The hour is upon us. The Jackets are 10-2, victors over Virginia Tech, Miami, Clemson, and georgia. Tonight, they put it all on the line when they take on the #4 ranked Florida State Seminoles and Heisman Trophy Winner Jameis Winston. The Seminoles are riding a 28 win streak, which started two years ago in this very stadium against this very team. It has been a year of poetic justice for head coach Paul Johnson, quarterback Justin Thomas, and the rest of the Yellow Jacket family. Can they do it again?

Weather: It might be a soggy tailgate, but the rain should more or less be starting to taper off by around 5pm. I’m no weatherman, of course, but that’s what it looks like. The good news is that the rain should be almost completely gone by kickoff at 8pm! Temperatures will be in the mid 50s during the day, and will cool off to around 53 at kickoff. It’ll be ~47 degrees by the time the game is over, with winds around 10mph. This is the longest paragraph I think I’ve ever written about weather.
It’s time for the Jackets’ biggest game since the final game of the 1990 season. State Champs, ACC Coastal Champs - can we add a third title to the list tonight? GO JACKETS! STING THE NOLES!
