Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The first time you watch the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this season you might have to squint to make sure the TV isn’t messing up.
For years under Paul Johnson they ran the triple option, but this year they are going to a more balanced attack this season.
The good news for the Yellow Jackets is that there isn’t much film on this team, so that could give them an advantage this season.
Even though this isn’t the triple-option attack, they still have a nice stable of running backs that should be leaned on this year.
I also expect this defense is going to be better with the secondary being the strength. There could be some growing pains this season but a good showing even in a loss could give this team confidence going forward.
On the other side of this matchup is the Clemson Tigers who won the National Championship last year and have similar expectations for this season.
Trevor Lawrence is still the main talking point of this team but there might need to be more attention on the defense that should be loaded again this year.
This is a defense that gave up only 16 points to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship game and I would expect that defense is going to be elite again.
The defensive line did lose some key pieces but this team has been known to reload rather than rebuild, and I think that will be the case again this year.
In this game for the Tigers, they shouldn’t be trying to just win, they need to try and run up the score and make a statement.
