Tech to face free-falling USC in El Paso

By staff
Georgia Tech has accepted a bid to play the University of Southern California in the 79th annual Hyundai Sun Bowl Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas. The game will kick off at 2 p.m. and will be televised by CBS.

The Yellow Jackets will make their 16th consecutive postseason bowl appearance, tying for the fourth-longest current streak nationally. Tech will also make its second straight trip to El Paso, where last season the Jackets lost to Utah, 30-27, in overtime.

Georgia Tech, 6-7 overall, is coming off a hard-fought 21-15 loss to 13th-ranked Florida State in the Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game Saturday night in Charlotte, N.C. The Yellow Jackets overcame a 2-4 start (1-3 in the ACC) to win four straight conference games and finish 5-3 in the ACC.

Southern California, 7-5 overall and 5-4 in the Pac 12, won six of its first seven games after being ranked No. 1 in many preseason polls.
