Georgia Tech plays in the ACC, one of the better conferences in the country in football and the best conference in the country in basketball.
In football the Yellow Jackets finished 7-6 overall and lost is last two games of the season. There is optimism for a better season in 2019 and the goal would be to get to the ACC Championship Game against Clemson.
