Lance Austin (17) returned a blocked field goal 78 yards for the game-winning touchdown as time expired in Georgia Tech’s 22-16 #GTWhiteout win over No. 9 Florida State in 2015.
• Georgia Tech looks to become bowl eligible for the 20th time in the last 22 seasons and keep its Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division championship hopes alive when it hosts Miami (Fla.) for a key ACC game on Saturday night.
• Georgia Tech (5-4, 3-3 ACC) has won four of its last five games to rebound from a 1-3 start and remain in contention for its fifth ACC Coastal Division title in 11 seasons under head coach Paul Johnson.
• The Yellow Jackets continue to put up historic numbers in their rushing game. Tech is ranked No. 1 nationally in rushing offense with 377.0 yards on the ground per game, a whopping 70.4 yards per game more than the nation’s No. 2-ranked rushing offense, Army West Point (306.6 ypg).
• Georgia Tech is on pace to finish with the most rushing yards per game of any NCAA Division I FBS team since Army averaged 378.6 rushing yards per game in 2012. It would also be the most rushing yards per game by a Power Five conference team since Nebraska averaged 399.8 yards per game on the ground in 1995.
• Defensively, Georgia Tech has climbed to No. 8 nationally with 20 forced turnovers this season. That is double the number of takeaways that the Jackets had all of last season, when they finished 124th out of 128 teams nationally in turnovers gained.
• Saturday’s contest is Georgia Tech’s annual Whiteout game at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The tradition began with a nationally televised primetime win over tonight’s opponent, Miami (Fla.), in 2008. The Yellow Jackets have won three of the last four Whiteout games, including a 28-17 win over Miami in 2014 and the “Miracle on Techwood Drive” triumph over No. 9 Florida State in 2015, both of which were played under the lights at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
