Georgia Tech and Virginia are both looking for key victories on Saturday but only one will leave the field victorious, here are four players that will help decide Saturday’s matchup.

On Saturday afternoon, both the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Virginia Cavaliers will be looking for pivotal wins in their season.

For the Yellow Jackets, a win on Saturday will move them one win away from bowl eligibility. A loss would put them in a whole they can’t afford and would put them on the edge of missing a bowl game for the second time in three seasons.

For the Cavaliers, a win will make them bowl eligible for the first time since 2011. A loss on Saturday for the Cavaliers would be their fourth of the season and third straight after starting the season off 5-1. With Louisville, Miami, and Virginia Tech left after the Jackets, the Cavaliers could be losing a grip on their postseason hopes with another loss.

Saturday’s matchup won’t be a factor in the ACC Coastal division race but could be the biggest factor in both programs hopes for making a bowl game. Here are four players that will decide the fate of Saturday’s game.
