ATLANTA -- Georgia Techs unusual opener against Boston College on Saturday in Dublin, Ireland, marks the Yellow Jackets first game outside the United States.Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson, who has coached in Ireland before, says the Dublin fans may have a different take on the game.Johnson was Navys offensive coordinator in 1996 when Navy played Notre Dame in Dublin. He says he heard the same question from local fans leading up to the game.It was really kind of weird, Johnson said after Mondays practice. We were over there for a couple of days, and it was all `How could a tiny school like Notre Dame play the whole Navy? Fans thought they were the big underdog. It was kind of funny.Saturdays game will give Johnson an earlier Atlantic Coast Conference opener than he would prefer in an ideal schedule.Youd like to have more of a dress rehearsal game but were not fortunate enough to do that, he said.Georgia Tech and Boston College are coming off disappointing 3-9 seasons in 2015. Georgia Tech won only one ACC game last year and the Eagles finished 0-8 in conference games.Johnsons hopes for a positive start to the 2016 schedule could be complicated by the unusual travel and the possibility of jet lag.

He said Dukes team wore coats and ties for flights from Atlanta to Anchorage to Tokyo.By the time we walked into the hotel, it was a 22-hour trip and everybodys suit could stand up by themselves, Roof said.There may be more stories of long travel before Saturdays game is played at Dublins Aviva Stadium, normally the site for rugby and soccer.For now, there is only excitement for Georgia Tech players. Johnson said 80 players will be leaving the United States for the first time.Were getting the best of both worlds, Austin said. Its really a blessing to get picked to play in this game. We get to play college football, which we love to do, and at the same time we get to travel and see the world and most people dont even get to get out of the country.---APs college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
