The Florida State Seminoles and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets clash Saturday in week 9 ACC college football action at Doak Campbell Stadium. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets look to get back to a .500 record. The Florida State Seminoles look to snap a 3-game losing streak.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have lost 5 of their last 7 road games. Jeff Sims is completing 58.5 percent of his passes for 1,115 yards, 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Nate McCollum and Malachi Carter have combined for 546 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while E.J. Jenkins has 11 receptions. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ground game is averaging 153.2 yards per contest, and Hassan Hall leads the way with 377 yards on 73 carries. Defensively, Georgia Tech is allowing 28 points and 392.5 yards per game. Ayinde Eley leads the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets with 71 tackles, Keion White has 4 sacks and Charlie Thomas has 2 interceptions.

The Florida State Seminoles have won 5 of their last 8 home games. Jordan Travis is completing 61.6 percent of his passes for 1,661 yards, 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Johnny Wilson and Ontaria Wilson have combined for 788 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Mycah Pittman has 22 receptions. The Florida State Seminoles ground game is averaging 204.4 yards per contest, and Treshaun Ward leads the way with 488 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Florida State is allowing 22.7 points and 332 yards per game. Jammie Robinson leads the Florida State Seminoles with 51 tackles, Jared Verse has 4 sacks and Kevin Knowles II has 1 interception.

The Yellow Jackets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in October and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Seminoles are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 8-1 in Yellow Jackets last 9 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Seminoles last 11 games overall. The Yellow Jackets are 6-0-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

The Florida State Seminoles are the clear better team, and they’re coming off a ridiculously tough schedule, so you can’t be too harsh about these last few games. However, laying more than 3 full touchdowns isn’t what I’m trying to do with an FSU that still has issues finishing drives offensively and can’t stop the run defensively. Yes, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have many things to work on in their own right, but they do find ways to hang around. Six of the yellow Jackets last 10 losses have been decided by 17 or fewer points. It’s Georgia Tech or pass for me.
