Georgia Tech's bowl options dwindling

Scott Cunningham

Georgia Tech could be headed back to the Sun Bowl.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets find themselves in an awkward position. As they enter the ACC Championship game, they an either end up in the Orange Bowl with a win or fall to 6-7 and end up in the Sun Bowl.

The Jackets played in the Sun Bowl last season and after the BCS Bowl games, the next options for members of the ACC are the Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Russell Athletic Bowl and the Sun. The Chick-fil-A and Russell Athletic bowls look like they want either N.C. State or Virginia Tech to represent the ACC, which leaves the Jackets in a boom-or-bust proposition of heading to the Orange Bowl or back to the Sun.

If the Jackets lose to the Florida St. Seminoles in the ACC Championship, they would need to file a bowl-eligibility waiver with the NCAA due to their record. The UCLA Bruins did the same thing last season when a loss in the Pac-12 championship game knocked them below .500. The Bruins had their waiver granted and Georgia Tech doesn't see there being a situation that leads to them not getting the same this year.
