Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech: Charles Perkins To Start At B-Back

Charles Perkins will start at B-back for Georgia Tech in the season opener against Virginia Tech. This will be Perkins' first career start when the Yellow Jackets face the Hokies on Monday. The depth chart was released on Friday with Perkins at the top of the list of B-backs.

This is despite Perkins being third on the depth chart midway through the preseason. Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson says depth charts are still fluid and subject to change. But it sounds like Perkins earned his spot in the opener.

"He's done better than the other guys," Johnson said at his Friday news conference. "That's why he's the starter."
