Following two stinging losses, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will attempt to rebound against No. 15 Clemson. Coach Paul Johnson knows that the defense will have to look better than it has. In the last two weeks, Georgia Tech has allowed 91 points and 1,119 yards of offense to Miami and Middle Tennessee State.

On Tuesday, Johnson told the press,

"There have been some communication issues, but even having said that, the bottom line is we've got to tackle better. We've go got quit giving up the big plays. We've got to take better angles over there. You've got to do some of that stuff. Every time the ball breaks the line of scrimmage, it doesn't have to be a touchdown."

The Clemson Tiger offense will be a tough one to slow down, as it averages five touchdowns and 510.8 yards per game.

When these teams met up last year, Georgia Tech won, 31-17.
