A momentum-changing score late in the second quarter and halftime adjustments that enabled the more talented team to prevail paved the way for the Georgia Bulldogs’ 45-14 triumph over the Georgia Southern Eagles, putting us in a position to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch for the tenth time this season.

The Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 116, placing Mark Richt a mere 85 wins behind Vince Dooley’s school record. 155 games into his career in the Classic City, Coach Richt has more wins (116), fewer losses (39), and a better winning percentage (.748) than either of his long-serving predecessors in Athens.

After an equal number of games as head coach of the Bulldogs, Wally Butts was 103-45-7 (.687) following a 1953 win over the Tulane Green Wave and Vince Dooley was 103-47-5 (.681) after a 1977 loss to the Florida Gators.
