Why NC State Will Win

The Georgia Tech offense simply isn’t doing enough consistently well to move the chains.

Even this late in the season, there’s nothing the O can count on and there’s still little to no passing game. Worst yet, when the team is gets its opportunities to score and gets into the red zone, it’s whiffing.

Dead last in the nation in red zone offense. the Yellow Jackets have come away empty in eight of their last 16 chances. The kicking game is struggling, there are too many turnovers, and the offense bogs down without any go-to big play element to turn to.

For all of NC State’s problems, the defensive line isn’t that awful. The run defense is giving up just 128 yards per game, and Georgia Tech hasn’t been able to get above 100 yards in two of its last three games, and hasn’t hit 50% of its passes in five of its last seven outings.

However …

Why Georgia Tech Will Win

NC State doesn’t take the ball away.

For all the pressure the defensive front is able to generate, it’s not leading to mistakes with just five takeaways on the season with none in the last six games.

Georgia Tech needs all the help it can get.

As mediocre as the Yellow Jacket offense has been, and as much of a problem as it has scoring, NC State is having just as many issues. It’s moving the ball, and it’s coming up with yards, but it can’t put the biscuit in the basket with 16 points or fewer in four of the last six games, and 24 points or fewer in each of the last six.

NC State is the exact right team for Georgia Tech to deal with at home. It’s not going to bust out with a big offensive performance to change the dynamic right away, and it’s not going to run well enough to control the clock.

The Pack have just one rushing touchdown in the last six games, and they’re not going to plow though this defensive front for a 200-yard outing.

What’s Going To Happen

It’s going to be about which side can get the right, fortunate breaks and capitalize on them. Neither team will do anything special offensively, and neither one will be able to take over to ever feel comfortable.

It won’t be pretty, but Georgia Tech will take it by being a +2 in turnover margin, and it’ll need the mistakes.
