ATLANTA (AP) — A stunning season-opening loss to Northern Illinois has third-year Georgia Tech coach Geoff Collins forced to defend the state of his rebuilding process.

Collins is 6-16 in his third season in Atlanta. Now Collins has a new injury concern at quarterback. Jeff Sims suffered an apparent left arm injury in the 22-21 loss to Northern Illinois. His arm was in a sling as he watched the second half. Saturday’s visit from FCS state rival Kennesaw State was expected to generate momentum for Georgia Tech’s ACC opener at No. 6 Clemson on Sept. 18.

Now no one dares to look past Kennesaw State.
