Dedrick Mills was the hero in Georgia Tech’s season opener. This weekend, the running back will take on the goat role.
Tech confirmed Wednesday that Mills is one of two players who will be suspended for this Saturday’s game against FCS Wofford. Reserve running back KirVonte Benson is the other who’s made his way into head coach Paul Johnson‘s doghouse.
The only reason given for the twin suspensions was the standard unspecified violation of team rules.
In starting the Week 1 win over Boston College in Ireland, Mills became the first true freshman to start an opener for the Yellow Jackets in nearly a decade.
In his first game at Tech, Mills led the team with 68 yards on the ground. His last four yards went for a touchdown with 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter, a run that proved to be the difference in the 17-14 win over the Eagles.
