Georgia Tech Football Kicks Off with a 41-0 Win Over Alcorn State!

The 2018 season for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets kicked off on Saturday, September 1, as they crushed the Alcorn State Braves at home 41-0!

Heading into the season, the Yellow Jackets were unranked after the latest release of the Associated Press’s preseason poll before the season opener. The team went 5-6 last season, but 2018 is a new year with an entirely rebuilt defense.

TaQuon Marshall is at the center of it all, and he has experience on his side going into his second year as a starter. Marshall also spent the off-season addressing his passing game, which will hopefully be showcased this fall.

A full line of veterans and one of the best running games in the nation only adds to the potential of the team during the upcoming season.

While the defense will shift to a 3-4 and the secondary is essentially starting anew, the talent is there to make this one of the most exciting seasons of Yellow Jackets football yet.

The team’s schedule itself also lets us know that the 2018 Yellow Jackets football season will be one to remember.

In September alone, the Yellow Jackets will take on Alcorn State, USF, Pitt and Bowling Green. It also includes one of the most highly anticipated match-ups of the season: the Clemson Tigers.

Some of the most competitive games of the 2018 CFB season are expected to be Virginia Tech, Miami and Georgia.

So, why not meet all of your buddies from Kappa Alpha Order at an upcoming tailgate for some great action by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets?

While most of us are more excited for football to start, there are also other fall sports to be excited about. Georgia Tech volleyball started on August 24, and cross country and golf start in September. The Georgia Tech men’s basketball team is set to host Florida Tech in an exhibition game on November 3.
