Virginia leads the series with the Yellow Jackets, 15-11, but Georgia Tech has been the more successful team of late, winning the last four, and eight of the last nine matches, between the two schools. The Jackets and Cavaliers are an even 6-6 on matches played in Atlanta.
Georgia Tech has held the upper hand in the series against the Hokies, winning the last five matches after losing the first two matches of the series.
Following this weekend’s matches, Tech will host Boston College and Maryland in the last two regular season matches for the Yellow Jackets.
