Virginia Cavaliers (2-2) vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-2)

Saturday, October 9, 2010 3:30PM EST

Line: Georgia Tech -10

In this crucial ACC meeting, Georgia Tech comes in as substantial favorites over a solid Virginia team. The Yellow Jackets had a late comeback win last week against Wake Forest. The team’s quarterback, Joshua Nesbitt connected with his receiver Correy Earls on a slant route for a late touchdown with only 15 seconds left on the clock. The win was much needed by Georgia Tech, as their sixth ranked offense in rushing yards head back home for a clash with the Cavaliers.

Keys to the Game:

–          The team has been relying on Nesbitt for most of the season, and the senior quarterback has done an average job overall. Nesbitt has only thrown 64 passes, completing 25 of them for 5 touchdowns and 1 interception so far this season. His receivers, Roddy Jones and Stephen Hill have seen the ball sparingly this season.

–          Virginia’s 34-14 loss to Florida State last weekend has drained their confidence. But the team is still a force to be reckoned with. Keith Payne and Perry Jones have done a good job providing this team with a respectable running game to help accompany their passing attack behind Marc Verica.

–          Georgia Tech’s running game has been one of their best weapons. They currently have six players who’ve rushed for more than 100 yards this season. The running attack is led by Nesbitt, who’s run for 434 yards and a team-high six touchdowns. Their second option when running the football has been Anthony Allen, the senior running back has 61 carries for 330 yards this season.

Look for the Virginia Cavaliers to put up a good contest. Their losses have come from strong teams in Florida State and USC. They should be able to stay neck to neck with the Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech’s recent success came late last weekend, and it doesn’t look like the team has much to offer when Nesbitt is struggling.
