Handle the blitz
Georgia all owed just one sack against the team that leads the nation in sacks. That came on the first drive. "That was pretty impressive by our linemen and our backs, and Matthew certainly threw a couple away that saved a few sacks," Richt said. On the flip side, the Bulldogs sacked the various Yellow Jacket quarterbacks five times.
Clamp down on Choice
Choice had 134 yards and one touchdown but never broke Georgia's back. Richt alluded to the fact earlier in the week that the Bulldogs could survive a 100-yard rushing game by Choice as long as it didn't get beat in any other area of the game, and it didn't. Georgia Tech threw for 179 yards and two interceptions.
Keep special teams even
Boy, did the Bulldogs get lucky here. A different bounce here or there and Georgia Tech might have scored two touchdowns on special teams. Georgia got those bounces, though, and held onto the ball both times.
