Georgia Tech vs Boston College Eagles

Georgia Tech vs Boston College Eagles: An ACC battle is on tap between the Boston College Eagles and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field. BC should still be riding high after a win, while Georgia Tech will be looking to right the ship.

The Eagles were able to grind out a solid victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies last Friday, winning 17-3. BC can attribute much of their success to RB Pat Garwo III, who rushed for one TD and 116 yards on 30 carries, and QB Phil Jurkovec, who accumulated 112 passing yards in addition to rushing for one TD and 65 yards.

How To Watch

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech was close but no cigar last week as they fell 33-30 to the Miami (FL) Hurricanes. A silver lining for Georgia Tech was the play of RB Jahmyr Gibbs, who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD. One of the most thrilling moments was Gibbs’ 50-yard TD reception in the third quarter.

This next game is expected to be close, with the Eagles going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (3-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.

BC’s victory brought them up to 5-4 while the Yellow Jackets’ loss pulled them down to 3-6. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: BC is 163rd worst in the nation in rushing yards allowed per game, with 171.9 on average. Georgia Tech has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 226th most passing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 20 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
