Georgia Tech to face Virginia Tech in key ACC game

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech can add to its strong start when it plays Virginia Tech on Thursday night in the rivalry that often decides the ACC's Coastal Division.

Virginia Tech (3-1, 0-0 ACC) or Georgia Tech (3-0, 2-0) has played in every Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.

In most years, the winner of the rivalry game has won the division. Last year was an exception. Virginia Tech beat the Yellow Jackets 20-17 in overtime, but Georgia Tech still made it to Charlotte.

The Yellow Jackets played in last year's ACC championship game. Even so, coach Paul Johnson says Virginia Tech is the team to beat in the division.

Johnson says Georgia Tech must "find a way to get over the top" against the Hokies, who have three straight wins in the series.
