Georgia Tech has another opportunity next week to tout its football facilities.

After playing the Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday and before flying to London to play the Cincinnati Bengals, the Los Angeles Rams will stay in Atlanta and practice at Tech.

Rams coach and Marist School grad Sean McVay shared that information Wednesday on a conference call with Atlanta media. A Tech spokesman confirmed the Rams' plans to practice on campus.

McVay said that the team will stay on the East Coast to reduce travel and to have their bodies more adjusted to London time. The Rams play the Bengals in London on Oct. 27 as part of the NFL’s international series.

“Being in Atlanta is a nice place, and then we’ll practice over at Georgia Tech for a couple of days,” McVay said.

It will be the second time this calendar year that Tech will have been host to a prominent NFL team. During Super Bowl week, the New England Patriots made Tech’s Brock Football Facility its practice home before going on to defeat the Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
