Another piece of the NCAA mid-season invite puzzle is falling into place, with top programs Florida, Alabama and Florida State expected to attend the Georgia Tech Invite.
Georgia Tech provided us with a preliminary list of programs currently scheduled to compete:
University of Alabama
East Carolina University
Florida State University
University of Florida
Georgia Southern University
University of North Carolina
University of South Carolina
University of Utah
Georgia Southern only has a women’s program, but the other schools appear in line to bring both their men’s and women’s teams to Georgia Tech. The Georgia Tech Invite takes place from November 22-24 in Atlanta. That’s the first major weekend of mid-season invites, but the latest of that weekend with a Friday-through-Sunday schedule.
