The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are going to Charlotte.
Not as tourists to the Queen City, but as the ACC Coastal Champions.READ MORE: Southbound I-275 Lanes On Howard Frankland Bridge To Close August 15
Now maybe how they got there was a little unothodox and depended on another team having a few really bad games, but they go there nonetheless.
The Jackets needed Duke, the Division leader most of the season, to lose not one but two of it’s last three games. The Blue Devils lost to the Hokies AND the Tarheels. Both games were at Duke… and they still lost.
So social media is blowing up this Friday morning with Yellow Jacket fans chanting “ACC Champs!”
To borrow an overused and overqouted phrase, “Not so fast my friend.”
The Yellow Jackets now have to face the Florida State Seminoles and Jameis Winston on December 6th, 2014 in Charlotte, NC.

Not that the Yellow Jackets can’t beat that Seminole team, Tech beat the Clemson Tigers and their #1 ranked nationally defense. That same Clemson team took Florida State to overtime.
So that match up on December 6th, if nothing else, will be a GOOD one.
Looking forward to it.
Like Synjyn Days said back in July at Yellow Jackets training camp… “We’re going to Charlotte!” He must have a crystal ball.
Side note… Tech has clinched a spot in the ACC Championship game. If Tennessee can beat Missouri Saturday night the Dawgs will clinch a spot in the SEC Championship game.
