Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo tied former All-American Jake Scott for the most interceptions in UGA history with 16.

Georgia Bulldogs safety Bacarri Rambo's interception on Saturday during the Dawgs' 42-10 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets tied him with Jake Scott for the most in program history. Scott, who was an All-American at UGA before going on to win a Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl VII, had been alone in first with 16 interceptions since 1969.

Rambo isn't lucky to be where he is, either. He's known among his teammates for his tenacious work ethic and attention to detail. According to teammate Sanders Commings:

"I’ll tell you one thing: It’s not luck," Commings said. "He’s a very hard worker, and with hard work comes great opportunity, and in football, great plays. He definitely puts in the hours, puts in the weeks, puts in the years, everything. He puts in the blood, sweat and tears. That’s why he makes those plays on Saturdays."

Aside from his interception, Rambo had eight tackles and forced two fumbles against the Yellow Jackets. He single-handedly ruined what would probably have been two scoring drives by Georgia Tech in the first quarter. Had they gone on to score touchdowns, the game would not have gotten out of hand the way it did.

Through eight games this season, Rambo has 59 tackles and three interceptions.
