Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate this season will come down to several key factors as Georgia Tech’s triple-option offense, by default, will remove the Bulldogs best player on defense in CB Deandre Baker. Baker’s prowess in coverage will certainly not be tested on anything more than a very limited basis against the Yellow Jackets.
Keys for the game in the Georgia-Georgia Tech matchup:
– Georgia is the nation’s highest-graded tackling team: 94.8 tackling grade, missing only 56 total tackles as a team this season
– Georgia Tech’s run-defense grade is the 43rd-highest among 62 Power-5 teams
– Georgia’s run-blocking grade is No. 2 in the Power-5
– Georgia QB Jake Fromm possesses a 90.3 overall grade from a clean pocket
– Georgia Tech gets home with pressure on 33.0% of their pass-rushing snaps, 102 out of 130 FBS teams
I mentioned those last two points yesterday. Fromm should have a good day tomorrow.
