Dawgs and Virginia Tech like old rivals

ATLANTA – Until Saturday night, Georgia and Virginia Tech hadn't played since 1932.

The teams looked, though, like old rivals. Bitter old rivals. The Bulldogs and Hokies combined for four personal fouls in the first half and several other times players had to be separated when no flags were thrown.

The most costly foul of the first two quarters was called against Georgia senior linebacker Tony Taylor, who was flagged after stopping Branden Ore for a short gain in the first quarter. The penalty gave Virginia Tech a first-and-goal from the 6-yard line and led to the Hokies' first touchdown.

Georgia entered the game the sixth-most penalized team in the SEC.
