As the season lurks around the corner from the hot Atlanta summer days, the Georgia Tech Hockey team is looking to finalize its schedule for the upcoming season. Reaching out to teams from around the southeast, the Jackets fell upon the Florida State Seminoles for two early October matches.
The Jackets have been very familiar with the FSU Noles in the past few seasons. Dating back to February 7th, 2016, GT Hockey took a big loss during the ACC South Tournament in Columbus, GA. Going into the 2016-17 season, the Jackets were slated to take on the Seminoles twice: once in Savannah, GA for the Savannah Hockey Classic and once at their home rink in Atlanta, GA for the 2017 ACC South Tournament. After taking yet another substantial loss in Savannah, the boys stormed back just a few weeks later to take on to beat the Seminoles 7-5 en route to a ACC South Championship victory! Its very clear that these two ACC rivals know each other very well.
For this upcoming 2017-18 season, the Jackets will be facing the Noles a record four times! The first two meetings, the two games that were just added, will take place in Jackets backyard during the regular season. These games will be on Friday, October 6th at 10:10 PM and Saturday October 7th at 9:20 PM. We hope to see you all there! The two opponents won’t see each other until the spring term when they will square off yet again in the Savannah Tire Hockey Classic and, again, in the ACC South Tournament in Atlanta in February. We hope to see you at all of our meetings against our bitter ACC rival! Go Jackets!!
