Georgia Tech looks for their second win in a row on Saturday afternoon when they take on The Citadel.
Georgia Tech last week was able to eek out win No.1 of the Geoff Collins era, defeating USF 14-10. This week, the Jackets look for win No.2 but in a more comfortable manner as they take on FCS program The Citadel Bulldogs. The Bulldogs enter Saturday 0-2 with two seven-point losses. They’ll bring the triple-option offense back to Atlanta for the first time since…..November as they look for the upset of a Tech team that has yet to find it’s identity on offense. That being said, expect the Jackets to follow up their strong defensive performance from last week with another one on Saturday afternoon.
Georgia Tech as of Saturday morning is a 28-point favorite over The Citadel. The Jackets through their first two games are 0-2 against the spread including failing to cover last week’s spread against USF. They would end up winning that game 14-10 thanks to a strong defensive effort. The Citadel is coming off a close 35-28 loss to Elon last week but shouldn’t prove to be too much of a challenge for the Jackets.
