Game Preview and Score Prediction:

As the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets play host to the South Florida Bulls, there are plenty of reasons to be excited as a Tech fan. As I talked about last week, Tech has already shown a lot of progress under new head coach Geoff Collins. This week, though, we’ll hopefully be getting a few more questions answered.

What’s happening at quarterback?

This is the question at the top of everybody’s list. Against Clemson, we saw Tobias Oliver, Lucas Johnson, and James Graham all play. I think we’ll continue to see that this week. I know it’s a little frustrating, but I think Georgia Tech will keep shuffling quarterbacks until one definitively wins the job.

Is Tech gonna pass the ball more?

Going into the game last week, many—myself included—expected Tech to pass the ball a little more. Tech threw the ball 18 times, split among three quarterbacks. I expect Tech to still throw the ball 18-25 times, but it will still be a run-heavy offense.

Special Teams?

I don’t need to remind anyone how special teams essentially cost Tech this game last year, so can Georgia Tech avoid that same trouble this year? I sure hope so. Kickoff coverage didn’t seem like it had improved much last week, so it’ll be one thing that will keep Tech fans a little nervous the whole game.

The Trenches

Georgia Tech has a much more manageable battle in the trenches this week, compared to last week against Clemson. On offense, getting proper protection up front will be the key to seeing Georgia Tech open up its playbook. On defense, Geoff Collins will need to attack a young USF offensive line and disrupt Blake Barnett.

Score Prediction

I talked about this a little on the podcast last week, but I think Tech rolls to a pretty easy victory here. Tech has some pretty talented skill players that I think could take advantage of USF’s defense, similar to how Wisconsin did in its 49-0 rout of the Bulls. Tech’s defense isn’t as strong as Wisconsin’s, so I think it’ll be a little closer, but I think it’s the Yellow Jackets who come home with the win, 38-13.

How do you see Tech’s game against USF going?
