Study Hall: Georgia 41, Georgia Tech 34

Advanced stats from Georgia's 41-34 comeback win over Georgia Tech.

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Just like Alabama-Auburn, this one was decided, in part, by the ability to finish drives. Georgia Tech was only marginally effective in doing so and allowed Georgia to hang around after a horrific start.

Trips inside 40: Tech 8, Georgia 7
Points Per Trip: Georgia 5.9, Tech 4.3

Otherwise, Tech should have won this game. The Yellow Jackets were making big plays in the passing game, held up on passing downs, and did well in the field position battle. But turnovers and missed opportunities, turnovers and missed opportunities...
