Not a lot of support from the Flats last week as nearly 40 percent called for a North Carolina win ... despite a 10-year domination of the Tar Heels at Bobby Dodd. Tsk. Tsk.
The Jackets travel to Starksville, Miss., to face Mississippi State squad that was hammered last season 38-7 in Atlanta.
Georgia Tech piled on 438 yards on the ground -- its most in 30 years -- in last year's win over the Bulldogs. Eventual ACC Player of the Year Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 141 yards on nine carries, including a school record 88-yard TD.
Coach Dan Mullen faces the Jackets for the first time in as Mississippi State's head coach. Bulldogs' leading rusher Anthony Dixon, who is averaging more than 100-yards-per game, had 94 yards on 13 carries in last year's game.
Georgia Tech is 3-0 against Mississippi State.
