Atlanta, Ga--For the second time in three years, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech will square off on the flats. Both teams have taken some hits this season and really could use a win.

For the Jackets, it's about getting up for what some would call a lesser opponent on paper. For the eagles, little different playing in the sunbelt and they've had a week and a half to prepare for the triple option.

"You know it is different, it's kind of a one of those things that you only see one time a year, and it does create a lot of different things. You have to play with an extreme amount of discipline, it creates you have to play with an extreme amount of toughness." said Tyson Summers

"Having been there, I'm trying to make sure our guys understand how excited they are going to be to have a chance to come in here and play." said Paul Johnson

If Johnson needs any more motivation for the Jackets, he'll pull out the film from two years ago when the Eagles nearly shocked Tech as it came down to the final seconds. Game time, 12:30 in Atlanta
