After three tough losses in a row, Georgia Tech looks to right the ship in a tough environment. They travel to take on their rivals Clemson in Death Valley, still seeking their first win in ACC play. The Yellow Jackets have struggled in recent trips to Clemson, losing three in a row by an average of 18 points per game. The trip comes on the heels of Clemson's wet and wild 24-22 win over Notre Dame, which saw the Tigers brave the elements to outlast the Irish which Georgia Tech fell to a few weeks prior.
Last year, the Yellow Jackets rode two defensive touchdowns to a huge 28-6 home victory over the Tigers. Can they win a second straight and break their losing streak in Death Valley?
