This ACC matchup features the Cavaliers traveling to Atlanta to face the Yellow Jackets.
Virginia has lost 5 in a row and Georgia Tech lost badly to UNC last week.
Coach Mendenhall finally pulled the plug on transfer QB Kurt Benkert. Matt Johns will be the starter going forward.
Last season he played pretty average for the Cavaliers, finishing the season with 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
Against the Yellow Jackets I don’t expect him to get many opportunities with the ball, so he shouldn’t have a big game.
Taquan Mizzell has been the only bright spot for Virginia during this 5 game losing streak.
During this span he has averaged over 80 yards rushing per game. The smart thing for the Virginia coaching staff to do would be to get him the ball 30+ times to keep Johns from making any big mistakes, and keep the Yellow Jackets option offense off the field.
I don’t see that happening so expect modest numbers from the back.
Olamide Zaccheaus was the bright spot in the passing game last week, and this week the Yellow Jackets secondary will have to play great to keep him from making plays all over the field.
I predict 5 catches for 95 yards and a score from the sophomore out of Philadelphia.
The Cavaliers couldn’t stop the Hurricanes last week on the ground or through the air. Potential 1st round pick Brad Kaaya had 2 touchdown passes, and Mark Walton ran for 111 yards and a score.
If the defense doesn’t focus on stopping the option attack, the Yellow Jackets may put up 45 on them.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Paul Johnson’s option attack gives every defense it faces headaches. It is simply hard to prepare for and hard to stop when the QB can run it effectively.
In the loss to UNC Justin Thomas had a poor game by his standards. He had 4 completions on 9 attempts for 144 yards and a score, but only ran the ball 15 times for 82 yards.
He will have the opportunity to make a number of plays against a bad Virginia defense, so look for him to run for over 200 yards and a score.
Dedrick Mills had his best game of the season against UNC. He ran the ball 19 times for 132 yards and a score. His game breaking ability will be a key factor against the Cavaliers front seven.
If he can get the ball 15 times he shouldn’t have any problems running for over 100 yards.
The Georgia Tech defense had issues against the UNC offense all game last week. They gave up over 300 yards passing, and allowed talented back Elijah Hood to dominate from the start, as he finished with 168 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Stopping the run should be the main focus for the front seven this week, as a new QB should lead to conservative play calling and stacking up the box.
