The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are expected to continue rotating at quarterback between Tevin Washington and Vad Lee during the ACC Championship Game against the Florida St. Seminoles. Head coach Paul Johnson has been alternating between the two quarterbacks for the past four games, with each usually getting two consecutive possessions before giving way to the other.

Lee, a redshirt freshman, is excited that he'll still have an opportunity to have an impact on the game:

"I’m very excited to see how my role unfolds. I’m trying to work hard in practice, just trying to compete and just trying to go hard, because I get the chance to play for (the ACC title) four years in a row."

Washington is completing 59.6 percent of his passes this season, and has compiled 1,097 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions in the air. He's also rushed for 618 yards and 18 touchdowns. Lee has seen much less time than Washington, but has gone 24-50 for 528 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, while rushing for 489 yards and nine touchdowns. If the game is close, Johnson may have to stick with the hot hand instead of continuing the rotation.
