Georgia Tech gets nod for No. 1


Who will be No. 1 after tomorrow's bowl games? Anyone but the team who is No. 1 the day before the bowl games, Colorado, according to Evening Sun readers and other respondents to "It's Your Call."

Of the top five teams -- Colorado, Georgia Tech, Texas, Miami and Notre Dame -- No. 1 Colorado received the fewest votes, 38 of the 333 responses (11 percent), heading into its Orange Bowl meeting with Notre Dame. The fifth-ranked Irish received 23 percent support (78), second only to No. 2 Georgia Tech, the winner with 81 responses in The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues. No. 3 Texas (14 percent), No. 4 Miami (15 percent) -- who meet in tomorrow's Cotton Bowl -- and even "other schools" (12 percent) received more support than the top-ranked Buffaloes.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
