Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs Air Force Falcons

Monday December 27, 2010 5:00 PM EST

Line: Air Force -3

Air Force hit a tough stretch in their season when they played at a tough San Diego State, then at ranked TCU, and then home vs ranked Utah. They overcame that rough patch, and finished their season with 3 straight wins. Georgia Tech on the other hand lost 4 of their last 5, and the one team they beat were the lonely Blue Devils.

Stats to consider:

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets:

  • Georgia Tech is 6-6.
  • Points for per game: 27.6 (54th)
  • Points against per game: 26.2 (60th)
  • Passing yards a game: 87.5 (119th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 327 (1st)

Air Force Falcons:

  • Air Force is 8-4.
  • Points for per game: 32.3 (32nd)
  • Points against per game: 22.3 (37th)
  • Passing yards a game: 119.5 (117th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 317.9 (2nd)

What to watch for:

  • If you like watching QBs throw the ball all over the field, this is not the bowl for you. Both QBs are 2nd on their respective teams in rushing yards. Georgia Tech Senior QB Joshua Nesbitt has rushed for 737 yards and 10 TDs. Air Force Junior QB Tim Jefferson has rushed for 769 yards and 15 TDs.
  • Air Force Junior RB Asher Clark leads his team with 1,001 yards and 5 TDs.
  • Georgia Tech Senior RB Anthony Allen has rushed for 1,225 yards and 6 TDs.

This football pick will come down to which team can stop the other’s rushing attack. These two teams are 1 and 2 in rushing yards per game, while being in the bottom 5 in passing yards a game. Air Force has outscored Georgia Tech in both scoring offense and defense. Look for Air Force to come in and play a very physical game, while both teams load the box and force some throwing in this one.
