Georgia Tech on Sunday accepted a bid to play in the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, held later this month in Shreveport, La. Having previously secured a bid, Air Force will be the Yellow Jackets’ opponent.
The teams will kick off at 4 p.m. on Dec. 27 on ESPN2.
News of the bowl selection came on the heels of a contentious last few weeks that had the Yellow Jackets slated to play in bowls as far as Washington, D.C., El Paso, Texas and San Francisco.
The Independence Bowl showing will be the first for the Yellow Jackets, and it will mark their fourth contest against the Falcons. Georgia Tech is 3-0 in the all-time series, outscoring Air Force 93-24 in those games.
Never miss a local story.
This also will be Georgia Tech's 14th consecutive trip to a bowl. Last season, as ACC champion, it earned a berth into the BCS' Orange Bowl.
