Georgia Tech vs. Georgia: Tevin Washington hoping for different result vs. Bulldogs

Tevin Washington was a redshirt freshman when the Yellow Jackets last beat the Bulldogs, and he's come up short in each of the last two years.

Tevin Washington is hoping to have a breakout game against the Georgia Bulldogs, reports Dog Bytes. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' quarterback has been involved in two games against the Bulldogs, in which he threw for a combined 135 yards and rushed for 114 more. Georgia game out on top in both games. He's doing a bit better than that in his senior year, averaging 95 yards passing and 54 yards on the ground.

When asked about the games, he implied that the team takes every game seriously, but noted that it was impossible not to consider Saturday's game differently:

"You always want to be the best at what you do but I'm just trying to go out there and play football. Our mindset is always that the next game is the biggest game of the year and in this case, it is the biggest game of the year - it's Georgia."

Of the 106 meetings between the two teams, the Yellow Jackets have won only 39. They last won in 2008, and Washington will undoubtedly be key to that effort. He spent some of the season on the bench in favor of backup Vad Lee, but he took the vast majority of snaps as the Yellow Jackets picked up wins in two of their last three games. History favors the Bulldogs, but if Washington and the Tech offense can find a rhythm early they're plenty capable of the upset.
