Marcus Marshall recorded 16 carries for 69 rushing yards as well. Brad Stewart and Ricky Jeune led the Yellow Jackets in receiving with a combined 2 catches for 69 yards. Georgia Tech who was coming off of a 5 game losing streak seemed to have found some life and will try to carry their momentum into this weekend when they take on Virginia.
Georgia Tech is 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 games following an against the spread win. The Yellow Jackets are 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games following a straight up win. Virginia is 3-8-2 against the spread in their last 13 games in October. Virginia is 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
Geogia Tech finally ended their losing streak and possibly turned their season around. Virginia on the other hand has not figured out how to win games lately. I think Georgia Tech will come into Virginia and win easily. Take Georgia Tech to cover on the road.
