Georgia Tech opened their 2015 trek for a spot in the BCS Playoff as the #15 team in the nation welcomes in Tulane for their 2nd straight home contest.
Georgia Tech used their dominant triple option offense to route Alcorn State 69-6.
Tulane was just the opposite in their Week 1 clash with Duke. The Green Wave were ran over by Duke 37-7 on their home field.
Tulane will have the tough task of preparing and finding a way to stop the Yellow Jackets threatening offensive fire power.
Tulane will certainly be coming into this contest on Saturday with very little confidence and momentum. Against a team that doesn’t pride themselves on running the ball, Tulane allowed Duke to rush for 206 yards.
They’ll know had to adjust to an offense that will be running the ball on essentially every single play.
If defense wasn’t a problem enough, the offense struggled throughout the entire game against Duke. The Green Wave was just 2 of 14 on third downs and continuously had their defense running onto the field with the short time of possession.
Tulane also only rushed for 25 yards in their Week 1 performance. The offensive line got zero push and gave the backs zero lanes to work it.
The Green Wave will be looking for their first win against a ranked opponent since 1982 when they knocked off LSU.
It’s safe to say that no team in the NCAA can perfect the triple option like Georgia Tech has.
They showed off their abilities in Week 1 as they racked up 476 yards and 9 touchdowns, all on the ground en route to their blowout win. The Yellow Jackets attempted just 5 passes in against Alcorn State
Georgia Tech will try to repeat their performance last year, in Tulane, that saw them cruise to a 38-21 win behind 344 rush yards and converting 80% of their 3rd downs.
Leading the charge in Week 1 for the Yellow Jackets rush attack was Freshman Marcus Marshal who ran for 184 yards on only 8 carries.
