Georgia Tech To Play Air Force In Independence Bowl

Multiple sources are reporting that Georgia Tech from the ACC will be taking on Air Force in the Independence Bowl. The Ramblin' Wreck bring the same triple option run attack to Shreveport, La. and this will be the fastest bowl game this post season, so take those bathroom breaks strategically. Georgia Tech finished the year at 6-6 which was good enough to be third in the Coastal division of the ACC. 

Georgia Tech is number one and Air Force is number two in the nation rushing the ball, Tech averages 327 while Air Force comes in at 317.92 per game. This could be one of the rare games that could have less then 10 combined passes in a game.

Georgia Tech is hoping that quarterback Joshua Nesbitt can make a return to face Air Force, Nesbitt broke his arm back on Nov. 4th against Virginia Tech. Nesbitt has said that he would suit for Georgia Tech one more time in their bowl game. Two weeks ago Nesbitt had his stitches removed, but still had to wait a week before he could work out, so his status for the Dec. 27th bowl game is still uncertain.
