R-So. QB Haynes King (10 – above) is one of only three NCAA Division I FBS players with at least 1,600 passing yards, 200 rushing yards and 15 touchdown passes this season (joining LSU’s Jayden Daniels and Oklahoma’s Dillon Gabriel) and only the fifth ACC player since 2000 to accomplish the feat in his team’s first six games of the season (joining North Carolina’s Drake Maye-2022, UNC’s Sam Howell-2021, Wake Forest’s Jamie Newman-2019 and Louisville’s Lamar Jackson-2016).

Top Storylines

• Georgia Tech returns from an open week and begins a two-game homestand at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Hyundai Field when it hosts Boston College for an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown on Saturday.

• Georgia Tech (3-3, 2-1 ACC) begins the second half of its season firmly in contention for a spot in the ACC Championship Game, as it stands in fifth place in the 14-team conference standings, only a game in the loss column behind No. 4 Florida State (4-0), No. 10 North Carolina (3-0) and No. 16/17 Duke (2-0).

• Prior to last Saturday’s bye, the Yellow Jackets earned one of the most thrilling victories in program history, a 23-20 triumph at No. 17 Miami (Fla.). Trailing 20-17 with less than a minute to play, Tech forced a fumble at its own 26 yard line, then marched 74 yards in 25 seconds — capped by a 44-yard touchdown pass from Haynes King to Christian Leary with one second left on the clock — to pull out the improbable win.

• With the victory at Miami, Georgia Tech moved to 5-1 in ACC road games under head coach Brent Key, which includes a perfect 3-0 mark against nationally ranked conference opponents.

• King’s 16 touchdown passes this season lead the ACC, are tied for eighth nationally and are the most ever by a Georgia Tech quarterback through the first six games of a season, topping the 14 thrown through six games by Joe Hamilton in 1999 and George Godsey in 2000.

• King’s 1,631 passing yards are the second-most ever by a Tech QB through six games, behind only Hamilton’s 1,671 through the first six contests in ’99, when he went on to finish second in voting for the Heisman Trophy.
