ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has spent this week challenging his team to stay focused.
It's been a frustrating season for the Yellow Jackets, whose top achievement is a Sept. 14 win at Duke.
A 55-31 loss at Clemson last week ended their slim chance of returning to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game for a second straight year.
The performance was so uneven that Johnson has called on his players to use Saturday's game against FCS opponent Alabama A&M has a proverbial measuring stick.
With next week's game against Georgia looming, Johnson says Georgia Tech (6-4) must clean up the blocking and coverage techniques that broke down at Clemson.
Alabama A&M (4-7) is coming off a home win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Bulldogs' defense ranks No. 19 in FCS.
