Georgia Tech needs first ACC win against Virginia

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It's only mid-September, and already Georgia Tech is feeling pressure in the ACC's Coastal Division.

A season-opening loss to Virginia Tech has left Georgia Tech in a must-win scenario against Virginia on Saturday.

Virginia coach Mike London wants to make sure his players feel the same urgency. Virginia (2-0) is entering its Atlantic Coast Conference opener after a 17-16 win over Penn State.

Georgia Tech (1-1 overall, 0-1 ACC) used last week's 59-3 rout of Presbyterian as a get-well game. The Yellow Jackets opened the season with a 20-17 overtime loss at Virginia Tech that coach Paul Johnson called "gut-wrenching."

The Yellow Jackets have added incentive. The visit from Virginia gives Georgia Tech a chance to make up for its first loss of the 2011 season.
