Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
Jake Fromm threw for 254 yards and a season-high four touchdowns to help No. 4 Georgia rout rival Georgia Tech 52-7 on Saturday in Atlanta.
The junior quarterback completed 14 of 29 passes before being lifted late in the third quarter. Fromm has combined to throw for 653 yards and 10 touchdowns in three games against the Yellow Jackets, all victories.
Georgia (11-1) will play LSU in the SEC Championship Game next week in Atlanta. Georgia Tech completed its first season under coach Geoff Collins with a 3-9 record.
Fromm distributed the ball to eight receivers and threw touchdown passes to Tyler Simmons, Dominick Blaylock, George Pickens and Charlie Woerner.
The Bulldogs moved the ball with relative ease, gaining 500 total yards, but lost three fumbles. D'Andre Swift was the top rusher with 73 yards on 10 carries, but fumbled twice. Swift was shaken up on his second fumble in the third quarter and did not return.
Georgia Tech managed just 139 total yards. Quarterback James Graham completed only 5 of 20 passes for 40 yards and one touchdown.
The Bulldogs scored three times in the first quarter. Rodrigo Blankenship opened with a 49-yard field goal and Georgia added a 2-yard scoring run by Brian Herrien and a 20-yard touchdown pass from Fromm to Woerner.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech couldn't even make a first down. The Yellow Jackets went three-and-out on their first six possessions, although the momentum changed when Blaylock fumbled a punt return after taking a shot from Georgia Tech's Nathan Cottrell, with Tyler Cooksey recovering for the Yellow Jackets.
Starting from the Georgia 17, Georgia Tech scored in four plays when Graham connected with Tyler Davis for a 6-yard touchdown, cutting the lead to 17-7.
Georgia turned it over again when Swift had the ball knocked loose by Quez Jackson and it was recovered by Georgia Tech's Justice Dingle. The Yellow Jackets pushed the ball to the 15 and Brenton King missed a 27-yard field goal. That was Georgia Tech's last scoring threat of the day.
Georgia scored quickly on its first possession of the third quarter when Fromm threw a 17-yard pass to Simmons to complete a three-play, 53-yard drive that gave the Bulldogs a 24-7 lead. He added two more touchdown tosses, a 41-yarder to Pickens and a 9-yarder to Blaylock.
