Geo. Tech vs. N. Dame Injuries
No. 8 Notre Dame is dealing with far more injuries than it expected at this point of the season. What’s the latest for their game with No. 14 Georgia Tech on Saturday?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Georgia Tech is currently listed as a 2.5-point favorite against Notre Dame on the road. The over/under total is listed at 55 points. These two will meet on Saturday at 3:30PM ET on NBC.
When it comes to the injuries for the Irish, they have already suffered two huge season-ending ones. First game to running back Tarean Folston, who suffered a knee injury in the season opener against Texas. Folston rushed for 19 yards on three carries prior to getting hurt. He had 889 rushing yards and six touchdowns in 2014. An even bigger injury came last week when quarterback Malik Zaire suffered a fractured ankle against Virginia and will miss the rest of the season. Zaire had thrown for 428 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 103 yards in two games.
Georgia Tech has three listed on the injury report as running back Quiade Weimerskirch is questionable with a foot injury while quarterback Tim Byerly (leg) is out and quarterback Chase Martenson (undisclosed) is questionable. Byerly is the only one that has seen action this season, but it was in mop-up duty.
