Recent history suggests game might be closer than the spread indicates.

The Yellow Jackets have not been playing their best football lately, and that is beginning to be reflected in the spread of their games. After two straight losses, Georgia Tech is a 9.5-point underdog to Clemson.

The Tigers are 4-1 on the season and 1-1 in the ACC, beating Boston College and losing to Florida State.

But while Clemson might be better so far this season, Georgia Tech (2-3) has been dominant in their recent games against the Tigers. Over their last 10 meetings, the Yellow Jackets are 7-3 against Clemson.

Despite the vastly different overall records, both teams are 3-2 against the spread in 2012.

That's not the only place the similarities lie. The two teams have almost identical offensive and defensive points per game. The Tigers score 40.2 ppg while giving up 26.6 ppg, while the Yellow Jackets score 39.2 ppg and give up 26.8 ppg.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET at Grass of Memorial Stadium.
