Upset special: Georgia Tech over Clemson
October, 27, 2011

There’s little reason to pick Georgia Tech, which has looked awful in its last two games. The Yellow Jackets scored just 28 points total in losses to Virginia and Miami. Quarterback Tevin Washington has really struggled throwing the football as of late, completing just eight passes and throwing thee interceptions. But Clemson’s defense has given up a ton of points (83) and a ton of yards (886) the last two games. If Tech can get its option game going, the Yellow Jackets might be able to pull off a shocker in a high-scoring game. Tech’s defense will have to force some turnovers and find a way to contain Clemson freshman receiver Sammy Watkins. It looks like a trap game for Clemson, which plays Wake Forest, currently No. 2 in the Atlantic Division standings, next. The Yellow Jackets will kick a late field goal to win 34-31.
