Georgia Tech is heading back to the Sun Bowl for the second straight year and will face underachieving Southern California.
The Yellow Jackets, who got a waiver from the NCAA to play in the postseason despite having a 6-7 record following a loss in the ACC championship game, will play in a bowl game for the 16th straight season. That's the fourth-longest streak in the nation.
USC (7-5), which was ranked No. 1 to start the season, hasn't faced Georgia Tech since 1973. The Trojans have won two of the three previous meetings.
The Sun Bowl will be played Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas.

Fox Sports' Sara Jane Harris and GoJackets.com's Jonathan Leifheit discuss the 2013 Georgia Tech recruiting class.
First it was a heckuva effort by Georgia Tech. When they got down 21-3, it looked like there were going to get humiliated. In the 2nd half they played with a defensive effort and intensity that I haven’t seen all year. The Jackets went to an aggressive blitzing package that really threw the Seminoles off balance. Hint for Paul Johnson… You don’t have alot talent on defense...
