ATLANTA (AP) - Coach Paul Johnson wants Georgia Tech to forget about its Atlantic Coast Conference record and focus solely on Middle Tennessee.
Johnson says the Yellow Jackets really have no other choice.
As poorly as Georgia Tech played in the second half last week against Miami, Johnson wants his team to correct mistakes against a non-conference opponent and move forward.
Against Middle Tennessee (2-1), the Jackets (2-2) need to more consistency from an offense that last week went scoreless in the final 25 minutes of regulation and overtime and from a defense that allowed Miami to close the game with 23 unanswered points.
Georgia Tech's defense allowed 609 total yards and an average of 9.4 yards over the Hurricanes' final 23 plays.
