In NCAA Football game, we will see Minnesota at Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech entered the season with hopes of competing in the ACC. The team managed to qualify for a bowl game this season, even though it finished 6-6. The triple option rushing attack they have has been led by multiple quarterbacks this season. TaQuon Marshall rushed for 896 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns while throwing for 5 touchdowns. Tobias Oliver, on the other side, has thrown 2 touchdown passes while gaining 807 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.
Minnesota also had hopes for a bowl game entering the season as they missed out on it last year. They had two chances to qualify for a bowl game last year and they failed to win in either of the games while this year they beat a very tough Wisconsin side while being 5-5, in order to get to this bowl game. The offense is led by the freshman running back Mohamed Ibrahim who has 936 rushing yards and he is an integral part of their offense because the quarterback play has been awful.
Both teams have good offenses but they are very different. Minnesota wins games only when the team controls the clock and I do not see that happening against a side which is loaded with talent on offense and likes to run the football. Georgia Tech are the better side and will cover the spread with ease.
