Clemson and Georgia Tech Meet in Prime-time

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the 7th-ranked Clemson Tigers  meet at Memorial Stadium in Clemson. ABC will televise the game nationally and kickoff is set for a few minutes after 8 pm EST.

Since losing back-to-back at N.C. State and South Carolina to end the 2011 regular season, Clemson is 10-0 following a loss. The Tigers have gone a school-record 78 consecutive games without losing two in a row.

Oddsmakers have the Tigers as 14-point favorites. The total is at 49.5.

Clemson hopes that some lessons are learned when the Tigers play a Georgia Tech team that could easily be undefeated. Coach Paul Johnson’s Yellow Jackets lost a 42-41 double-overtime decision against Tennessee in their season opener. They then had a 25-24 loss at Miami on Oct. 14.

Something will have to give on Saturday night. The Yellow Jackets rank second in the nation averaging of 372.8 rushing yards per game. Clemson’s rushing defense allows only 107.9 yards per game.  That ranks 13th nationally.

Georgia Tech averages 5.78 yards per rush, which is 12th in the nation. Clemson is eighth in yards allowed per rush at 2.90.

Clemson Uses Bye Week to Prepare for Triple-Option

In their last action, Clemson was a 27-24 loser on the road against the Syracuse Orange. They failed to cover the -23.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (51) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

The Tigers’ offense depends on the health of quarterback Kelly Bryant. He sustained an ankle injury against Wake Forest on Oct. 7. He was also knocked out of the Syracuse game late in the second quarter with a concussion.

The junior has rushed for 393 yards and passed for 1,375. He is expected to start.

Georgia Tech has High-Powered Offense

Georgia Tech was a 38-24 winner as they battled the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at home. The Yellow Jackets covered in the match as a -3.5-point favorite, while 62 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Three Georgia Tech offensive linemen have been honored as ACC Lineman of the Week this season. Right guard Shamire Devine was the latest recipient. The senior had 10 knockdown blocks in last week’s victory against Wake Forest. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 427 yards.

Quarterback TaQuon Marshall and sophomore B-back KirVonte Benson have been the main beneficiaries of the Yellow Jackets’ offensive line. Marshall leads the league in rushing at 117.3 yards per game. Benson is second at 108.7. They have combined for 16 touchdowns.

Clemson has fared quite well against Georgia Tech’s offense in recent years. In the past two meetings the Tigers have held the Yellow Jackets to a combined 166 yards on 80 carries.

Georgia Tech is 5-5 against Clemson since Johnson was named head coach. The Tigers have won four of the past five matchups since hiring defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
