Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Tech is now in season three with Geoff Collins in charge. And after a 7-17 start, Collins is beginning to feel job pressure each week his Jackets take the field. Offensive and defensive blunders characterized 2020 GT football. The learning curve proved steep for frosh QB Jeff Sims as he tossed 13 picks while completing just 54 percent of his passes during a 3-9 campaign.
Unheralded Northern Illinois exploited Tech’s misgivings for a 22-21 week 1 upset. However, a silver lining might’ve shone that Saturday as Jordan Yates took over behind center for ineffective Sims. Yates completed 17 of 23 with four touchdowns and 254 yards during Tech’s recent 45-17 mastery of Kennesaw State.
While defending ACC champ Clemson poses an altogether sterner test than KSU, at least the Jackets have feint hope their new QB can do the unthinkable this weekend.
Minus Trevor Lawrence and Cliff Etienne, Clemson failed its week 1 test 10-3 vs. defensive powerhouse UGA. This week, however, after stampeding South Carolina State 49-3, the Tigers aim for revenge against the peach state.
Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei continued hands- on learning while completing 14 of 24 for one score and one pick against the SC Bulldogs. In spite of an average aerial performance, the Tigers backfield piled five touchdowns on 242 yards with Will Shipley leading the way.
Overall, Clemson added 504 balanced yards and held SC State to 235 yards. The Tigers gained 10.5 tackles for loss during a cool-down session last Saturday.
With the offense not yet hitting on all cylinders, conference foe Georgia Tech provides Clemson another easy target as the season builds momentum. This matchup will prove invaluable to the young Tigers quarterbacks while Dabo Swinney knows nothing less than a college football playoff berth is acceptable with his program’s set standard of excellence.
