We aren’t in Waffle House territory anymore.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech will be playing football in the Carrier Dome for the first time in history tomorrow, with the Jackets having a chance at being the first win in a newly-renovated Carrier Dome. I personally like Geoff Collins & co.’s chances against the Orange, as their offense has been miserable for the first two games. If Tech does take a victory back to the #404, I hope Jeff Sims signs the locker room wall at the Dome.

Most people know that Jahmyr Gibbs was one of the highest rated high school recruits to ever sign with Georgia Tech. However, what many people may have forgotten is that Gibbs originally committed to the Jackets as a low three-star that was not coveted by the top programs. Despite Gibbs’ initially low ranking, RB coach Tashard Choice and the rest of the staff were convinced Gibbs would be a star. That bet paid off, as we saw flashes of Gibbs potential last weekend against UCF. Check out the article above for a great story on Gibbs’ recruitment to the Flats.

After being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016 and playing two seasons for the team, former Tech CB D.J. White has bounced around multiple practice squads in the NFL. Before signing for a second time with the Atlanta Falcons, White was waived by the Dallas Cowboys in this past April. For his career, White has 14 tackles and an interception. Congratulations, D.J.!

Well, this wasn’t the best opener for the Georgia Tech volleyball team. The Jackets started the match off by losing the first two sets, before clawing back to win the next two, and ultimately lost the match in the fifth. Even though the team started slow, they played much better in the third and fourth sets (25-19 and 25-18) and only lost by two points in the fifth (16-14). There’s not much time to turn it around as the Jackets will face Miami again tonight at 6 p.m. ET. The game can be seen on ACCNX.

Here are the team captains for tomorrow’s game. As of 10:15 on Thursday, the “Above the Line” chart has still not been released. Let’s get ready for tomorrow!
