Bet Jacksonville State at Georgia Tech

Johnson led the Yellowjackets to a 9-4 record in 2008 in his first year as coach. The 9-4 mark was the best record for Georgia Tech since 2000. This year, the Yellowjackets open the 2009 season ranked 15th in the nation and have 18 starters back from last season. Georgia Tech averaged 273 yards rushing per-game in 2008 and have their top five rushers back this season, led by preseason ACC Player of the Year, Jonathan Dwyer, who rushed for 1,395 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2008. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt is also back, but Nesbitt threw for just 808 yards last season, but did rush for 693 yards with seven touchdowns. On defense, Georgia Tech has safety Morgan Burnett back. Burnett co-led the nation in interceptions last season with seven, to go along with 93 tackles.

Jacksonville State is ranked 19th in the Football Championship Subdivision after finishing 8-3 in 2008. The Gamecocks will be without starting quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who is suspended for the game for violating team rules. Perrilloux was a former LSU quarterback, but was kicked off the team for a similar offense. Sophomore Marques Ivory will start in Perrilloux’s place. Ivory threw for 127 yards and two touchdowns in four games last season.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have not released a point-spread for Saturday’s game.
