Georgia Tech (1-2) vs. Temple (2-1) Game Preview
Why Temple Will Win
The Georgia Tech offense really isn’t working.
It’s trying to push away from the old days of the triple-option, but there’s no passing game – Georgia Tech has the worst air attack in the ACC – and the ground attack isn’t nearly good enough to pick up the slack.
The run defense stats aren’t quite fair – the Yellow Jackets got hammered by Clemson, and a Citadel option offense – but again, the bigger issue is the Tech offense that’s having way too hard a time scoring.

Why Georgia Tech Will Win
This is the time to start testing out the ground game.
Last week, Buffalo was able to rumble for over 200 yards and four scores as it stunned a Temple defense that couldn’t get off the field. The bigger issue for the Owls were turnovers, giving it away four times and now are down to a -5 on the year in the margin.
Georgia Tech is struggling, but it’s been okay when it comes to turnover margin at dead even so far. It’s not going to make a whole slew of mistakes unless it starts pressing.
The Yellow Jacket pass defense has been good so far, overall the team isn’t making enough mistakes, and …
What’s Going To Happen
The offense just isn’t working.
This is going to be a weird Temple team. It looked and played like a world-beater as it stopped Maryland, but it couldn’t stop messing up in the blowout loss to Buffalo.
At home, this is a different Temple team that will get the production out of the passing game that Georgia Tech won’t. However, this is still a decent Yellow Jacket team with the ACC talent to at least hang around.
