UGA seniors look for sweep of Yellow Jackets

A win for the Bulldogs against rival Georgia Tech this Saturday would mean a four-game career sweep for Georgia's seniors. It would also keep Georgia in the running for the national championship.

The Georgia Bulldogs are sitting in plum position in the BCS standings to play for a national championship if they can find a way to beat Alabama in the SEC Championship Game in two weeks. While that may occupy the talking heads on the studio shows, it's not lost on the players the importance of beating rival Georgia Tech this weekend, a feat which would mean a four-game career sweep over the Yellow Jackets:

Sanders Commings understood how important it is from back home in Augusta.

"There's a mixture of the fans down there," the fifth-year senior cornerback said. "There's some Georgia fans, there's some Georgia Tech fans. Excluding my redshirt year being undefeated against those guys will be a great feeling."

A former teammate of Robinson's sent the linebacker a text last week.

"Don't lose that last one," was the message from former Bulldogs defensive end Rod Battle, whose senior day was ruined in 2009 with a 34-27 loss to Kentucky. "You'll live with it for the rest of your life."

Georgia last lost to Georgia Tech in the 2008 season, the redshirt freshman year for several players on Georgia's roster. It was Paul Johnson's first season as the head coach of the Yellow Jackets.
