Georgia is the Fiesta Bowl Team of the Week

DALLAS, TX - With their 30-24 win at No. 7 Georgia Tech, the Georgia Bulldogs (7-5) are the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week for games of the weekend of Nov. 28, as chosen by the board of the Football Writers Association of America.

Washaun Ealy (183 yards) and Caleb King (166) combined to run for 349 yards and King scored twice while the Bulldogs limited Georgia Tech to 205 rushing yards, 109 below its season average. It was the first time since 2004 that Georgia had a pair of 100-yard rushers in the same game.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-3 halftime lead and held off a late rally to complete the upset and send Georgia Tech stumbling into the ACC championship game. The win also avenged last season's 45-42 loss to the Yellow Jackets in Athens.

"I know we've got some areas to improve in," Georgia coach Mark Richt said after the game. "Right now, I'm just going to enjoy this victory."
