From The Rumble Seat has completely lost its mind in advance of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets game tonight against their conference nemesis, the Virginia Tech Hokies. Do the Jackets have a chance at giving VPI its first ACC loss? I can’t find anybody on the ’trodes who thinks so.
NBC Sports thinks Virginia Tech wins 34-27, which means they don’t cover the spread, all right! Five out of five CBS panelists pick the Hokies, and Rivals doesn’t even bother picking the thing, because there are games in dispute to discuss. What If Sports gives the Jackets a 33.7 percent chance of victory, which sounds astronomical, and likes the Hokies to win by only five.
As for your correspondent, 47-17 Hokies has been the final rattling around my head for at least a week now. Haven’t done the calculations on how exactly a football team reaches a silly number like 47, but Georgia Tech’s defense is certainly capable of finding out.
