Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Done with Tech by December

Wednesday May 1, 2013

The 2013 football game at Georgia Tech occupies its traditional spot at the end of Georgia’s regular season on November 30th. But basketball fans used to seeing the Tech game played in December and beyond will get to move the clean old-fashioned hate up a couple of weeks this year.

Marc Weiszer reports that the 2013-14 men’s basketball game against Georgia Tech in Athens will be on Friday November 15th. As Weiszer notes, it’s the Friday before the football game at Auburn. It’s very close to the beginning of the season which usually tips off in the first week of November, but Weiszer notes that Greg McGarity doesn’t expect the Tech game to be the season opener. The teams last met in November on Nov. 27 2002, an 83-77 Tech win. Of course the following Saturday was a much happier day for Georgia fans.

We’ve also learned that the women’s game against Tech will likely be on Sunday November 24th, the day after the home football game against Kentucky. This game was usually an early December contest, recently played the day after the SEC football championship game. Andy Landers’ squads are a little more used to big home games in November, hosting teams like TCU, Texas, Oklahoma and Rutgers in recent years.
