ATHENS, Ga. -- There's a reason Georgia versus Georgia Tech is scheduled for the final game of the regular season each year.

The field crew has a lot of work to do after the game, especially if the visiting team wins.

That was the case at Sanford Stadium on Saturday as Georgia Tech (8-4) rallied down 13 points, and Qua Searcy ran for a 6-yard touchdown to tie the game with seconds left. The extra point clinched a 28-27 win over Georgia (7-5).

The Yellow Jackets won back-to-back games between the hedges, their last in 2014. Georgia won on the road last season at Bobby Dodd Stadium, and they stuck the team's flag in the field to celebrate.

So when Brant Mitchell intercepted Georgia's Hail Mary attempt to end the game, the Jackets rushed the field, and stuck their flag right in the middle of the G at midfield.


Senior Patrick Gamble had been waiting to do that since witnessing Georgia's celebration at Bobby Dodd last year, and he hopes it haunts Georgia like it haunted him.
