This isn't the first time an unranked Georgia Tech team has defeated a ranked Auburn team, and it probably isn't as much of a surprise as it was two years ago, when the Yellow Jackets did it with a freshman quarterback.

But coach Chan Gailey is hoping his team is better-prepared to take its convincing win over the Tigers and get on with the rest of the season than the last time, when Tech proceeded to lose its next two games.

His message after the game? "Don't act like giddy schoolkids. It's a long season."
