What’s at Stake
A quick history lesson for Georgia Tech: One year ago, William & Mary beat Virginia and Richmond beat Duke. Georgia Tech, the defending ACC champion, wants to avoid becoming another team from the league with another loss to an FCS school.
Georgia Tech was second in the nation in rushing last season with more than 295 yards per game. The Yellow Jackets are expected to have a strong running game again even after losing top rusher Jonathan Dwyer to the NFL. Senior Anthony Allen is the new starter at the B-back position manned by Dwyer last year. South Carolina State gave up only 98.3 yards rushing per game in ‘09.
Players to Watch
South Carolina State: Senior QB Malcolm Long is the preseason MAC offensive player of the year after passing for more than 2,500 yards last year. LB David Erby had four sacks and 68.5 tackles last year. LB Julius Wilkerson had 66 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
Georgia Tech: The school unveiled a website pushing QB Joshua Nesbitt for the Heisman Trophy this week. Nesbitt ran for 18 TDs last year as a junior and could become the top rushing QB in ACC history this season. Allen had 618 yards rushing and seven TDs on only 64 carries last season, and could have a big year in his first chance to be the team’s top back.
