SPOOKY EXPRESS BOWLING FOR DOLLARS SELECTION AND ANALYSIS THREAD Sun Bowl
Georgia Tech vs. Utah
Saturday, Dec. 31, 2:00 pm
The Hyundai Sun Bowl features two teams looking to cap off solid seasons. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets stung their first six opponents before struggling down the stretch. Despite losing four of their last six games, they finished the season at 8-4. The Utah Utes season was the exact opposite. They lost four of their first seven games before winning four of their last five to finish 7-5. Both teams will be looking to finish strong with a win in the Sun Bowl.
Georgia Tech rushes for 316.8 yards per game, and have one of the best option style offenses in the country. Utah has a solid defense, which allows less than 20 points per game. They have faced potent offenses this season, but none as run heavy as this Yellow Jacket attack. They will have to contain and not get beat on the edges. That will be easier said than done when Georgia Tech has a seemingly unlimited supply of running backs, along with an outstanding athlete at quarterback in Tevin Washington.
I think the Yellow Jackets running attack will prove to be too much for the Utes. Tevin Washington will struggle a bit, but his running ability along with a host of talented running backs will be enough. Utah will score against a Georgia Tech defense that can be exploited. A shootout favors Georgia Tech and they will have just enough to outlast John White IV and the rest of the Utes offense. I have Georgia Tech winning this game by a little more than a touchdown so that said lets come back closer to game time with more thoughts but jumping on Georgia Tech minus the points right now.
