Georgia Tech qualifies for ACC title game

Georgia Tech will play in the ACC Championship Game in two weeks against Florida State.

The Yellow Jackets were awarded the Coastal Division title in the wake of Miami-Florida's decision to remove itself from postseason consideration. The Hurricanes would have tied for the division title with a win this coming Saturday at Duke, but school officials decided to impose a postseason ban for a second straight year as an NCAA inquiry into compliance practices continues.

North Carolina could also earn a tie for the division crown with a win against Maryland, but the Tar Heels are also ineligible for postseason play.

Florida State won the Atlantic Division crown and sits 10-1 overall this season heading into its annual showdown with Florida this Saturday. The Seminoles will then make the trip to Charlotte for a matchup with Georgia Tech on Dec. 1 with a likely Orange Bowl berth on the line.

Georgia Tech is 6-5 overall and will conclude its regular season this Saturday against arch-rival Georgia.

Florida State and Georgia Tech will play in the ACC title game for the first time. The schools last met in 2009, with Georgia Tech claiming a 49-44 win in Tallahassee.
