ATLANTA (AP) -- The third Saturday in October is not too early for Georgia Tech to worry about extending its streak of 16 consecutive bowl seasons.
Three straight losses to Virginia Tech, Miami and BYU have raised the pressure for Georgia Tech (3-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) to end the skid against Syracuse on Saturday.
Syracuse (3-3, 1-1), coming off a win at N.C. State, is making its first trip to Georgia Tech.
The Yellow Jackets play two Football Championship Subdivision teams this season. They opened with a 70-0 rout of Elon on Aug. 31 and will play Alabama A&M on Nov. 23. Only one win over a FCS team can count toward bowl eligibility, so Georgia Tech likely needs to win four of its last six games.
