Top Storylines

• Georgia Tech football closes the Atlantic Coast Conference portion of its 2021 schedule on Saturday when it hosts Boston College for the first time in nine years on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

• Saturday’s meeting is the first between Georgia Tech and Boston College in Atlanta since the Yellow Jackets defeated the Eagles, 37-17, on Oct. 20, 2012 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

• Tech and BC are meeting in consecutive years for the first time since 2007 and 2008. As members of opposite ACC divisions (Georgia Tech in the Coastal, Boston College in the Atlantic), the Jackets and Eagles do not play each other on an annual basis. However, they met last year in Chestnut Hill, Mass. as part of the ACC’s expanded conference schedule due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

• Georgia Tech leads the all-time series, 7-3, including a 3-2 advantage in games played at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

• The Yellow Jackets are looking to bounce back from last week’s 33-30 defeat at Miami (Fla.). The three-point loss was the Jackets’ fourth one-score defeat of the season.

• For the second time this season, Tech Jr. DB Juanyeh Thomas is the reigning ACC Defensive Back of the Week. Last Saturday at Miami, Thomas became the first NCAA Division I FBS player since 2015 to record at least nine tackles, a sack, 1.5 tackles for loss, a forced fumble and score points in a single game.

• Georgia Tech also features one of the nation’s hottest offensive players in Fr. RB Jahmyr Gibbs. Gibbs, who ranks third nationally with 161.9 all-purpose yards per game, has had a 50-plus-yard play from scrimmage in each of the past five games.
