Is this the worst defeat in our history?

Clemson last year - at Grant Field - was 73-7…I was there, unfortunately. Worse, my daughter was too and it was embarrassing to her to be a Tech fan afterwards (teenager).
I will add that this is actually a crucial part of the damage that Collins’ reign has done to the younger fans that many of us have been raising. It never was this bad in terms of blow out losses in such a short time - UNTIL GEOFF COLLINS!

According to Ken and the AJC:

Collins owns two of the three most lopsided losses in Tech history going back at least to the start of the Bobby Dodd era (1945) – the Jackets' 73-7 loss to Clemson last year and Saturday's defeat. By margin of victory, it tied Tech's 69-14 loss to Notre Dame in 1977, which before the start of the Collins era was the largest margin of defeat in the team's modern era.

73-7 is the worst loss since 1970.
55-0 is the biggest road shutout since 1970.
45-0 is the biggest home shutout in since 1970.
They are 3 of the 6 worst losses at GT since 1970.

Another fun stat. That is 7 straight games that the defense has given up 480+ yds. Only 4 teams have had a longer streak than that
2015 Kansas, 2018 Oregon St, 2019 Texas Tech, 2007 UTEP.

3 teams are tied with GT right now with 7 in a row - 2017 ULM, 2017 ECU, 2018 UConn
