The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will host the Jacksonville State Gamecocks in 2017, the AJC has reported.
Georgia Tech will host Jacksonville State at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta on Sept. 9, 2017. The game will be the third meeting between the two schools following Tech wins in 2008 (41-14) and 2009 (37-17).
Jacksonville State, located in Jacksonville, Alabama, is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). JSU finished the 2014 season 10-2 overall, 8-0 in conference play, and fell to Sam Houston State in the second round of the FCS Playoffs.
