Among other factors, the spread takes into account the Bulldogs’ defeating their FBS opponents by an average of 38.7-7.6, a 31.1-point difference, and Tech’s five-game losing streak, including its 55-0 loss to No. 8 Notre Dame on Saturday.
Tech fans might take a small consolation in the fact that it was not Georgia’s largest spread of the season. The Bulldogs took the field against Missouri Nov. 6 as 40.5-point favorites. They were also 36-point favorites against Vanderbilt Sept. 25. Georgia beat the Tigers 43-6 and the Commodores 62-0.
