Last Friday, the Hurricanes had a touchdown and change to spare in a 17-9 victory over Virginia. QB N’Kosi Perry was slinging it as he accumulated 182 passing yards and punched in one rushing TD.
Meanwhile, things haven’t been easy for Georgia Tech, and their game last week only extended their streak of losses to four. They took a hard 41-23 fall against Duke. The Yellow Jackets haven’t found any success against Duke since Oct. 29 of 2016, this defeat making it three in a row.
Miami (Fla.)’s win lifted them to 3-3 while Georgia Tech’s loss dropped them down to 1-5. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Miami (Fla.) rank seventh in the league when it comes to rushing yards allowed per game, with only 77.7 on average. On the other end of the spectrum, Georgia Tech are stumbling into the contest with the fourth most rushing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 237.8 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Yellow Jackets.
