Notre Dame vs Georgia Tech Game Preview
Why Georgia Tech Will Win
Notre Dame. Georgia.
Georgia Tech gets to have a little fun over the next two games trying to make something weird happen in the College Football Playoff chase.

There should be decent offensive balance, the defense that’s playing well won’t allow too much through the air, and it’ll be on to Stanford with a shot at going 11-1 and putting the pressure on the College Football Playoff committee.
