Virginia used to love when Georgia Tech came to town. From 1990 until 2009, the Cavaliers and Yellow Jackets had some stirring, nail-biting games at Scott Stadium, but one thing remained a constant: the home team always came out on top. Georgia Tech ended that string with a 34-9 victory in 2009, and when the teams meet on Virginia's field on Saturday, the 12th-ranked Yellow Jackets (6-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are favored to prevail again. The game also will mark the return of Al Groh, the coach of the Cavaliers in 2009, to Scott Stadium. He was fired after that season and now runs the defense for Georgia Tech. Virginia (3-2, 0-1) is returning from a bye week that gave it extra time to prepare.
