Given a potential shortage of 6-6 bowl-eligible teams, it's possible that Georgia Tech could make a bowl game even if they finish the season 5-7.
Georgia Tech currently sits at 3-6. If they win out their last three games (vs Virginia Tech, @ Miami (FL), vs Georgia), they'll crack a bowl. Should they drop one of those three, though, they still might have a shot at a very, very low-tier bowl game. As is, the Football Bowl Association is currently project 79 teams to finish 6-6 or better, which means one open slot, which means a chance for Georgia Tech. Several other teams, including Rutgers (3-6), Nebraska (4-6) and Vanderbilt (3-6) are in similar spots. These are all just predictions subject to change as we hit the final three weeks of regular season play. For his part, Yellow Jackets HC Paul Johnson indicated that the thought of finishing 5-7 with a bowl game earned hasn't entered his mind. Mon, Nov 9, 2015 09:41:00 PM
