TV: ACC Network| Watch Online
Georgia Tech has the third-most improved offense in NCAA Division I FBS this season, averaging 119.0 yards per game more in 2023 (444.2 ypg) than it did in 2022 (325.2 ypg).
• Georgia Tech wraps up Atlantic Coast Conference play in 2023 when it hosts Syracuse on Saturday night at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Hyundai Field.
• There is a lot on the line for Tech (5-5, 4-3 ACC) in Saturday’s ACC finale, as the Yellow Jackets can clinch a bowl berth and a winning record in conference play for the first time in five years with a victory.
• Despite being conference-mates for 11 seasons, Georgia Tech and Syracuse are meeting for just the third time in ACC action and only the fifth time overall. Tech leads the all-time series, 3-1, and won the only previous matchup at Bobby Dodd Stadium, 56-0, in 2013 (the Orange’s first season in the ACC).
• Saturday’s matchup features two of the ACC’s most prolific rushing attacks. Georgia Tech ranks third in the conference and 22nd nationally in rushing offense with 195.4 yards per game on the ground. While Syracuse ranks sixth in the ACC in rushing offense (176.0 ypg), the Orange has run for 601 yards over the past two games, including a whopping 392 yards on 65 carries in last Saturday’s 28-13 win over Pitt at Yankee Stadium.
• Although it features a potent running game, Georgia Tech’s offense is no one-trick pony, as it ranks third in the ACC and 24th nationally in total offense (444.2 ypg) and features an All-America candidate at quarterback in redshirt sophomore Haynes King.
• With two regular-season games still to play, King’s 24 touchdown passes rank second in Tech single-season history, and his 2,459 passing yards and 3,001 yards of total offense both rank fourth in the school’s all-time single-season annals.
Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2
Looking to build on the success of last year’s Competitive Drive Initiative, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation and Georgia Tech athletics are partnering once again to launch Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2. CDI Turn 2 has a goal of raising $2.5 million in new gifts to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund by Dec. 31, and Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Foundation will match eligible gifts to accelerate the impact for Tech athletics. Like last year, not only will gifts to CDI Turn 2 be matched, but so will the contributor’s benefits in the way of A-T Fund giving levels and priority points.
