DETROIT — After previewing Ford Field during the Detroit Lions’ NFL game versus the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, Georgia Tech conducted its first practice on the field where Wednesday’s 2018 Quick Lane Bowl versus the Minnesota Golden Gophers will take place.

Monday’s highlights included:

  • a 75-minute practice at the home of the Detroit Lions and the site of the 2018 Quick Lane Bowl, Ford Field. The practice marked two key milestones for Georgia Tech — the last practice for 2018’s seniors and the last practice for head coach Paul Johnson. Coach Johnson usually elects a player to “break it down” at the end of each practice, but this time the players returned the favor, electing him to break it down one last time.

  • Also, as is tradition for the final practice of a season, the Yellow Jackets carried off the field all of the seniors in celebration of all of there accomplishments and dedication to Georgia Tech

  • The entire team left practice to volunteer however it could with the Gleaners Community Food Bank. The team packaged potatoes and apples throughout the afternoon to help those in the Detroit community that need it most.

  • Coach Johnson, senior Qua Searcy and senior Brant Mitchell spoke to local media while at the food bank about the importance of giving back to the community and the 2018 Quick Lane Bowl so far.



  • Being Christmas Eve, the Yellow Jackets had a calmer afternoon as the team went to see a movie before dinner and relaxing as they begin final preparations for Wednesday’s game.

Tuesday’s agenda includes:

  • A lighter final off day due to the holiday, the entire Georgia Tech football team will spend time together, enjoying a terrific Christmas Day feast;
  • the Yellow Jackets will then hold final team meetings as the last preparations for the 2018 Quick Lane Bowl take place before Wednesday’s 5:15 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.
