It’s option on option action with the two loaded option rushing attacks ready to hit each other in what should be a fun game that might take about 65 minutes to play.
Georgia Tech has hit the skids with a three-game losing streak with the offense not getting it done against Pitt in a wild 37-34 loss last week, after getting stuffed by Clemson and giving it up too much against Miami. With road games against North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Georgia coming up in November, a loss would a total disaster.
If Paul Johnson was on a hot seat before, a loss this week would be devastating.
The Yellow Jacket option attack hasn’t cranked up the ridiculous numbers it normally does, but it’s been effective enough. Can the defense hold down the Georgia Southern offense after giving up over five yards per crack against Pitt?
The Eagles couldn’t keep up the pace with Western Michigan, and then it was stunned last week in a puzzling weeknight loss to a winless Arkansas State team. The O is full of veterans who won’t be fazed by playing the ACC team – plenty of players are still around from the group that lost to Georgia Tech 42-38 two years ago.
Both teams know how to defend the option, but it doesn’t mean either one can properly defend it. Georgia Tech’s defensive front will clamp down in the second half.
