It has not been a glorious history for the Yellow Jackets. Tech is 1-12-1 in those games, with losses in the past 11. Of the 11 defeats, nine have been by 17 points or more.
The one win, though, rates among the most cherished in Tech history, a 7-6 win over No. 1 Alabama at Grant Field. Mike McNames scored Tech’s only touchdown and made a game-saving tackle. The win broke a four-game losing streak to the Tide. Coach Bobby Dodd called it his greatest victory.
