This Day in Georgia History

November 29, 1980

UGA Defeated Tech

Led by freshman phenom Herschel Walker’s 205 yards rushing and three touchdowns, the Georgia Bulldogs vanquished arch rival Georgia Tech 38-20 to complete an undefeated season. Walker not only led the team to victory, but also broke the national single season rushing record when he blasted up the middle, powering over several defenders along the way, on a 65-yard touchdown run which iced Georgia’s victory. Now the only thing standing in the way of a national championship for the Bulldogs was a January 1 clash with Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl.
