The University of Georgia's sports teams are called the Bulldogs, and they participate in the NCAA's Division I FBS as a member of the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference. Since the 1997-1998 season, UGA has ten top ten rankings in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Director's Cup, a numerical ranking based on the success of universities in all varsity sports. The University of Georgia has won national championships in football, women's gymnastics, baseball, tennis, golf, women's swimming and diving, and women's equestrian.
The Bulldogs most historic rivalry is with Auburn, referred to as the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry in reference to the first football game played between the two teams in 1892 and the more than one hundred meetings since. For the vast majority of the 20th century, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were unquestionably UGA's biggest rival, the two schools are only 70 miles apart. However, the 1970s, '80s and '90s witnessed a growing rivalry with the Florida Gators that many would say is currently UGA's fiercest. Georgia leads the series, known widely as The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, with an all-time record of 51-38-2 against the Gators. Mark Richt is the current head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs.
