Both Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech are enjoying bye weeks and Hokies' head coach Frank Beamer is thankful for the extra time to prepare for Paul Johnson's triple-option offense.
"I think Georgia Tech has a unique offense, a different offense, a very good offense, and I think the more time you've got to prepare for that, probably the better," Hokies coach Frank Beamer said.
The Yellow Jackets returned to the practice field on Tuesday while Virginia Tech will meet on Wednesday and hit the practice field on Thursday. The match up is a big game for both teams with control of the ACC's Coastal Division up for grabs. The Yellow Jackets enter the game trailing the Hokies by a half game in the standings.
Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Al Groh understands that Virginia Tech won't be coming into the game overconfident despite Tech winning just once in its last three games.
"Virginia Tech now views us as the team that beat the No. 5 team in the country," said defensive coordinator Al Groh, referring to Tech's win Saturday against Clemson.
