BYU Vs. Georgia Tech: Cougars' no-huddle a concern

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are trying hard to be prepared for the no-huddle offense that the BYU Cougars could use against them on Saturday.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have struggled on defense against teams with a no-huddle offense.

Both touchdowns scored against the Yellow Jackets last week were out of a no-huddle set. Interim defensive coordinator Charles Kelly said in an interview with Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he believes the problems do not lie in the execution or a breakdown in communication:

"The communication was OK," Kelly said. "I think just getting set and getting your eyes ready to go, I think that's the biggest thing."

Last Saturday, defensive players wore wristbands that had the plays printed on them to help speed up from the sideline. The team has also been working quicker in practice to prepare for BYU. While some of the players think they have improved quite a bit, Kelly cautions that the Cougars' no-huddle offense is not to be taken lightly:

"You'll see the (opposing) defenses trying to get set, lined up, so we've been working on that, and hopefully we'll get better at it," he said.

The game between the Yellow Jackets and the Cougars is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The game will be broadcast on Raycom Sports but will also be streamed live over ESPN3.com. Radio coverage of the game will be provided by WQXI 790 AM and WYAY 106.7 FM.
