A frustrating loss to Pittsburgh last weekend marked Georgia Tech’s ACC opener.
Now the Yellow Jackets (1-2) must face the No. 3 Clemson Tigers (No. 2 in the coaches poll). The Tigers have become a national powerhouse and feature one of the all-time great defensive lines in college football.
That’s probably not good news for a team that lives by its run game.
Here is some important information regarding how to follow the action:
