The Virginia Tech Hokies and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets clash Saturday in week 10 ACC college football action at Lane Stadium. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets need a win after losing 4 of their last 6 games. The Virginia Tech Hokies look to snap a 5-game losing streak.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have lost 5 of their last 6 road games. Jeff Sims is completing 58.5 percent of his passes for 1,115 yards, 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Nate McCollum and E.J. Jenkins have combined for 612 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Malachi Carter has 14 receptions. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ground game is averaging 130.1 yards per contest, and Hassan Hall leads the way with 417 yards on 83 carries. Defensively, Georgia Tech is allowing 28.1 points and 426 yards per game. Ayinde Eley leads the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets with 82 tackles, Keion White has 4 sacks and Charlie Thomas has 2 interceptions.

The Virginia Tech Hokies have lost 5 of their last 8 home games. Grant Wells is completing 58.7 percent of his passes for 1,682 yards, 8 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Kaleb Smith and Da’Wain Lofton have combined for 744 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Nick Gallo has 23 receptions. The Virginia Tech Hokies ground game is averaging 101.5 yards per contest, and Keshawn King leads the way with 259 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Virginia Tech is allowing 24.8 points and 357.1 yards per game. Dax Hollifield leads the Virginia Tech Hokies with 59 tackles, TyJuan Garbutt has 3.5 sacks and Armani Chatman has 1 interception.

The Yellow Jackets are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 conference games and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Hokies are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Yellow Jackets last 10 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Hokies last 8 games overall. The Yellow Jackets are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Virginia Tech. The underdog is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 meetings.

I’m not running to the window to lay chalk with the Virginia Tech Hokies who can’t get out of their own way, but they were competitive in their last effort and playing in Blacksburg is still no easy task. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets don’t do anything right on either side of the ball, and that includes being ranked 118th in total offense and 127th in scoring offense. If Virginia Tech cant win this game by a touchdown at home, something is seriously wrong. Give me the Hokies and the reasonable number.
