Presbyterian Vs. Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets Fumbles Concern Paul Johnson

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets steamrolled the Presbyterian Blue Hose on Saturday, gaining 712 total yards in a 59-3 win.

But the win wasn't perfect. The Yellow Jackets fumbled four times Saturday and lost possession on three—and the one Georgia Tech recovered was on a fourth-down play, and the play ended in a turnover on downs.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Ken Sugiura, head coach Paul Johnson recognized the issue after Saturday's win. He was also brief.

From Sugiura:

The offense "had the ball out too much," coach Paul Johnson said. "We've got an issue or two there we've got to correct."

As is the case in Georgia Tech's style of offense, all of the fumbles Saturday occurred on run plays. Quarterback Tevin Washington fumbled in the second quarter when he was hit from behind. On the next drive, backup quarterback Synjyn Days coughed up the ball on his way into the end zone on a play that started at the Presbyterian 2-yard line.

The third fumble came on a botched handoff between Washington and Charles Perkins. The fourth was by quarterback Vad Lee, a fourth-down, fourth-quarter play with the game already well out of hand.

The Yellow Jackets return to action Saturday against the Virginia Cavaliers at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Presbyterian Vs. Georgia Tech 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And More

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will look to notch their first win of the 2012 season when they host the Presbyterian Blue Hose on Saturday night in Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Yellow Jackets will have a short turnaround after facing the Virgina Tech Hokies on Monday night.

Georgia Tech lost a heartbreaker in that matchup, as they let a fourth-quarter lead slip away and eventually fell in overtime, 20-17, to the Hokies. The defensive battle saw the Yellow Jackets' potent option attack struggle to get going, as they could muster only 3.5 yards per carry.

Presbyterian, out of the FCS, posted a 45-10 opening-weekend win over Brevard. Running back DeMarcus Rouse carried the ball eight times for 83 yards and three touchdowns in the victory.

The last game for Presbyterian saw only 3,439 people in the stands. It is going to be a vastly different atmosphere at Georgia Tech, where the crowd will be well over 50,000.

Game time, TV channel: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN3 (streaming online).

Spread: Vegas does not post a line for games involving FCS teams.

Presbyterian Vs. Georgia Tech: Injuries Present Opportunities For Reserves

With injuries plaguing Georgia Tech in a few places, there are several reserves who have an opportunity to step up and earn more playing time, including defensive back Jamal Golden and linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days. Offensive lineman Morgan Bailey is just trying to get over the latest in a string of injuries.

"I just think I'm bad luck right now," Bailey said. "When I'm out there, I think I'm doing good. I've just got to stay out there."

When he stayed healthy for most of spring practice, he was promoted to the top of the depth chart at right tackle by the end of it. Bailey said his performance stemmed from being injury-free.

Bailey, who is working his way back from a high-ankle sprain, was listed as questionable on Thursday's injury report. Golden is starting for injured safety Fred Holton and Hunt-Days is playing in place of the suspended Daniel Drummond. Drummond's suspension ends at halftime of Saturday's game.

Presbyterian Vs. Georgia Tech: Paul Johnson Looking For Better Performance

Georgia Tech was close to escaping Blacksburg with a win over Virginia Tech on Monday night, but the Ramblin' Wreck eventually came up short in overtime. Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson said his team's performance in several different areas left a lot to be desired.

After reviewing the Virginia Tech game video, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson was not especially impressed with much of anything, including the coaching staff.

Asked about the play of the B-backs, Johnson replied, "There was a lot I saw that I didn't like. Not just at that position. There were several positions."
