Coming off of a huge win at Miami two weeks ago, Georgia Tech Football fights Pittsburgh at home on The Flats for Homecoming with a slight chance to stay in the Coastal race.
Things to Know:
Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh have played 13 times all-time, with Pittsburgh leading the series at a (8-5) record.
The Panthers have won 3 of the last 4 meetings between the two after losing two straight against the Yellow Jackets when they joined the ACC Coastal back in 2013.
The Panthers are -7.5 point favorites Saturday and have gone (5-3) against the spread this season, with the Yellow Jackets going (1-6) against the spread.
What happened last week:
The Yellow Jackets had an extra week to prepare for the Panthers and are hoping to win a pivotal ACC match up against Pittsburgh. With a win over Miami two weeks ago, the Yellow Jackets chances for the ACC Coastal division title are all but dead. Miami has wins over Virginia and Pittsburgh, two teams that happen to remain on the Yellow Jackets schedule. The Jackets, (1-3) in ACC play, will have to win out their conference schedule and hope that Duke drops at least 1 game and North Carolina drops a couple. After a strong win and a week to prepare, the Jackets are definitely in position for yet another sweet upset victory over an ACC foe.
Pittsburgh has been very Jekyll and Hyde this year, to say the least. The Panthers played very well against in-state rival Penn State, losing only 17-10, and even snapped the infamous-long regular season game win streak of UCF, but since then, have played sub-par. The Panthers have struggled against far worse opponents (Delaware and Syracuse), and they just dropped a loss to Miami at home last Friday. The Panthers will look to get back on track with a road win against the Yellow Jackets, which would improve their road game record this year to (3-1).
