THE FLATS – Two of Georgia Tech football’s most anticipated matchups of the 2024 season will be held in conjunction with two of the Institute’s biggest weekends of the year, as the Yellow Jackets will host Notre Dame for Family Weekend on Oct. 19 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Miami (Fla.) for homecoming on Nov. 9 at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Hyundai Field.

This season will mark the first time that Georgia Tech’s Family Weekend is aligned with the Jackets’ annual home date at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which will not only allow families of Tech students to witness one of the biggest games of the year, but also give them the opportunity to enjoy the amenities at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, one of the world’s premier stadiums. Home of the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons, Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Super Bowl LII and the 2026 World Cup, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is located less than a mile from Georgia Tech’s Midtown Atlanta campus.

Georgia Tech hosts Atlantic Coast Conference rival Miami for homecoming at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Hyundai Field. The Yellow Jackets have won homecoming thrillers each of the past two seasons – a 23-20 overtime victory over Duke in 2022 and a 46-42 come-from-behind triumph over No. 17 North Carolina last fall – and are 55-18-1 all-time in homecoming games at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Tech is also 1-0 all-time in homecoming games against Miami (a 30-23 victory in 2006). The teams played perhaps the most memorable game in series history last season in south Florida, when the Yellow Jackets forced a turnover with 26 seconds remaining, marched 74 yards in 24 seconds and scored the winning touchdown with two seconds to go on a 44-yard pass from Haynes King to Christian Leary, which capped Tech’s 23-20 win over the 17th-ranked Hurricanes.
