It was just Tennessee Tech, so you don’t want to read too much into it, but this one largely went the way it was supposed to go. Even with a couple of key players absent from the lineup, Georgia scored on its first five drives, the defense pitched a shutout, and the first team didn’t have to spend 60 minutes on the field.
Due to the combination of those factors, the Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 87. With 113 games under his belt, Mark Richt now trails Vince Dooley by 114 victories.
Despite his teams’ recent struggles, Mark Richt has the best career record after 113 games of any coach in Georgia Bulldogs history. His all-time .770 winning percentage (87-26) surpasses Vince Dooley’s .686 (75-33-5) and Wally Butts’s .730 (81-29-3) after the same number of games as the head man in the Classic City.
