Georgia Tech has won four of its past five games and clings to a chance to win the ACC’s Coastal Division title, making the game against Miami another critical one for the Yellow Jackets.
By the time Tech (5-4, 3-3 ACC) kicks off against Miami (5-4, 2-3), or shortly after, the Jackets may know that they must win to avoid elimination in the race for the division.
Pittsburgh leads the division with a 4-1 ACC record. If the Panthers defeat Virginia Tech in a game with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff, a Jackets loss would end their chances of playing for the ACC title in Charlotte on Dec. 1.
Yet, if Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech win tomorrow, four Coastal teams would have four ACC victories: Pitt, Virginia, and the two Techs.
