Georgia Tech (7-5) vs. Minnesota (6-6) Game Preview
Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The Quick Lane Bowl
– It’s the final game in the terrific career of Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson, and it’s the final game of the amazing option offense that leads the nation in rushing. Temple head man Geoff Collins is on the way, but first, Johnson gets one more shot to crank up the deadly attack that’s been unstoppable at times over the second half of the season.
– If you don’t like this bowl game, or if you have some place to be, don’t worry – this will be over in a hurry. It’s not that these two don’t, won’t or can’t throw, but the main mode of transportation should be on the ground in what should be among the fastest of the bowl games. If these two rushing attacks operate like they should, the pace should be quick.
– For those of you into historical firsts, Minnesota and Georgia Tech have never played each other before. To take this further, this the first time Minnesota has ever played a team from Georgia. To get even more obscure – and who doesn’t? – this is the first time Georgia Tech has played a game in the state of Michigan since beating Michigan State 21-16 in 1972.
