Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate
Rival Team: Georgia Bulldogs
Georgia Tech and Georgia have a heated rivalry as the schools are separated by only 70 miles, but have very different cultures and academics. Georgia Tech is a science and technology research university while Georgia is a liberal arts research university. The schools first met in 1893 when Yellow Jackets beat the Bulldogs 28-6. However, Georgia leads the all-time series 64-40-5. If you can only make it to one Georgia Tech football game, this one is a must see.
Georgia Tech vs Clemson
Rival Team: Clemson Tigers
The Tigers and Yellow Jackets rivalry began in 1898 when Clemson shut out Georgia Tech 23-0. Since then Tech has owned the rivalry racking up a 50-27-2 record against the Tigers. The two schools have met every year since 1983, often deciding the ACC champion. The Yellow Jackets will look to extend their current winning streak this season when the two schools meet in Clemson.
Georgia Tech vs Virginia Tech
Rival Team: Virginia Tech Hokies
The two teams first met in 1990 when Georgia Tech edged out Virginia Tech 6-3. However, the rivalry did not become a regular thing until the Hokies joined the ACC in 2004. The Hokies and Yellow Jackets have traded off winning the ACC Coastal Division since then further fueling this budding rivalry.
Georgia Tech vs Notre Dame
Rival Team: Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Thie rivalry between Georgia Tech and Notre Dame is more known for poor behavior off the field than the games themselves. However, one of the most famous meetings between these two schools happened in 1980 when a 3-3 tie at Bobby Dodd Stadium ended the Fighting Irish’s national championship hope. The Yellow Jackets trail the all-time series 27-6-1 but hope to change that in the near future.
