Both Clemson and Georgia Tech are having news conferences today regarding their bowl games, and Chick-fil-A president Gary P. Stokan confirmed they'll be selecting Georgia Tech. The Gator Bowl is expected to select Clemson.

"We think Georgia Tech is the most deserving team in the conference," Stokan said this morning. "They won their way into our game by impressively beating Miami, who was ranked at the time as well as Georgia. Paul Johnson is coach of the year in the ACC and certainly our mission of the Chick-fil-A Bowl is to put the best matchup on the field. Although we know there may be economic impact that may be given up, our bowl is a reward for the players, and the kids at Georgia Tech certainly deserve an opportunity to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl."
