Georgia Tech Vs. Maryland: Jackets 6-0, First Time Since Bobby Dodd Era

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 6-0 for the first time since 1966, Bobby Dodd's last season as White and Gold head coach. But but but what about the 1990 national title season, you say? Tech suffered a tie to go 5-0-1 before its sixth win, you see. It's the details.

That '66 team reached 9-0 before falling against the No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs and then the Florida Gators in the Orange Bowl. Tech concluded the year ranked No. 8.

Not to get even further ahead of ourselves, but the all-time Georgia Tech mark is the 1952 national champion team that went 12-0, including a Sugar Bowl victory over the Mississippi Rebels. See how far ahead of ourselves we're getting? This team hasn't even beaten Virginia yet.
