Georgia Tech will look to bounce back from a bad loss in the ACC Coastal Division with another conference clash this Saturday against the Tar Heels of North Carolina.

The Yellow Jackets briefly climbed into the AP Top 25 with their 5-0 SU start, but that run came to an end in last Saturday's 31-25 loss to Duke as 3.5-point home favorites.

North Carolina gave Notre Dame a run for its money last week in a 50-43 loss as a 16.5-point road underdog. It was the first time the Tar Heels covered ATS in six games this season.
