When the ACC announced its conference basketball schedule earlier this month, each game came with multiple dates. This, much like the held football game times and TV networks, is because of the uncertainty surrounding college athletics and COVID-19. Just a couple days before many teams begin their basketball seasons, however, the ACC set the official dates for each game. Georgia Tech will travel to Tallahassee for their first conference game against Florida State on December 15. Tech’s first game will be tomorrow against Georgia State, it tips off at 9 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on RSNs.
Just like last week, the ACC has put game time announcements on a six-day hold. That is almost certainly due to the potential impact that COVID-19 could have on some games. This is an unfortunate reality for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, who have not played a football game in almost a month due to COVID situations within the ACC. Let’s hope that everyone stays healthy! Tech will hopefully be able to play this Saturday against Duke, the game starts at 7 p.m. and can be seen on RSNs.
In preparation for the Tech basketball season, “Voice of the Yellow Jackets” Andy Demetra has been interviewing many players on the team. Recently, his interview with F Khalid Moore was released. During this “Tech Talk,” Demetra and Moore discussed the team’s training during the COVID-transformed offseason and how Moore has improved in recent months. Give it a watch!
Luther McCoy, a Creekside High School (Florida) defensive tackle, will be making his college commitment very soon. McCoy is rated as a three-star by both 247Sports (.8416 composite) and Rivals (5.5 rating). Defensive tackle is a position of need in the 2021 class for Geoff Collins and the Jackets, as none were signed in 2020 and only one (Zeek Biggers) is committed for 2021.
This week @GeorgiaTechFB won't play UGa, snapping Tech's longest continuously played series. The teams had met every year since 1925.— Andy Demetra + (@AndyDemetra) November 23, 2020
Tech's new longest continuously played series? Duke... whom the Jackets (knock on wood) play Saturday. They've met every year since 1933.
Good on Duke for stepping up. Let’s hope that the game is played this weekend for the sake of historical continuity (and not for who can turn the ball over the most)!
