The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets begin their season with one of their toughest games, as they travel to Blacksburg to play perennial ACC title contender Virginia Tech on Labor Day.
The game, scheduled for 8:00 p.m. EST, will be on ESPN, a rare primetime national TV appearance for Paul Johnson's squad.
The Yellow Jackets will be coming in as significant underdogs, as least according to Vegas. They are getting +7.5 points against the Hokies with an over/under of 49 points.
While they have lost three of their last four games to Frank Beamer's squad, the opening day game will give them an opportunity to get out to an early lead in ACC play. And if they lose, they would still have plenty of time to make up ground over the course of the season.
