This week's Brain Bowl features two ACC rivals as #12 Georgia Tech travels to Charlottesville, VA to take on the Virginia Cavaliers. Let's go to the tape:

 

2009 Record:

Tech: 6-1

UVA: 3-3

 

One year cost of attending:

Tech: $35,376 

UVA: $40,709

 

75th Percentile SAT Scores for Incoming Freshmen:

Tech: Reading 690, Math 730, Writing 670

UVA: Reading 710 Math 730 Writing 720

 

Percent of Applicants Admitted:

Tech: 63%

UVA:  37%

 

Male-to-Female Ratio (New Feature!!)

Tech: 70% male, 30% female

UVA: 44% female, 36% male

 

Enrollment:

Tech: 18,742

UVA: 24,257

 

 

Tech wins in the W-L category, is easier to get into and is cheaper, but they lose in the all important male-to-female ratio category. I like UVA +5.5 as they've beat or covered in four straight and are in desperate need of a signature win.

 

Overall Brain Bowl Record 2009: 4-3 (vs spread)
