The Florida A&M Rattlers have been badly outplayed in most of their games this season and they're one of the worst defensive teams in the country. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have been competitive through five games, which includes a win over Kentucky, and they have multiple players who can takeover offensively for them. Florida A&M is going to have a hard time keeping up with the scorers on the other side. I'll eat the chalk here.
