Both of these teams are looking for better 2020s. Florida State is excited about its new coach.
Georgia Tech is still transitioning away from the option era under Paul Johnson, though as some point you have to give that up as an excuse.
A win would be huge for the Jackets and necessary for FSU. Or else things get a little uncomfortable for Mike Norvell off the hop.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
This is year 2 of the Geoff Collins era. Last year they were 3-9 while finishing last in scoring and total offense in the ACC.
Per the above, they want to attach that to transitioning to a more modern offense but at some point you have to just stop explaining and play. Top quarterback James Graham completed less than 50% of his passes.
Even though they were not an option team last year the running game was the best part of the offense, ranking 8th in the conference. Jordan Mason is a nice running back
On defense, they are much better on the backend than upfront. The entire five-man secondary returns from last year led by Tre Swilling one of the best corners in the conference.
I am not very optimistic that the Yellow Jackets are going to show much growth this season. This game is likely to be a harbinger of what to expect all season.
Florida State Seminoles
The messiness at Florida State of late is well documented. The question now is whether they are back on the right path with Mike Norvell at the controls. I like the hire a lot but how much development we are going to see in year one has to be stunted by the circumstances.
Norvell is an offense fist coach who had a lot of success at Memphis. He has an experienced quarterback to work with but James Blackman is probably not the best QB on the roster. I am curious to see who plays in the opener.
Receiver Tamorrion Terry is the best player on the team. He averaged close to 20 yards per reception last season with 9 TDs. As long as they remember that they can be solid on offense.
FSU at its height was always among the best defensive teams in the nation. They were only middle of the pack in the ACC last year even though they have some next-level players like Marvin WIlson. That area has to improve this season too.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
Both of these teams are works in progress. I like Collins a lot but I have no clue where they are really at with their program right now. At FSU they have always had talent, it is just a matter of maximizing it,
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: FSU -12.5
I am breaking this one down like this. Even though Florida State is not where they want to be they can win each half by a touchdown in this one.
One thing in our favour is that if this one does get out of hand I think we will see the main contributors longer as everyone needs the game reps for sure. Less backdoor cover concern.
