The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets must win out if they’re going to reach a 19th straight bowl game. Justin Thomas is completing 43.6 percent of his passes for 1,166 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. Thomas has three touchdown passes in his last three games. Ricky Jeune and Clinton Lynch have combined for 623 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Micheal Summers has 12 receptions. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ground game is averaging 267.2 yards per contest, and Marcus Marshall leads the way with 531 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia Tech is allowing 26.1 points and 365 yards per game. P.J. Davis leads the Yellow Jackets with 63 tackles, D.J. White has two interceptions and Adam Gotsis has three sacks. A.J. Gray and Jabari Hunt-Days are out.
The Hokies are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 road games and 5-12-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Yellow Jackets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Hokies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Georgia Tech and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings overall.
Georgia Tech has simply been a mess and would have lost seven straight if it wasn't for a return blocked field goal against FSU. Virginia Tech has been solid since Brewer returned at QB, as the Hokies took Duke to overtime and crushed Boston College on the road. Also, the Hokies have that defense to shutdown the triple-option. I like Virginia Tech outright.
