Prediction & Game Preview To Come

EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FL, 11:00 ET, ABC

Georgia Tech, ACC, 8-4

The Yellow Jackets are going to come at you with the option over and over and over again – it’s just a question of whether or not you can stop them. With time to prepare, there should be enough practices to keep the Tech offense in check, but it’s next to impossible to simulate the speed and precision.

Kentucky, SEC, 7-5

Just when it seemed like the Mark Stoops era was over and the program was going to take a different direction after an 0-2 start, all of a sudden, Kentucky started winning. With a home run-hitting ground game that turned good enough to blow up for over 240 yards per game, and with a defense that was surprisingly okay against the average SEC passing games, the Cats won five of their last seven games to finally break through the 5-7 Stoops bowl hex and get to the post-season. Win, and all of a sudden, this will be a team everyone will jump on for 2017.
