The Yellow Jacked Up staff provides predictions for Saturday afternoon’s matchup between Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Pittsburgh Panthers are preparing to take on each other at 4:00 pm on Saturday afternoon and here’s how Yellow Jacked Up’s staff sees the game playing out between the two ACC Coastal opponents.
Dylan Callaghan-Croley: 20-17 Georgia Tech
This is one of the few times I’ve picked the Yellow Jackets to win this season and I feel good about this one. Pittsburgh is a team that’s struggled offensively recently and while their defense is dangerous, I think if the Yellow Jackets find a way to score one non-offensive touchdown, they’ll have a solid chance at winning this game. The offense will need to have a clutch drive or two in the game but if the defense shows up, the Yellow Jackets should be in this game all day. I’m expecting a big day out of Jordan Mason.
Bronston Tankersly: 24-20 Pittsburgh
Georgia Tech is going to stay in this game and may even have the lead at some point but Pitt makes a late drive to steal the game. Tech scores again to cover the spread for the second game in a row but that’s all they’ll get out of this one.
Lee Cagle: 21-10 Pittsburgh
Lee has Pittsburgh winning this one and covering the spread thanks to a late touchdown by the Panthers to make it a two score game in the fourth quarter.
Matthew Summers: 24-17 Georgia Tech
The only other person to take the Yellow Jackets today is Matthew who has the Yellow Jackets pulling out the victory. The Jackets will be leading by two scores in the fourth quarter before a Pitt touchdown cuts their lead to just seven points, the Panthers will threaten again but the Jackets will hold onto the lead and get their second-straight victory.
