Georgia Tech vs Miami College Football Picks, College Football Odds & College Football Predictions: The No. 14 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the No. 20 Miami Hurricanes meet tonight at Landshark Stadium in an ACC Coastal division battle. Both squads already have an ACC win under their belts, and a victory tonight could be a huge advantage as the conference season continues to unfold. This evening's game is set to get underway at 7:30pm ET on ESPN. College Football Picks at Sportsbook.com have the Yellow Jackets listed as a +5 against the spread road dog.
Georgia Tech picked up their second win of the season last Thursday, beating the Clemson Tigers 30-27 at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets had a 24-7 lead going into the half, but the Tigers rallied to take a 27-24 second half lead with 11:33 left in the game. Two late field goals by Scott Blair, including a 36 yarder with 00:57 left, secured the win but did not cover the -5.5 spread.
Tech finished the game with 418 yards of offense, 301 of which came on the ground. The Yellow Jackets were able to overcome a miserable passing night from quarterback Josh Nesbitt, who completed just 3-of-14 for 83 yards and two interceptions. Surprisingly, though, it was not star running back Jonathan Dwyer stealing the show as he had just 66 yards on 18 carries. It was junior Anthony Allen who picked up the slack, carrying the ball five times for 127 yards and a touchdown as well as Nesbitt himself, who racked 91 rush yards.
Through two games Paul Johnson's squad is averaging 33.5 points and 318 rush yards per game. They are giving up 22 points and 338.5 yards per contest.
The Hurricanes had the weekend off after scoring a dramatic 38-34 win over Florida State back on Monday, September 7th. Miami traded punches with the Seminoles all night long, but finally landed a knockout blow with just 1:53 left in the game as running back Greg Cooper punched it in from three yards out.
The 'Canes racked up a ton of yardage, 476 to be exact, and repeatedly exploited Florida State through the air. Sophomore quarterback Jacory Harris completed 21-of-36 passes for 386 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Miami's defense had a rough night, though, giving up 404 yards and 21 first downs to the Seminoles. FSU quarterback Christian Ponder threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns in leading his team to 24 second half points.
