Over on the Hokies’ side, they’re sitting at 4-2 on the year. Virginia Tech has losses to Notre Dame and Old Dominion this season, but has taken out Florida State, William & Mary, Duke and North Carolina. 

In the Tar Heels game, Virginia Tech QB Ryan Willis put up 221 yards with two TDs and two picks, and also led the rush on 88 yards with one TD. Sean Savoy was the leading receiver for the Hokies with his 58 yards and one TD from six receptions. 

The Yellow Jackets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five in October and 2-7 ATS in their last nine overall. Georgia Tech is 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games. 

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 home games and 1-4 ATS versus a team with a losing record. The under is 21-5 in the Hokies’ last 26 Thursday games and 16-5 in their last 21 games in October. 

Georgia Tech is kind of an all-or-nothing type team; they destroy teams who aren’t equipped for their run-heavy option onslaught and struggle against defenses who are ready for it. Marshall rushed 16 times against Duke and averaged just 2.6 YPC, which is an extremely down day for him. 

As for the Hokies, they’ve been pretty solid offensively overall this season and haven’t really been destroyed by anyone except the Irish. Even if the Jackets find some room I think VT can cover it on the other side. I’m going Hokies here.
