Choice, Georgia Tech host Samford in home opener

Sep 8, 2007 - 10:30 AM Samford (1-0) at No. 21 Georgia Tech (1-0), 1:30 pm EDT

ATLANTA (Ticker) - A week after trouncing one of college football's most storied programs, Tashard Choice and Georgia Tech figure to deliver another strong performance in their home opener.

Choice and the 21st-ranked Yellow Jackets hope to build off the momentum of their season-opening win over Notre Dame when they host Samford on Saturday.

Unranked in the preseason, Georgia Tech returned to the polls Tuesday thanks to last weekend's 33-3 rout in South Bend.

Choice rushed for a career-high 196 yards and two touchdowns while the Yellow Jackets forced three fumbles and limited the Fighting Irish to just 122 yards of total offense.

It was the seventh career 100-yard rushing performance for Choice, who established the school record. The senior likely will have another big day against Samford, which is 0-7 all-time against Georgia Tech.

The Bulldogs kicked off their season last Thursday with a 23-21 triumph over fellow Football Championship Subdivision team West Alabama.

Jefferson Adcock completed 18-of-36 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns for Samford, which is 0-11 against Football Bowl Subdivision teams since 1988.
