THE FLATS – Due to Saturday’s weather forecast in Atlanta, Georgia Tech athletics, in collaboration with the Institute’s Office of Emergency Preparedness, has enacted its extreme heat policy to allow each fan to bring one (1) sealed, clear bottle of water (up to 20 oz.) into Bobby Dodd Stadium for Saturday’s football game versus The Citadel. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m.
