Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson calls out SEC, Tennessee after bowl win over Kentucky
Georgia Tech had a great season when it came to playing SEC teams.
Coach Paul Johnson’s Yellow Jacket squad took down Vanderbilt 38-7 in Week 3, squeaked by Georgia 28-27 in the regular-season finale and earned a 33-18 win over Kentucky in Saturday’s TaxSlayer Bowl.
After the game, Johnson called out the SEC and put Tennessee on blast:
“We’re 3-0 in the SEC East and have Tennessee next.” – @GTPaulJohnson

Butch Jones and the Volunteers open the 2017 season against the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta on Sept. 4, 2017. Now, they’ll have plenty of motivation for that ACC-SEC showdown.
If the Vols lose to Johnson’s crew, it’ll be up to the Bulldogs to redeem themselves and their conference against their in-state rival on Nov. 25, 2017.
