The Yellow Jackets (2-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell out of the Top 25 with losses to Notre Dame and Duke. Georgia Tech was hurt by special teams breakdowns...

FanDuel illegally uses Georgia Tech players’ likenesses

FanDuel isn’t exactly having the best week. First, they’re facing the loss of ad time on SEC networks and now they’re in hot water for using images of former Georiga Tech players in advertisements without their knowledge, compensation or permission from Georgia Tech’s athletic department.

Georgia Tech-Duke Preview

(AP) - Paul Johnson didn't mince words when assessing Georgia Tech's loss at Notre Dame. Hardly anyone escaped the coach's stinging post-mortem. ''I think we had triple the missed assignments we've ever had in a game I've been a part of,'' Johnson said Monday, putting the total at more than 70. ''We got rattled a little bit. When you have a lot of young guys on the road in a hostile...

At No. 15 Georgia Tech, defense looks to make mark vs Tulane

ATLANTA (AP) At Georgia Tech, the triple-option offense gets all the headlines. That's just fine with the guys on the other side of the line. ''Offense, offense, offense,'' senior safety Jamal Golden quipped. ''When this offense is scoring and running the ball like they do, it's kind of hard not to talk about them.'' The No. 15 Yellow Jackets (1-0) host Tulane (0-1) on Saturday...

Video: Georgia Tech’s Harrison Butker Makes Long Kick To End Practice Early, Is Mobbed By Teammates

Kicker Harrison Butker might just be the most popular player on the team among his Yellow Jackets teammates. Last summer, Butker saved the team from sprints with a 50-yard bomb against the wind. This year, Georgia Tech was indoors, and Butker was 47 yards out, but he still converted, and practice was ended an hour early. Never tell Georgia Tech that kickers aren’t football players...

Freshman Brad Stewart could start at WR for Georgia Tech

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have taken a few hits in their receiving corps over the summer and heading into the final few weeks of the offseason. The team knew that they had to do something in order to have enough talent at the position for their opening game.

Five Burning Questions: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

The Georgia Tech program, much like the Georgia Southern and Navy versions that preceded it, is a tribute to Paul Johnson's stubbornness. That's meant as a compliment, a nod to one of the most consistent forces in college football. Johnson's teams have never challenged for an FBS national title -- Georgia Southern won back-to-back Division I-AA titles under him in 1999 and 2000 ...

Georgia Tech's Snoddy making return from devastating injury

ATLANTA (AP) Broderick Snoddy is Georgia Tech's only current running back who ran for more than 18 yards last season. That doesn't mean Snoddy's status as a starter was a certainty entering preseason practice. Snoddy's 2014 season ended when he broke the fibula and tibia in his left leg in a Nov. 15 victory over Clemson. Snoddy missed spring practice while recovering from the horrific...

Georgia Tech players have cars burglarized at hotel

Having your car broken into and your stuff stolen is never a fun thing to go through. My parents had an old car of theirs burglarized and my GameBoy was in there when I was eleven. It was devastating to me as a child. I couldn’t imagine the stress and anger I would experience if that were to happen to me now. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, several Georgia Tech football...

Has Georgia Tech Football turned the corner?

The last time the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets won eleven games in 2009 they followed that up with a rather unremarkable season and a trip to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport.  So the question becomes: how will 2015 be any different this time around?  Obviously the answer to that dilemma requires that first the team will have to play out the season in order to determine whether...
