Yellow Jackets to play in Chick-Fil-A Bowl

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech has been selected as the ACC representative in the Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta.

The selection of Georgia Tech will be officially announced at a news conference today at the school.

Georgia Tech is 9-3 following a 45-42 win over Georgia last Saturday and will receive its first invitation since 2000 to its hometown Chick-fil-A Bowl at the Georgia Dome.

Chick-fil-A president Gary Stokan said Georgia Tech's "great TV football brand" and "passionate fan base" make the team a good fit for the game.

Stokan's committee also considered Florida State and the loser of Saturday's Virginia Tech-Boston College ACC championship game.

patriciathomas, you don't

patriciathomas, you don't know what you're talking about. One game won in the past eight years does not intelligently allow for a ridiculous blanket statement like that! LOL! I'm certainly giving the Jackets their due this past game. It was a good game for them and I, personally, love the Triple Option. Anyway, enough time wasted on your comment...the Jacket fans would be crazy to NOT go to this game! The Chick-Fil-A Bowl is one of the absolute best bowls out there, in terms of money, talent, and a great atmosphere! I wish they'd elevate that bowl to replace one of the other bowls, like the Outback Bowl. If there's a GT fan reading this, you owe it to yourself and your family to go to this game.
