Beno and Johnson, both juniors, played in all 13 games for the Yellow Jackets this season. Johnson led the team with 87 tackles. He also notched a sack, a fumble recovery, an interception, and a touchdown. Golden, meanwhile, averaged 12.8 yards per punt return, and 29 yards per kick return. Golden also returned to kicks for touchdowns.

Georgia Tech finished its season at 6-7 and will face Southern California in the Sun Bowl on New Year's Eve.
