Georgia Tech vs Virginia Tech Game Preview
Why Georgia Tech Will Win
Jeff Sims should be back.
The star quarterback had foot issues and missed the Florida State game and most of the loss to Virginia. The O didn’t do much without him, and the team needs his rushing to crank things up.
It’s this simple for the Yellow Jackets – they’re 3-0 when the run for 180 yards or more, and ran for fewer than 125 yards in all five losses. The Virginia Tech run defense has been fine, but that’s partly because everyone is too busy throwing it.
Why Virginia Tech Will Win
Only West Virginia and Pitt were able to run for more than 180 yards on the Hokie defense.
The offense is sputtering, but the D has been able to hold up enough to keep the team in most games. Georgia Tech’s offense isn’t going to run away and hide with this.
Things have started to slip over the last few weeks, but North Carolina, West Virginia, and Pitt can all get the offense moving. Even with Sims, Georgia Tech is awful on third downs, doesn’t come up with enough points when the chances are there, and overall averages an ACC-low 306 yards per game.
What’s Going To Happen
Which team can make fewer mistakes and which one can take advantage of the errors on the other side? Georgia Tech is better at limiting the turnovers and penalties.
First one to 20 wins?
This should be interesting and tight, but look elsewhere if you want an offensive firefight.
