it is beleived to have been played  101 times. it alternates of course between hotlanta and athens. the 101 times are accordign to georgia tehc accordign to georgia its only been played 99 times. this mighthave to do with georgia lossing in the two games they dont count in 1943 and 1944. the rivalry is known as clean old fashioned hate. georgia leads the series 56-38-5.  tech has 4 national championships compared to georgia who has only 2. georgia has won the last 7 meetings. ga tech won 8 in a row from 1949-1956. they first played on  november 4th 1893. ga tech known then as the  blacksmiths won 28-6. the rivalry was born the next day whn an athens newpaper man said heterogeneous collection of Atlanta residents - a United States Army surgeon, a medical student, a lawyer, and an insurance agent among them, with here and there a student of Georgia's School of Technology thrown in to give the mixture a Technological flavor." Hence, the sports rivalry was born. the onlybreak was in 1917 during the war. the game renewed play in 1932. tech and georgia eventually split apart except for 1 day when its on again.

my prediction is georgia 35 ga tech-24
