Georgia Tech’s athletic director is working the phones trying to find an opponent to schedule for a twelfth regular season game. Why?
Tech is 5-5 going into its final scheduled regular-season game against Georgia Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium. A win secures bowl eligibility. If Tech were to lose the game, it would be in limbo regarding its bowl status. The Yellow Jackets could conceivably receive a bowl invitation at 5-6, but only if there weren’t enough bowl-eligible teams, which may not be known until December 2.
I do hope the genius gets asked about that in his pre-game presser this week.
