Selection Snapshot: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

With the ACC Championship Game still to play, Georgia Tech's bowl picture remains fuzzy. A win over Florida State in Charlotte would send the Yellow Jackets to the BCS. A loss to the Seminoles might remove them from bowl contention altogether at 6-7. If the Jackets are granted a waiver to allow postseason play, they could bring the nation's third-best rushing attack to Orlando.
