No. 14 Miami opens ACC play against Georgia Tech

By TIM REYNOLDS
AP Sports Writer

Miami is concerned about Georgia Tech's offense.

So is Georgia Tech.

The Yellow Jackets' triple-option is a scheme that gives opponents fits. But Miami has handled it in each of the last four years, and the 14th-ranked Hurricanes will try to extend that streak when they host the Yellow Jackets in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Saturday afternoon.

It's the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for Miami (4-0, 0-0). Meanwhile, Georgia Tech (3-1, 2-1) will be reaching the midpoint of its conference season, as the Yellow Jackets try to stay in the thick of the Coastal Division race.

Georgia Tech's point and yardage total has dropped in each of the last three games, but the Hurricanes say the Yellow Jackets still have enough talent to give anyone fits, themselves included.
