So some beat writers provide their thoughts on ACC teams. For the Yellow Jackets, the offensive line will be crucial to the team’s success, as the article points out. Also, without Georgia on the schedule, Clemson will more than likely be the team’s archrival this season. What an upset that would be if Tech could pull off its first victory against the Tigers in over five years. First things first, they’ll have to get by UCF this weekend.

Speaking of UCF, this article puts the Knights on upset alert. Assuming the Yellow Jackets consistently play their best game, I don’t think it’s entirely impossible for them to pull off the upset. Keeping the game close is one thing, winning it would be a major statement for Tech.

It’s important to recognize players who contribute to a team’s success. And it doesn’t always have to be players on the field, as the article points out. In his video conference, Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins recognized various players whose contributions were key to the Yellow Jackets victory over Florida State last week. Some of those players served in motivational roles, some on the developmental team.

On Saturday the 19th of September, the Yellow Jackets will play their first home game of the 2020 season. There will be several new features at Bobby Dodd Stadium that will enhance the game experience. Several of these measures will be related to safety precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Attendance is going to be capped to 20 percent of stadium capacity. Also something new will be the sale of alcohol.

In case you missed Tech athletic directory Todd Stansbury’s podcast, this article links to it. The topics include Stansbury’s thoughts about the Yellow Jackets victory in their season opener, and some of the features Tech will roll out in its home opener this weekend.
