Georgia's senior safety went out with a bang on Saturday at Sanford Stadium, forcing two turnovers in the Bulldogs' 42-10 win over Georgia Tech.

Georgia Bulldogs senior safety Bacarri Rambo had an impressive final home game on Saturday, creating two turnovers in the Bulldogs' 42-10 victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Both turnovers came with Georgia Tech driving deep in Georgia territory. In the first quarter, Rambo stripped the ball from Yellow Jackets running back Robert Godhigh at the Bulldogs' 1-yard line, recovered it and returned it to midfield. That allowed Georgia to turn what likely would have been a 7-7 game into fast 14-0 start. Rambo told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Tim Tucker that his main goal was just to keep Tech out of the end zone:

"I was just trying to keep them from scoring. That was my philosophy - we don't want them to score. I had a chance to get a good strip. I just tried to make a play, and it happened."

In the second quarter, Rambo protected Georgia's 21-3 lead by intercepting Vad Lee's pass at the Bulldogs' 5-yard line and returning it 27 yards to the Georgia 32, which set the stage for yet another Bulldogs score.

Rambo finished with eight tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception. The pick allowed him to tie Georgia legend Jake Scott atop the school's all-time list for career interceptions with 16.
