Georgia Tech is taking their talents to South Beach to take on Mississippi State in the Capital One Orange Bowl. The game will take place New Year's Eve at Sun Life Stadium.

As you all know, Georgia Tech finished the season 10-3 after a heartbreaking loss against a very good Florida State team in the ACC Championship Game.

The Yellow Jackets goes into the bowl game ranked No. 10 in the AP poll and No. 9 in the Coaches.

The Bulldogs started off the season with nine straight wins before facing Alabama in Tuscaloosa. A loss there and one in the Egg Bowl in Oxford knocked them out of the College Football Playoff talks.

Mississippi State goes into the bowl game ranked No. 8 in the AP and Coaches polls.
