This would be where Georgia Tech would end up if they were to make one of those "New Year's Six" bowls. The school is in Atlanta, which would make it an easy trip for fans an alumni. In fact, it's the only one of the six that's on the East Coast, and they'd likely face a team from the SEC or the Big Ten.

The ACC doesn’t have a definitive slot in this game, but this would be a great consolation prize for Georgia Tech. They would get to play that SEC team on New Year’s Day – the premier college football day of the bowl season - which is exactly what they want. However, the Citrus Bowl is more apt to go after the loser of the Big Ten Championship Game with Georgia Tech as the backup option.
Russell Athletic Bowl (ACC vs. Big 12)
Tues., Dec. 29, 5:30 p.m. ET
The Yellow Jackets will get the ACC's top bowl bid after Florida State if they were to lose to the Seminoles., and the Russell Athletic Bowl is the best they can do without playing in one of the “New Year’s Six” games. They could play Oklahoma, and Georgia Tech would jump at the chance to play the Sooners.
