Poll: Will Virginia Tech beat Georgia Tech?

ATLANTA -- Well, here we go. For all the bracketologists and talking heads, it all comes down to a few important hours for the Virginia Tech Hokies.

With a win here over Georgia Tech, the Hokies (22-7, 9-6) should be comfortable on Selection Sunday as they will have probably played their way into the NCAA tournament field. But with a loss could end up dooming them, requiring them to make a big splash in next week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Georgia Tech (18-10, 7-8) is 14-1 at home. The Yellow Jackets are 4-7 against teams in the top 50 of the Rating Percentage Index, with wins over the likes of Duke and Clemson in ACC play. Georgia Tech is coming off a loss at Clemson and has only lost back-to-back games once this season.

So what do you think? Will the folks in Blacksburg rejoice with idea of the Hokies making their first NCAA tournament since 2007? Or will that party be put in doubt with a loss here?
