The announced attendance for Saturday’s homecoming game against Pittsburgh was 41,219 which is one of the lowest in 25 years for a homecoming game, according to the article. With the loss on Saturday, the Yellow Jackets fell to 2-6 on the season. With a record like that, it’s understandable that fair-weather fans not attending could account for the low attendance, but it’s still disappointing that there wasn’t a better turnout. Part of the team’s problem continues to be the offense struggling to find its footing. On a positive note, the defense did play well forcing three turnovers.
The Yellow Jackets volleyball team is on a roll having won its eighth conference game in a row. This comes after a Sunday victory over NC State in Raleigh, North Carolina. Congratulations to the volleyball team!
Here’s some of the post-game comments from the head coaches of Tech and Pitt, respectively. Focusing more on Collins’ comments, Tech’s offense continues to struggle figuring out how to move the ball down the field. Part of this can be attributed to the absence of a run-game, part of it due to quarterback inconsistency in passing. Tech will be on the road to face off against Virginia this Saturday.
Speaking of the Virginia game, the Cavaliers are huge favorites going into the week. They are 16.5-point favorites to beat the Yellow Jackets. It doesn’t exactly come as a surprise, given the season Virginia is having versus the Yellow Jackets’ own struggles this season. Still, it would make a victory that much more sweeter for the Yellow Jackets.
