Is Georgia Tech Really Georgia Football's Biggest Rival?

It's Florida week for Georgia football, but  UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity had another team on his mind Tuesday.

Midtown Patch reports that McGarity told  AM-790 The Zone that the University of Georgia considers Georgia Tech to be its biggest rival.

“I say Georgia Tech,” McGarity said on Mayhem in the AM, while admitting that some Bulldog fans might put schools such as Florida, Auburn and Tennessee ahead of the Jackets. “Georgia Tech has been the biggest rival for the University of Georgia for I’m not sure how long. … You can take your pick, but I don’t think there’s any question that the biggest rivalry for all Georgia fans is the Georgia Tech rivalry.”

For more of what McGarity said, see the full story on Midtown Patch.
