5) Tailgate Guys on Tech Green
Tailgate Guys is moving into its fourth successful season as the official tailgate management company of Georgia Tech Athletics.

6) Enhanced Safety Measures
Georgia Tech Athletics has enhanced its safety and security measures this season for fans to safely enjoy their experience inside Bobby Dodd Stadium. This season, security has adopted a new policy of the use of magnetic wanding at all the entry gates into the stadium. Please make sure that you remove all items such as cell phones, keys or other metal objects from your pockets while being scanned. Also plan accordingly and give yourself extra time to get into the stadium.
