Jackets' Smith plans to play in ACC title game

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech has opened practice for the ACC championship game without leading rusher Orwin Smith.

Smith, a native of Phenix City, Ala., says he's still expecting to play in Saturday night's game against No. 13 Florida State.

Smith missed last week's 42-10 loss to No. 3 Georgia with a sprained right ankle. His absence was felt, as the Yellow Jackets were held to a season-low in scoring.

The senior running back said Monday he "definitely" plans to practice on Tuesday.

Georgia Tech (6-6) is a two-touchdown underdog and will need its spread-option offense to be at full strength against Florida State's tough defense.

In a matchup of strengths, Georgia Tech is No. 3 in the nation in rushing, and Florida State ranks fourth against the run.
