GEORGIA TECH (11-2) VS. IOWA (10-2) Kickoff: Tonight, 5:15 PST, Land Shark Stadium, Miami. TV: Channel 11. About Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets won the Atlantic Coast Conference largely on the strength of their running game, which ranks second nationally (307.2 yards per game). In his second season, Coach Paul Johnson has proved that the triple-option can still be successful on the college level. About Iowa: The Hawkeyes aren't flashy -- especially their offense, which ranks 93rd in the nation -- but they play terrific defense and are as physically tough as any team in the nation.

Georgia Tech looked unstoppable. Then it was Clemson's turn. In a game of remarkable twists, the Yellow Jackets finally took control when it mattered most. Scott Blair kicked a 36-yard field goal with 57 seconds left and No. 15 Georgia Tech defeated Clemson, 30-27, after squandering a 24-point lead Thursday night at Atlanta. Clemson (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored 27 straight points, taking its first lead of the night on Richard Jackson's 53-yard field goal with 11:33 to go. But Georgia Tech, which did nothing offensively through most of the second and third quarters, finally came back to life.

Former Indiana player Jason Collier has decided to continue a family tradition at Georgia Tech. Collier, a 7-foot sophomore center, said Thursday that he has transferred to Georgia Tech, where his father, Jeff, played center from 1972-76. Collier quit the Hoosier program on Dec. 18, citing a personality conflict with Coach Bobby Knight. Collier won't be able to play for Georgia Tech until next December because the NCAA requires transfer players to sit out a year.

This is a bowl game in the loosest sense of the word for Georgia Tech. The No. 15 Yellow Jackets (9-2) were right at home as they prepared for today's Peach Bowl game against Louisiana State (7-4). The Georgia Tech campus is only about a mile away from Atlanta's Georgia Dome. "I feel like this is going to be a road game for us," LSU Coach Nick Saban said. "I expect a lot of noise, and it's going to be a partisan crowd for Georgia Tech."

ATLANTA -- Thunder and Lightning were nothing special, and Clemson's special teams were downright horrible. Georgia Tech stifled the dynamic running duo of James "Thunder" Davis and C.J. "Lightning" Spiller and took advantage of a stunningly poor performance by Mark Buchholz and the rest of Clemson's kicking game Saturday, upsetting the 13th-ranked Tigers, 13-3.
