In 2010, Clemson also won both games by scores of 15-5 (in Athens) and 14-6 (in Clemson). Therefore, the Tigers have won four games in a row in the series after the Bulldogs had won the previous four meetings. The two teams have not split their season series since the 2006 campaign.


The Bulldogs hold a 68-43 advantage in games played at Georgia. Jack Leggett has a 23-16 record against Georgia as Clemson’s head coach, including a 9-13 record at Foley Field. Leggett was also 3-12 against the Bulldogs as Western Carolina’s head coach, meaning he is 26-28 all-time against Georgia.
