Georgia Tech is gearing up for what will be a tough game against top-ranked Clemson on Thursday evening.

The odds are against Geoff Collins in his Yellow Jackets head coaching debut. Georgia Tech is a near 40-point underdog — according to OddShark — heading into tonight's match-up.

With Collins in charge, a new culture and various traditions have been implemented. One new pregame tradition in particular is catching the eye of college football fans everywhere.

While scanning the field before the game, ESPN's David Pollack sees something he's never seen before — players lifting weights as a pregame warm-up. The pregame routine is certainly unique.

Pollack's caption reads, "I have never seen this in all my years around football. Never. Georgia Tech pregame!"

The video triggers mixed reactions from the fans. Some don't understand the purpose of the routine while others love the work ethic exhibited.

What are your thoughts towards Georgia Tech's unconventional warm-up?

The Yellow Jackets are looking for better results after a 7-6 season in 2018. One of those losses came by the hands of Clemson — the Tigers took down the Yellow Jackets 49-21. At no point was the game competitive.

Georgia Tech is hoping for a different result on Thursday night against Clemson.
