After committing no penalties in last Saturday’s game at Ole Miss (only the eighth time in school history), Georgia Tech ranks No. 1 in NCAA Division I FBS in fewest penalties (5) and penalties per game (1.67) this season, and is second nationally in fewest penalty yards (65) and penalty yards per game (21.67).

Top Storylines

• Georgia Tech resumes Atlantic Coast Conference play and an ACC rivalry this week, as the Yellow Jackets make their first trip to conference foe Wake Forest in 13 years on Saturday.

• Due to formerly being in opposite ACC divisions (Georgia Tech in the Coastal Division, Wake Forest in the Atlantic), the Yellow Jackets and Demon Deacons have only met once in the last 12 seasons, a 38-24 Tech win in Atlanta in 2017. The Jackets have not traveled to Winston-Salem to face Wake since 2010, a 24-20 Tech win.

• With the introduction of the ACC’s new 3-5-5 scheduling format, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest are now scheduled to meet annually, as Wake is one of the Yellow Jackets’ three designated annual opponents (which also include Clemson and Louisville).

• Tech has won three-straight over Wake Forest, dating back to a 9-6 loss to the Demon Deacons in the 2006 ACC Championship Game. The Yellow Jackets have won the last five regular-season matchups, with Wake’s last win coming in 2002, and hold a commanding 23-8 edge in the all-time series.

• The Yellow Jackets will bring one of the nation’s top offenses to Winston-Salem, as they rank in the top 30 nationally total (14th – 513.3 ypg), passing (20th – 310.0 ypg) and rushing (28th – 203.3 ypg) offense this season.

• QB Haynes King continues to lead the Jackets’ high-powered offense, as he ranks among the nation’s leaders in touchdown passes (eighth – 9), passing yards (ninth – 303.3 ypg), total offense (10th – 335.0 ypg) and points responsible for (11th – 20.0 ppg).
