Georgia Tech has lost three straight games, a skid that prompted coach Paul Johnson to fire his defensive coordinator in the middle of the season. Boston College is mired in a four-game skid, a stretch that has really turned up the heat on embattled coach Frank Spaziani.
Both teams will try to turn things around Saturday when they meet in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta.
The Yellow Jackets (2-4, 1-3 ACC) dumped defensive coordinator Al Groh last week after giving up more than 40 points for the third game in a row. The Eagles (1-5, 0-3) have yet to beat an FBS opponent and are coming off their worst loss of the season, a 51-7 blowout at Florida State.
