This fall, Georgia will celebrate homecoming by welcoming the New Mexico State Aggies to Athens on November 5th. Traditionally, the Dawgs have taken care of their homecoming opponent easily. Last fall was no exception, as the Dawgs shutout the Vanderbilt Commodores 43-0. Aaron Murray threw for 287 yards and hooked up with AJ Green and Kris Durham on touchdown passes. It was a banner day for the Georgia defense, holding the Commodores to 140 yards and forcing 2 turnovers.
All-time, the Dawgs sport a 70-17-2 record on Homecoming. Vanderbilt has been Georgia’s most common homecoming opponent, serving that role 22 times. Georgia has won 19 of those games. The Dawgs have won their last two homecoming games by shutout, as they also shutout Tennessee Tech 38-0 in 2009. Mark Richt has a 9-1 record in homecoming games and the Dawgs have not lost on homecoming since 2006.
