Georgia Tech’s road to a conference title and winning record heading into a bowl game may have gotten a bit rougher thanks to a lingering injury issue.

Running back Orwin Smith suffered an ankle injury in a game Nov. 17 and did not play in the Yellow Jackets’ regular-season finale against Georgia. ¬†After sitting out practice again Thursday, Smith was listed as doubtful on Tech’s injury report.

Per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, head coach Paul Johnson stated Wednesday that, if Smith didn’t practice the next day, he wouldn’t play in the ACC championship game against Florida State Saturday.

Smith currently leads the Yellow Jackets in rushing with 673 yards, while his nine yards per carry is far and away tops on the team.

    Speaking of Ga Tech, unknown sources are saying they have been approved by the Big Ten to become the 15th member.
