Florida State vs. Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets face tough defense again

The tough Georgia Bulldogs defense held the Yellow Jackets to 10 points and the Florida State Seminoles have a powerful defense as well.

One week after facing the vaunted defense of the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will get no break and face the tough defense of the No. 13 Florida State Seminoles on Saturday in the ACC Championship.

Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson told Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he thinks the Seminoles are better up front than Georgia, which doesn't necessarily bode well for a Yellow Jackets offense that managed only 10 points on Saturday.

However, as the Yellow Jackets didn't score many points, they were able to rack up plenty of yardage, including 306 yards rushing. The yardage didn't translate into points, though, as the Georgia Tech offense managed just one touchdown and turned the ball over twice.

The Seminoles' defense allows an average of 15.1 points per game, which ranks seventh in the nation. The 37 points allowed to the Florida Gators on Saturday was tied for the most given up by the Seminoles all season.
