The Quick Lane Bowl features the Minnesota Golden Gophers out of the Big Ten and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets out of the ACC.
These teams do not have a prior meeting and will be looking for bragging rights in this bowl game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Golden Gophers were 6-6 overall and 3-6 in Big Ten play. At the very least they ended their season by blowing out Wisconsin. This win was huge for their program an allowed them to be in this bowl game. They now can finish this season with a winning record if they can manage to contain the triple option and take down Georgia Tech.
The Golden Gophers offense has been well below average this season. They rank 70th or worse in majority of the offensive categories. The biggest threat for the Golden Gophers this year has been wide receiver, Tyler Johnson. Johnson has 1112 receiving yards and 10 total touchdown. He is averaging 15 yards per catch and could be in store for a huge game.
The problem is Minnesota has two different quarterbacks who have seen a lot of game time. Both have struggled this season, so depending which quarterback shows up in this game will decide if Minnesota has a success.
The biggest question for the Golden Gophers is their run defense. They rank 76th in the country and will need to dramatically improve this if they are going to shut down the triple option.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Yellow Jackets ended this year by getting blasted by their rival, Georgia Bulldogs. Since then head coach, Paul Johnson has announced his retirement. He will in fact coach this bowl game, so the players will have an incentive to win this game as they see their coach out.
It is no surprise that the Yellow Jackets have the top rushing attack in the country due to their style of offense. They will need to establish this run early, something they did not do against Georgia if they are going to find success. Look for quarterback, TaQuon Marshall to have a solid day running the ball and actually have an okay day throwing the ball too.
The Tech defense is average at best this season. They allow 28.9 points per game, which is 80th in the country. Luckily for them they will be going up against a low tier Big Ten team, so as long as they can pressure the Minnesota quarterback they will likely force a turnover or two.

This game will mean more to Georgia Tech as it is Paul Johnson’s last game. The Yellow Jackets run all over a weak Minnesota defense and win the Quick Lane Bowl.
