Georgia Tech Predicted to Upset Miami
On ESPN’s College Gameday Saturday morning, the biggest upset alert was given to Georgia Tech with the possibility of shutting down the No.11 Miami Hurricanes. On live air, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, and special guest James Madison all picked Georgia Tech with the upset.
This big matchup will take place in Miami at 3:30pm as the Hurricanes are coming off a high. With Miami recently losing their star RB Mark Walton to a season ending injury against Florida State last week, they turn to sophomore Travis Homer to pick up the slack and get a bigger load of the carries. Miami coming off a HUGE victory over Florida State, the Yellow Jackets will look to end that parade and push their winning streak to 4 in a row and put their record to 4-1.
Georgia Tech having a serious issue with holding onto the ball must secure and not allow careless turnovers if they are going to have a chance at a win. With their triple threat being very effective this year, look for TaQuon Marshall to have yet another big game.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Georgia Tech has a 26.2% chance of victory with a +6.5 point spread on the line. Following the loss of multiple offensive weapons for Miami, I see Georgia Tech running all over this defense and putting up too many points for Miami to match.
Prediction: Georgia Tech 34 Miami 17
