Georgia Tech-Minnesota: TV, online, radio information

This game for Georgia Tech marks several first-time occurrences and last-time occurrences.

Key among the “lasts” is that this will be the last game coached at Tech by Paul Johnson. Also, the senior class will play its final game, including a possible 12 starters. For key senior starters are quarterback TaQuon Marshall, A-backs Clinton Lynch and Qua Searcy and wide receiver Brad Stewart.

Speaking of the A-back, with Johnson leaving and Geoff Collins already on the job as Johnson’s successor, terminology such as the A-back and B-back likely will make their final occurrences, too. 

Among the first occurrences: This is Tech’s first game time in the Quick Lane Bowl, which is played at the home of the Detroit Lions. This is Tech’s first football game in Detroit – and the first in Michigan since a regular-season victory against Michigan State on Sept. 23, 1972.

This also is Tech’s first game against Minnesota. Excluding Maryland, once a longtime member of the ACC, Tech is 8-7 against teams in today’s Big Ten.
