Despite having two separate, storied, long successful programs, the Michigan Wolverines and Georgia Bulldogs have only faced off twice.

The first meeting took place on October 5, 1957, a game which Michigan won 26-0 at home. Michigan quarterback Stan Noskin completed 5/9 passes for 80 yards, but his biggest contribution was when he ran 3 times for 9 yards and 2 touchdowns. Running back Mike Shatusky ran 5 times for 19 yards and 1 touchdown.

The second meeting also took place in Ann Arbor, this one on October 2, 1965. Backup running back Dennis Sirosky ran 5 times for 12 yards and 1 touchdown, the only score for the Wolverines. Quarterback Dick Vidmer threw 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in the 15-7 loss.

2021 Michigan vs. Georgia Preview: Roster Notes

As two nationally prominent schools, Michigan and Georgia unsurprisingly have quite a few battles on the recruiting front. Perhaps there aren’t many true head-to-head battles, but plenty of players get offered by both schools. Michigan tries to dip into Georgia way more than Georgia tries to dip into the state of Michigan, so Michigan loses plenty of those battles, too.

Here is a list of Georgia players that Michigan pursued out of high school:

  • OLB Robert Beal, Jr.
  • WR Dominick Blaylock
  • TE Brock Bowers
  • RB Lovasea Carroll
  • S Lewis Cine
  • QB J.T. Daniels
  • DT Jordan Davis
  • TE Arik Gilbert
  • TE Ryland Goede
  • DT Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins
  • WR Kearis Jackson
  • WR Jaylen Johnson
  • CB Kamari Lassiter
  • OL Warren McClendon
  • RB Kenny McIntosh
  • RB Kendall Milton
  • OL Micah Morris
  • WR George Pickens
  • CB William Poole
  • OL Tate Ratledge
  • CB Kelee Ringo
  • WR Justin Robinson
  • WR Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint
  • OL Jamaree Salyer
  • OL Justin Shaffer
  • CB Christopher Smith
  • LB Nolan Smith
  • S Ameer Speed
  • OL Xavier Truss
  • QB Brock Vandagriff
  • LB Quay Walker
  • TE Darnell Washington

The Bulldogs have zero players on their roster from the state of Michigan, but freshman safety Matthew Helow is the younger brother of Michigan linebackers coach George Helow.

On the flip side, Michigan has several players from the state of Georgia, including . . .

  • Michael Barrett – LB – Valdosta (GA) Lowndes
  • Chris Hinton, Jr. – DT – Johns Creek (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian
  • Trente Jones – OT – Loganville (GA) Grayson
  • Alexander Lidback – LB – Alpharetta (GA) Alpharetta
  • Jalen Perry – CB – Dacula (GA) Dacula
  • D.J. Turner II – CB – Suwanee (GA) and transferred to IMG Academy
  • William Wagner – LS – Alpharetta (GA) Alpharetta
