Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgia Tech senior QB TaQuon Marshall threw for 37 yards on 1-for-8 passing and ran for 107 yards and a score in a 30-27 overtime victory over Virginia on Saturday. Marshall looked awful throwing the football all game, but the game tied at 24-24 late in the fourth, he hit Brad Stewart for a 37-yard completion that set up what looked to be the game-winning field goal. It turns out the game-winner would come in overtime, but Marshall once again was impressive running the option, and gives the red-hot Yellow Jackets their seventh win of the season. Things will be much tougher next week against rival Georgia next Saturday.
Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields completed 5-of-8 passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 100 yards and one touchdown on seven carries in Saturday's 66-27 win over UMass. Fields showed off his ability to create explosive plays as a passer and runner in this one. The freshman quarterback threw a strike while getting hit for his first passing touchdown before launching a dime down the opposite sideline for a 57-yard score. Fields also had a nice spin move on a read-option carry for a short rushing touchdown to round out his huge game. Georgia will have both Justin Fields and Jake Fromm next week against Georgia Tech before playing Alabama on December 1st.
The over is 6-2-1 in the Yellow Jackets’ last nine games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
The under is 4-1-1 in the Bulldogs’ last six games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and with the Yellow Jackets’ running game, the clock should be constantly moving. The under is also 5-1 in the Bulldogs’ last six games versus the ACC, is 6-2 in their last eight non-conference games and 20-7-1 in their last 28 home games.
