In our final preview of the 2013 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, we’ll take all the information we’ve put together in our first nine previews, and put together the keys for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to take down the Ole Miss Rebels.
There are few basic things that any team has to do to win a football game–limit turnovers, convert 3rd downs, keep penalties to a minimum–but the Yellow Jackets have some very specific challenges before them in facing Ole Miss, and there are things this team will have to do if they want to come out of Nashville with their second straight bowl victory.
Some of these keys are things that the Jackets do well anyway, and just need to continue doing, while other are problem areas that hopefully have been addressed during the down time, and won’t come back to become a huge problem.
This is a game that, in some respects, truly pits strength against weakness, and sometimes those can be the toughest games to win. The Yellow Jackets just need to be their strengths are greater than the Rebels. But it’s probably safe to say that we are in for a treat of a game, with two very tough, very competitive teams meeting up for a year-end bowl.
