Comments

Georgia Tech struggled against Clemson in their opener and the Yellow Jackets’ playcalling was abysmal. I don’t see any way that Tech could win this game. Georgia Tech relies heavily on the run but the Yellow Jackets aren’t strong runners. They need more production from their passing attack to avoid opponents loading the box.
