FSU is averaging more than 100 rushing yards a game this season.
However, more than 300 of their season’s total came in one game against BYU.
To show how inept the running game has been in the other four games, the Seminoles are averaging a little less than 70 yards a game on the ground.
More than half their sacks came in one game, Jacksonville State.
It is a team that can neither run, nor can it defend the pass.
Do either of those play to Tech’s strengths?
That’s a tough question. Tech doesn’t pass just to pass. It pass for big plays. Therefore, the other team’s pass defense, no matter how good or bad, sometimes doesn’t matter.
And the Seminoles’ inability to run may not matter because FSU loves to pass. As you know, Tech has had issues getting to the quarterback the past few games. When quarterbacks have had time they have done well against the Jackets. It’s only fair to say that would be true for most teams.
Some are saying this is a trap game for Tech, as odd as that sounds.
It seems like it will be a high-scoring affair.
I can’t decide yet how I think the game is going to go.
Every time I think I’ve got a peg on the team, something changes my mind.
I thought the defense had things figured out after the UNC game. And then UNC laid another egg the next week and MSU put up more than 400 yards.
Tech’s special teams start out the season like gangbusters, and now they suddenly don’t look so strong.
The offense seems to have put it together. We’ll see if that trend stays true.
