Turnover Margin Per Game: Georgia +0.2 > Georgia Tech -0.8

Strength of schedule:

Georgia is (9-1) with wins over Appalachian State, Notre Dame, Samford, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Florida, South Carolina.  Their lone defeat came against Auburn.  Georgia Tech is (5-4) with wins over Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Jacksonville State.  They were defeated by Tennessee, Miami, Clemson, and Virginia.

Summary:

Georgia saw their nine-game winning streak come to an end when they traveled to Auburn and got destroyed 40-17.  Auburn outgained Georgia 488-230 in total yardage and won the possession battle by eight minutes.  Jake Fromm was 13-28 for 184 yards and a touchdown.  Georgia relies heavily on their run game which was completely shut down by Auburn.  The Bulldogs managed only 46 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries (1.4 average).  The Normally stout Georgia defense was gashed both on the ground and through the air.  Georgia ranks 47th in total offense (424.0 YPG) and 29th in points per game (34.6).  The Bulldogs rank 5th in scoring defense (14.5 PPG).

Georgia Tech was able to pull out an impressive 28-22 home victory over a ranked Virginia Tech team.  Georgia Tech outgained Virginia Tech 401-258 in total yardage.  TaQuon Marshall was 2-8 for 140 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.  The Yellow Jackets triple option attack totaled 261 yards and two touchdowns on 57 carries (4.6 average).   Georgia Tech ranks 51st in total offense (414.0 YPG) and 47th in points per game (31.6).  The Yellow Jackets rank 41st in scoring defense (23.4 PPG).

Bottom Line:

Though Georgia Tech has been beaten four times, three of those losses were by four or fewer points.  I think this will be a very competitive game because each team wants to impose their will running the football.  The Bulldogs have more talent on defense and should be able to stack the box against a one-dimensional offense.  Turnovers have been a problem for the Yellow Jackets and could be the difference in this one.  This will be a close game than many think, but I believe Georgia will bounce back and win this one at home.
