Georgia Tech made their 16th consecutive bowl appearance in 2012, beating USC in the Sun Bowl. Vad Lee, last year’s backup, will presumably take over the quarterback position after the departure of Tevin Washington. The staff is excited about his potential, but in reality Georgia Tech goes to the running game much more often. Washington, David Sims, Zach Laskey, Lee, Orwin Smith, and Robert Godhigh all rushed for more than 400 yards last year, giving Georgia Tech the 4th best rushing attack in the nation. Lee, Sims, Laskey, and Godhigh return. Defensively, GT was a little worse than middle-of-the-pack last year and getting acclimated to the coach’s new system is a big priority for 2013. Continuity from last year’s players helps, but the fact that Georgia Tech is without a four-star recruit is an issue. Still, the offensive firepower is enough for the Yellow Jackets to stay competitive all year long with an average-looking schedule. The mediocre Jackets will probably extend that bowl streak to 17, but if the defense falters, it could be in danger.
The Georgia Yellow Jackets are based in Atlanta, Georgia at Georgia Institute of Technology. The Yellow Jackets, also known as the “Ramblin’ Wreck,” play in the Coastal Division of Atlantic Coast Conference. The Yellow Jackets are one of the most successful football programs in the country and since their first season in 1892, they have claimed four national titles, 16 conference titles, and boasted 21 consensus All-Americans. Bobby Dodd Stadium, also known as “The Flats,” has been home to the Yellow Jackets since 1913 and is the oldest and winningest stadium in the FBS. Georgia Tech has numerous rivalries with schools like Auburn, Clemson, Notre Dame, and rivalries with schools like Auburn, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech, but none are more heated than its oldest-standing rivalry with Georgia.
