Uneven Yellow Jackets try to focus on ACC title

Posted: Updated:

Coach Paul Johnson knows that Georgia Tech is at a strange crossroads to a bizarre season.

If the Yellow Jackets upset No. 13 Florida State in the ACC championship game, they clinch a spot in the Orange Bowl.

If they lose, it might take an NCAA waiver for lower-tier bowls even to offer them an invitation.

But Johnson says he isn't concerned about Georgia Tech's postseason status with a conference title at stake on Saturday night in Charlotte, N.C.

Yes, Johnson acknowledges that the Yellow Jackets (6-6) were embarrassed to lose so convincingly at Georgia last week. But the fifth-year coach also says that the "sky isn't falling" and added that Georgia Tech can change its perception with a victory over Florida State.
