The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will look to avoid a three game losing streak when they take on the Pittsburgh Panthers this Saturday at Heinz field.
Georgia Tech started this season solid with a 3-0 record before losing to both Clemson and Miami.
They will try to bounce back this weekend in order to stay above .500.
The Pittsburgh Panthers were able to bring there own two game losing streak to a screeching halt last week with a 43-29 victory over Marshall.
They will look to keep the momentum building when they host the Yellow Jackets Saturday.
Ejuan Price of the Pittsburgh Panthers currently leads the country in both tackles for loss (11.5), and sacks with 7.5. So far he has been able to come up with at least one sack in each of the Panthers games during the 2016 season.
Price was able to dominate last week against Marshall, racking up both two sacks and tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
The defense isn’t the only area where the Panthers have super star talent.
In his sophomore year, wide receiver Quadree Henderson has already accumulated 937 all-purpose yards.
The 187.4 all-purpose yards he has averaged per game currently ranks him at 5th in the country and number on in the ACC.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Yellow Jackets lost 35-21 to the Miami Hurricanes, but the team is a lot better than the score might indicate.
When you consider the fact that Miami had been scoring 51 points per game, a lot can be said about the strength of the Georgia Tech defense.
The Canes had also been averaging 514 yards of total offense per contest, and the Yellow Jackets stepped up tp the plate and held them to 355.
Georgia Tech’s freshman running back, Dedrick Mills, will look to continue maturing after the most productive game of his young career last week.
Against the Hurricanes, Mills had 19 carries for a total of 99 yards on the ground. He was also able to find the endzone on three different occasions last week for the Yellow Jackets, two on the ground and one reception.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
The Georgia Tech offense rarely calls a play that requires their quarterback to drop back into the backfield, which should have an effect of the efficiency of Ejuan Price and the Panther defense.
After the game that Mills was able to put together last week, Georgia Tech should be more than willing to trust the kid to control the game on the ground this week.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia Tech +8
I am not sure the Yellow Jackets secondary will be strong enough to keep the Panthers offense from winning the game, but I do believe they will be able to keep things close and keep the score within 8 points.
Pittsburgh hasn’t been strong covering the spread in last seven games and I don’t look for that to change this week against the Yellow Jackets.
