  Georgia Tech returns home this week after a disappointing 25-24 loss at Miami. The Yellow Jackets played the Hurricanes tough and actually had an 11 point lead twice in the game. Apart from an opening field goal by Miami, Tech lead the entire game until another field goal put the Canes ahead to stay with just four seconds left on the clock.
  It was the first true road game for the Jackets who had another one cancelled at Central Florida because of Hurricane Irma. Both of their losses have come by just a single point...the first ACC team with two one-point defeats in a season since Clemson and Duke both had a pair of one-point losses in 2006.
  "I'm sure it is frustrating. You hope that it hurts, but you've got to learn to put it behind you and move on," said head coach Paul Johnson. "You can't go back and change it. You've just got to talk about why it happened and why you were in that position and all the opportunities you had that we shouldn't have been in that position."
  Georgia Tech and Wake Forest renew a series under the lights at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU. This will be the first game between the schools since the Yellow Jackets' 24-20 win at Winston-Salem in 2010. This marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of this series with Tech leading 17-8 all-time.
  After a 4-0 start, the Demon Deacons have dropped two-straight to perennial ACC Atlantic Division powers Florida State (26-19) and Clemson (28-14). Taking care of the football has been the Deacons' calling card this season, as they lead the nation with only three turnovers lost (one fumble and two interceptions).
   Offensively, Wake Forest is led by quarterback John Wolford. A four-year starter, Wolford leads the team in passing (947 yards) and rushing (332 yards) and has accounted for 12 touchdowns (eight passing, four rushing) despite missing the last game at Clemson due to a shoulder injury. Defensively, Wake Forest ranks third in the ACC in scoring defense (16.7 points per game) and leads the nation with an
average of 9.2 tackles for loss per game on the year. Head Coach Dave Clawson addressed Wolford's health at his Wednesday press conference. "John took every rep with the offense & Cade (Running back Cade Carney) is not restricted at all. We expect those guys to go & be ready."
   Despite having only five career starts under his belt, Georgia Tech junior TaQuon Marshall has emerged as one of college football's most dynamic quarterbacks this season. With 929 yards of total offense (541 rushing, 388 passing) and 14 touchdowns responsible for (nine rushing, five passing) through five games, Marshall ranks among the top 20 nationally in five different statistical categories.
  Most notably, Marshall leads the ACC in scoring (10.8 ppg - eighth nationally) and rushing (108.2 ypg - 16th nationally).
  This is Homecoming Week for Georgia Tech.
