The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets come into today’s game aiming to finish out their 2016 season on a high note against the SEC’s Kentucky Wildcats. The Yellow Jackets (8-4) come in having won 5 of 6 games since starting 3-3, including wins over rivals Virginia Tech and georgia. The Wildcats (7-5) come in on a hot streak of their own, winners of 5 of 7 to close the season including most recently a win at the end of November over in-state rivals Louisville and their Heisman-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson. Both teams are proficient at running the ball, while passing and defense has routinely been an issue for both teams throughout the year.
