Providing Historical Perspective on the Alabama Game

Alabama leads the all-time series with Georgia by a comfortable 35-25-4 margin, but, since 1965, the series is even at 7-7.

Saturday night's win in Tuscaloosa gave the Bulldogs their third straight win over the Crimson Tide. Georgia had not beaten 'Bama three times in a row since posting a five-game winning streak over the Red Elephants between 1910 and 1916.

The following fact helps to put the foregoing statistic into context: Georgia beat 'Bama for the fourth straight time on October 18, 1913. Just 37 days earlier, Paul William Bryant had been born.

Mark Richt is the first Georgia head coach to have begun his career against Alabama with a 3-0 record since W.A. Cunningham, who coached the Red and Black from 1910 to 1919.

Go 'Dawgs!
