Hey, it worked for Hawaii.
Now Georgia Tech faces the likelihood that it will have two Division I-AA teams on its non-conference schedule. The Yellow Jackets open on Aug. 30 against Jacksonville State and are expected to announce another I-AA opponent late this week or early next week. If Tech is forced to schedule a second I-AA opponent, it is going to have to go 7-5 against a schedule that includes home games against FSU, Miami and Mississippi State, and on the road against Clemson, Virginia Tech and Georgia.
“It’s tough on our season-ticket holders but when somebody pulls out of a contract that late your options are really limited,” Wayne Hogan, Tech’s associate athletics director, said.
Amazingly, it looks like two or three other ACC schools will be doing the same thing. Way to pump up that conference SOS, fellas!
