This afternoon, Georgia Tech will open a tough four-game stretch after warm-up games against Elon and Duke. The next four games come against divisional opponents UNC, Virginia Tech, and then Miami, before they travel to Provo, UT to take on BYU. Today's game is a rematch of last year's game that finished with a combined 118 points, as Tech rolled 68-50 in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels bring an up-tempo offense led by senior QB Bryn Renner and TE Eric Ebron, while the Jackets look to counter with a defense led by senior DE Jeremiah Attaochu and senior LB Brandon Watts.
Previews: Our own Wes Simms did a great preview of the opponent and what we should expect to see on Saturday. Meanwhile, there's a really interesting look at the UNC-GT series in the Paul Johnson era over at Tar Heel Blog which I'd recommend checking out.
