In a game from NCAA Football Week 9, we will see Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech.
The Yellow Jackets could’ve pulled an upset on Duke if it wasn’t for their turnovers last week. They are running a triple-option oriented attack and the most damage they do is on the ground. Their QB TaQuon Marshall completed just 5 out of 11 passes last week for 91 yards and a touchdown. Jerry Howard led the team in rushing with 62 yards and a TD. Georgia Tech is averaging 37.4 points per game while allowing 28.3.
Virginia Tech are coming off a bye and they should be well rested and prepared for this one. They managed to beat North Carolina in their last outing by 22-19 when they made a fantastic comeback with just 19 seconds left on the clock. The Hokies are ranked are ranked second in their conference in passing offense and third in total offense. They are almost perfect in the red zone, converting on 20 out of 21 attempts. They are also averaging 33 points per game.
Virginia Tech already defeated 2 ranked teams on the road and you must love the fact that the spread is so little. They are allowing just 123 yards per game on the ground and given the fact that they will be playing against an offense that likes to run the football, I believe they can neutralize them and cover the spread easily.
