Last week reports surfaced that the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets could square off in a Labor Day duel as a new way to kickoff conference play. According to reports, the schedule has been locked in and the two tech schools will face off on September 3rd.
The first game of the season now adds an extra layer of importance and preparation that Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson will have to deal with. Both teams should be ranked prior to the game so look for this battle to be placed right in the middle of college football's opening weekend prime time schedule.
