Both Georgia Tech and Jacksonville State are coming off of their season debuts and both teams have high aspirations for the season in front of them.
The Yellow Jackets are fresh off a season in which they finished 9-4 and ended their season with a bowl win over Kentucky.
The Gamecocks look to repeat on their 2016 success after a 10-2 season and an Ohio Valley conference championship.
Jacksonville State Gamecocks
Jacksonville State started the season as the #6 ranked team in the FCS after three straight conference championships a strong showing in 2016 that saw their season end in the second round of the FCS playoffs.
The Gamecocks opened their season and the FCS season at home against the Chattanooga Mocs in which they won handily 27-13.
They were led by former Auburn 5-star recruit Roc Thomas who rushed for 122 yards and also got a strong debut from QB Bryant Horn who was an efficient 14-20 for 182 yards.
However defense was the story for the Gamecocks as they only allowed a touchdown in the closing minutes of the game when many of the starters were off the field.
Their game against Georgia Tech however will prove a challenging one, they’ll be on the road for the first time of the season and will also be facing off against their one and only FBS opponent of the season.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgia Tech opened their season on a Monday night against SEC opponent the Tennessee Volunteers and lost by a final score of 42-41.
They went for two during the second overtime and didn’t convert so that ended up costing them the game. They showed a lot in that game though, and Tennessee had no answer for the triple option attack.
They opened up some really big holes and during the second half the only thing that could stop the Yellow Jackets was a couple of costly turnovers that ended up losing them the game in the end.
In this game they need to limit the turnovers. They can’t keep shooting themselves in the foot deep in drives, like they did against the Volunteers.
Over the past 7 seasons, Georgia Tech has scheduled FCS teams early in the season and has yet to lose one of those games and many of those results were blowouts.
However last seasons results versus both Mercer and Georgia Southern were closer than the Yellow Jackets would have preferred.

I think the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are the better team in this match up, but they are really going to have to self motivate, as this game isn’t as big as the game in week one.
