College Football: Georgia Tech adds Alabama A&M to 2013 schedule

ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Tech has added Alabama A&M to its 2013 schedule, giving the Yellow Jackets two Football Championship Subdivision opponents. Georgia Tech will have to win at least seven games to qualify for a bowl game because it will face two FCS teams. It will open its 2013 season against FCS opponent Elon. Alabama A&M will visit Georgia Tech on Nov. 23, 2013, one week before the Yellow Jackets play Georgia. The Atlantic Coast Conference is sticking with eight-game conference schedules in 2013 instead of expanding to nine games. That left a void in Georgia Tech's schedule. The Yellow Jackets, who won the ACC's Coastal Division before losing to Florida State in the ACC championship game, will play Southern California in the Sun Bowl with a 6-7 record.
