COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Saturday: Georgia Tech vs. Florida State, 3:30 p.m., Tallahassee, ABC. Schedule

  •  Although Georgia Tech doesn’t recognize starters, the Yellow Jackets return 17 players that were on the field for the majority of the first offensive/defensive snaps last season — nine on offense and eight on defense.
  •  With the start of the season being pushed back due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Georgia Tech is playing its latest season opener since it opened the 1992 season on Sept. 12 versus Western Carolina.
  • Saturday’s game is Georgia Tech’s first versus Florida State since the Jackets’ memorable “Miracle on Techwood Drive” 22-16 win over the No. 9 Seminoles on Oct. 24, 2015.

Sept. 19: Georgia Tech hosts Central Florida, 3:30 p.m., ESPN.

  • Around the majors. MLB / Scores/Schedule / MLB Network
  • The Braves reinstated second baseman Ozzie Albies from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday after optioning infielder Johan Camargo to the club’s alternate training site following Tuesday night’s 8-0 loss to the Marlins. Albies had been on the injured list since Aug. 5 with a bone contusion in his right wrist. In 11 games before the injury, Albies was hitting .159 with a home run and six RBIs. He’s 7-for-44, but all seven of those hits have come while batting left-handed. The switch-hitter is 0-for-9 so far this season in 10 plate appearances as a righty — the same side that his injury was on.
