This Weeks Match-up against #19 Georgia Tech vs. #4 Virginia Tech has both teams practicing hard after big wins last Saturday. This game is vital for both teams ACC title hopes.
Both offenses have been performing extremely well in recent games. Georgia Tech Has scored over 40 points in their last two games, and Virginia Tech destroyed a good Boston College team 48-14 last week.
Defense is another story. Virginia Tech has had an outstanding defense this year, Holding Miami to only 7 points. Georgia Tech has not been doing so well in defense having let FSU (2-4) Rack-Up 44 points on them, and Mississippi State Scored 31.
But will Virginia Tech bee ready for Georgia Tech's Triple Option offense? Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech Head Coach, State in an interview today on ESPN that their defense has studied the option all summer and that a team would need "Three to four weeks in order to prepare for the triple option." Virginia Tech Only Has one week.
This Game will be an offensive shoot-out with Virginia Tech's special teams "Beamer Ball" Scoring 24 points. VA Techs defense, however, will not be able to stop Georgia Tech's Offense.
Georgia Tech will establish a strong running game early and go to the air some later. GA Techs Defense will Have Trouble Stopping Virginia Tech's Offense but will have a few game changing stops in the 4th quarter.
