rushing from Dontae Smith, who helped the comeback from 11 points down in the fourth quarter with a 70-yard touchdown sprint.

King and Jamal Haynes added 90 and 80 yards, respectively, on the ground as the Yellow Jackets tallied 635 yards of total offense.

It was the second time in the month that Georgia Tech had upset a ranked foe. Tech also brought down then-No. 17 Miami, 23-20.

But the Yellow Jackets have been up and down all year, following each of their wins with a loss.

“Getting them to the point to where we’re able to play at 2 o’clock on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, where we’re able to play the same way, that’s the expectation,” Georgia Tech coach Brent Key said Tuesday.

Aside from the win over North Carolina, this has been a frustrating season for Virginia. The Cavaliers have shown improvement under second-year coach Tony Elliott but have lost four games by a combined 10 points.

One defeat came Saturday, a 29-26 overtime loss at Miami. The Cavaliers fell despite outgaining the Hurricanes 377-276, winning the turnover battle 2-1 and not committing a penalty.

“We’ve been in some games that come down to the last play, the last drive, and it’s about four or five plays. You never know when those plays are going to come,” Elliott said Tuesday. “You have to focus, play-in and play-out. It’s a mindset.”

Malik Washington, who has 12 receptions in each of the past two weeks, has been a revelation for Virginia. He is the runaway leader in the ACC in catches (68) and receiving yards (935).

No. 17 UNC seeks bounce-back effort vs. Georgia Tech

After absorbing an upset loss in their latest outing, the No. 17 North Carolina Tar Heels will aim to bounce back when they travel to Atlanta on Saturday to face Georgia Tech.

The Tar Heels (6-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) saw their unbeaten record blemished and their hopes of making the College Football Playoff diminished when they lost 31-27 to visiting Virginia last week.

North Carolina was just 4-of-15 on third- and fourth-down conversions in the defeat and allowed the Cavaliers a 37-minute to 23-minute edge in time of possession. The Tar Heels lost despite leading by as much as 10 points in the third quarter.

After falling behind with 8:51 to play, North Carolina saw its first three offensive series end in a punt, on failed fourth-down play and an interception.

On Monday, North Carolina offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey took some blame for the loss, and for not getting the ball into the hands of running back Omarion Hampton more often.

“I got to do a better job, just being honest with you, (about) making sure that gets done. That’s on me as coordinator, I’m responsible for it all,” Lindsey said. “Omarion is a great player and I think he ended up with 19 carries.

“Disappointed that we didn’t finish the game like we wanted to. We had some opportunities at the end.”

Indeed, while Hampton rushed 19 times for 112 yards, it felt as if he could have had even more yards on the ground as he averaged 5.9 yards per carry. He was never stopped for a loss by Virginia. North Carolina could have utilized other ball carriers, too. Other than Hampton’s production, the Heels ran 10 times for 31 yards.

“Why didn’t I step up and say, ‘Come on, maybe hand it to Omarion more?’ ” North Carolina coach Mack Brown said. “You hate to get involved with play selection during a game because I’ve done that, but that’s my job.”

Georgia Tech (3-4, 2-2) is also licking its wounds after taking a 38-23 home loss to Boston College last week. The Yellow Jackets had 452 yards of total offense, but they gave up 563 yards to the Eagles. And Georgia Tech quarterback Haynes King threw three interceptions — one of which was a pick-six and another that led to a Boston College scoring drive.

The Yellow Jackets led 23-17 heading into the fourth quarter before squandering their advantage and getting outscored 21-0 in the final period.

“We have to play better football in the fourth quarter and be in a better place to be able to sustain an edge and a toughness that we have to be able to in those situations,” Georgia Tech coach Brent Key said. “Looking forward to the game this weekend, we have a good opponent coming in.”

Should the Yellow Jackets win on Saturday, it would be the third straight year they have defeated a ranked North Carolina team. Georgia Tech leads the all-time series against the Tar Heels 32-22-3, having prevailed in four of the past five matchups.

Boston College runs over Georgia Tech for third straight victory

Thomas Castellanos and Kye Robichaux each rushed for a pair of touchdowns to lift visiting Boston College to a 38-23 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta.

Castellanos threw for 255 yards and rushed for 128 more, including a 12-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter and a 43-yard scamper midway into the fourth.

Robichaux scored from 2 and 3 yards out in the fourth quarter to highlight his 165-yard performance.

Amari Jackson returned an interception for a touchdown for the Eagles (4-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who returned from their bye week to win their third straight game. Boston College finished with 563 total yards, including 308 on the ground.

Quarterback Haynes King threw for a touchdown and rushed for another for the Yellow Jackets (3-4, 2-2). He totaled 150 yards on the ground, however he completed just 14 of 32 passes for 204 yards with three interceptions.

Castellanos converted a fourth down with an 11-yard run and then added a 12-yard rush for a touchdown. The latter rush capped a 13-play, 75-yard drive and staked Boston College to a 17-10 lead with 52 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

King scampered 71 yards for a touchdown early in the third before tossing a dart to a cutting Avery Boyd for a 19-yard score later in the quarter. Aidan Birr missed the extra point, however, keeping Georgia Tech’s lead at 23-17.

Robichaux powered his way over right guard and extended the ball over the goal line to give Boston College a 24-23 lead just 36 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Castellanos scored from 43 yards out on a fourth-down play with 8:44 left in the fourth quarter, and Robichaux added his second touchdown just 80 seconds later to seal the win.

Jamal Haynes capped a 10-play, 69-yard drive by rushing 16 yards for a touchdown to stake Georgia Tech to a 7-3 lead at 3:49 of the first quarter.

Boston College failed to respond offensively on its ensuing drive, however Jackson stepped in front of Yellow Jackets wideout Dominick Blaylock and pinned the ball to his hip for his first interception of the season. Jackson, a Georgia native, immediately scooted in for a touchdown.

Boston College, Georgia Tech come off bye weeks with momentum

Georgia Tech benefited from an egregious error by its opponent to rally to an improbable victory in its last game.

Fresh off a bye week, the Yellow Jackets (3-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) look to ratchet up the intensity in their return to the gridiron for a clash versus Boston College (3-3, 1-2) on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta.

Haynes King recorded his sixth multi-touchdown performance after passing for one score and rushing for another in Georgia Tech’s last-second 23-20 win over then-No. 17 Miami on Oct. 7.

While pleased with the result, Yellow Jackets coach Brent Key maintained Tuesday that he is looking ahead — not behind.

“We played for 60 minutes in the last game, but what’s your identity? Your identity is not what you did prior, it’s what you do next and how you can consistently do that,” Key said. “That’s why I talked to the team this week about having a work ethic versus a want ethic. Everyone wants to go do it, but we’ve got to put the work in during the week and then have the right frame of mind and the right mindset that we take the field with.”

Converted wideout Jamal Haynes leads Georgia Tech in rushing (409 yards) and averages a robust 5.7 yards per carry. He also has 12 catches for 112 yards.

Like the Yellow Jackets, Boston College is fresh off its bye week. The Eagles enter Saturday’s contest after posting 27-24 wins over both Virginia (Sept. 30) and Army (Oct. 7).

Sophomore Thomas Castellanos threw for two touchdowns versus the Cavaliers and rushed for four more against the Black Knights to give Boston College its longest winning streak since 2021.

“You have to imagine now teams are going to have to bring an extra guy in the box when you have a quarterback who can run the way he has run,” Eagles coach Jeff Hafley said. “But it’s not like we are playing wildcat. He can throw the ball.

“He can throw it from in the pocket, he can throw it on boot(leg)-type plays and he can sprint out. If you bring guys up, we have guys that can run by you. I think you are going to see him take off throwing the ball in the next weeks.”

Castellanos, a transfer from UCF and native of Waycross, Ga., leads the team in rushing (500 yards) and has seven scores on the ground.

Miami coach Mario Cristobal: ‘Wrong call’ lost game to Georgia Tech

Miami offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson tried to take responsibility Monday for calling the wrong play in the Hurricanes’ improbable loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday, but head coach Mario Cristobal was not having it.

“I made the wrong call,” Cristobal said at his weekly news conference. “I take full ownership in not taking a knee and giving them the opportunity to have a couple extra plays and preventing us from sealing the win.”

Miami (4-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) was leading 20-17 and could have taken a knee on third-and-10 from the Georgia Tech 30 with 26 seconds to play and run out the clock. The Yellow Jackets had no timeouts remaining.

Instead, Donald Chaney Jr. fumbled after a 4-yard gain, and the Yellow Jackets’ Kyle Kennard recovered at the 26. Four plays later, Haynes King’s 44-yard touchdown pass to Christian Leary with one second left gave visiting Georgia Tech a stunning 23-20 upset over then-No. 17 Miami.

“What we did at the end was the wrong decision. I called it,” Dawson said Monday. “… It was the wrong thing to do.”

Cristobal said the Hurricanes practice situations such as the victory formation.

“We didn’t do it Saturday, and we should have,” he said.

Earlier Monday, the coach of the now-No. 25 Hurricanes appeared as a guest on WQAM sports talk host Joe Rose’s radio show and didn’t shy away from the decision that’s been heavily criticized since Saturday night.

“There’s no way to rationalize it,” Cristobal said. “It’s the wrong decision. Should have kneeled it and didn’t do it.

“Like everything,” Cristobal told Rose, “we have a process. We got the first down and then after that, again, there’s no way to rationalize it. Just the wrong decision. Should have taken a knee, taken it out of the players’ hands.

“… We gave ourselves a chance at the end. But again, like I mentioned before, this entire program is based on accountability. We gave ourselves a chance to win and just gotta make that decision to take a knee. That’s it.”

Miami visits No. 12 North Carolina (5-0, 2-0) on Saturday.

No. 17 Miami fumbles, loses to Georgia Tech in last second

Haynes King’s 44-yard touchdown pass to Christian Leary with one second left led visiting Georgia Tech to a stunning 23-20 upset over No. 17 Miami on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (3-3, 2-1 ACC) capitalized four plays after Miami, with victory seemingly in hand, faced third-and-10 from the Georgia Tech 30 with 26 seconds to play.

However, Donald Chaney Jr. fumbled after a 4-yard gain, and Georgia Tech’s Kyle Kennard recovered at the 26. After an incompletion, King threw 30 yards to Malik Rutherford, and then spiked a snap to stop the clock with 10 seconds remaining, setting up the touchdown throw.

Miami fell to 4-1 and lost its ACC opener. The Hurricanes dominated in total yards (454-250), first downs (23-12) and time of possession (35:26-24:34). But they also finished with five turnovers to two for the Yellow Jackets.

King completed 12 of 25 passes for 151 yards and accounted for two touchdowns. He was intercepted twice. King also led the Yellow Jackets with 46 yards rushing.

The Yellow Jackets made a change at defensive coordinator this week, promoting Kevin Sherrer to the position full time. The move paid off as his unit responded by picking off Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke three times and forcing two fumbles.

Van Dyke went 24 of 36 passing for 288 yards and one touchdown. Chaney amassed 103 yards on 23 carries, and Xavier Restrepo had 12 catches for 123 yards.

Miami’s touchdowns came on a 22-yard pass to Riley Williams and a 3-yard run by Henry Parrish Jr. The latter score came with 9:55 left in the game to tie the score at 17-17, and Andres Borregales kicked his second field goal of the game, a 39-yarder to give the Hurricanes the lead with 6:23 left.

It marks the third time in coach Brent Key’s tenure that Georgia Tech has beaten a ranked opponent, and it’s the first time since 2019 that the Yellow Jackets have won in Miami.
