Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Vs. Clemson Tigers: Tech Still Alive In ACC Coastal Standings

New, 1 comment

The Yellow Jackets (5-2, 3-1) have a four-game win streak going against their rival Clemson Tigers (3-3, 1-2), including an unprecedented season sweep in 2009 highlighted by the teams' ACC Championship shootout.

ACC Championship isn't a term likely to be spoken of very frequently by either fanbase, but a flicker of hope remains alive for the Jackets. At this point, they control their own conference destiny, with games against fellow division frontrunners Miami (4-2, 2-1) and Virginia Tech (5-2, 3-0) following right behind this week's, plus a tiebreaker edge over the North Carolina Tar Heels (4-2, 2-1).

Not that any of that matters all that much if they can't beat Clemson this Saturday.

As for Clemson's standing, they trail the Florida State Seminoles (6-1, 4-0) in the Atlantic Division by multiple games already. Though the two play in late November, the Tigers would need tons of help to keep up their end of the rematch bargain.
