Friday was a good day for schools that also participated in BCS bowl games. Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida, Texas, Oregon and TCU all won.
I’m not sure what to expect tonight. I wrote in today’s paper that it could be a pitcher’s duel. But after both teams hit the ball so well yesterday, who knows?
The wind is blowing out, which is good news for Tech’s lefty-heavy lineup. Balls don’t need a lot of help getting out of Russ Chandler’s right field as it is.
Tech needs two home runs to break the school’s single-season record of 119.
