This is an interesting game for both sides. The question is what do we really know, or don’t about both sides.
UCF has yet to play a game but given what we have seen over the last 5 seasons we should feel pretty comfortable about them winning on the road in the ACC.
Georgia Tech got that win against Florida State. A positive sign for sure but can we bank on them yet.
The Knights won 10 games last year and their three losses were all on the road by a combined 7 points. The point is this program is definitely not slipping.
Dillon Gabriel was just a frosh last year and he struggled in those aforementioned games. 7 other starters return on offense, a very experienced group that should once again be a top-scoring team in the country.
The defense returns 8 starters from a year ago with the strength being at the backend. Safety Antwan Collier had four picks a year ago and the Knights were stingy against the run and the pass.
This is the first game of the season so there could definitely be some rust given the circumstances. That being said the enthusiasm for hitting the field could be electric even on the road.
I wish the Knights had a game under their belt for a little more certainty but there is still a lot to like with this group.
I want Georgia Tech to be good (and kind of enjoy Florida State being bad) so seeing them beat FSU was great. The narrative that they should have crushed the Noles is being spread this week which makes me nervous about backing them, even here at home.
Let’s not forget that their quarterback is still just a freshman. Yes, he almost went to FSU which makes the whole story there even sweeter.
The strength of Tech is supposed to be their defense, which returned 7 starters from a year ago. It very well may be, but I am not sold on just beating FSU. This group gave up 32ppg a year ago.
When it comes to the Yellow Jackets there are lots of positive indicators but I urge people to go slow with their support.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick
A road favorite in a game where the dogs have a game under their belt and are feeling good but I am still going with the Knights here. They have proven a lot over the last five seasons.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Knights -7.5
That hook is never fun so this one is probably going to wind up in a lot of teasers as a result. I am just more trusting of the UCF offense. They have proven they can move the ball against anybody.
Georgia Tech got a freebie last week. They were in a perfect situation where they couldn’t really lose. There is going to be pressure this week against a good team. I am not sure they are ready for it.
