CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina can't go to a bowl. If Georgia Tech doesn't get rolling soon, the Yellow Jackets aren't going anywhere, either.

Coach Paul Johnson's team looks to continue its march toward bowl eligibility — and maybe even the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game — Saturday when Georgia Tech faces the Tar Heels in a pivotal Coastal Division matchup.

The Yellow Jackets (4-5, 3-3) can play their way into their third league title game since 2006 with two wins and some help. But if they don't win two of their last three, they'll miss the postseason for the first time since 1996.

The Tar Heels (6-3, 3-2) can't go to a bowl because of NCAA sanctions against the program. But they can play spoiler in the division race.
