The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have looked nothing short of impressive thus far in 2012. After a three-point overtimme road loss in Virginia Tech to start the season, the Yellow Jackets have scored at least 56 points in back-to-back victories.

The offense is clicking behind the nation's third best rushing attack at 374 yards per game. Four Yellow Jackets have already rushed for over 100 yards through three games, including quarterback Tevin Washington, who leads the way with 253 yards rushing.

On the flip side, it's hard to judge exactly how good the Miami Hurricanes are after three games. They defeated weaker opponents Boston College and Bethune-Cookman and were trampled on the road against No. 15 Kansas State.

These two teams met a season ago, when Miami beat the Yellow Jackets 24-7 at home.

Game Time & Date: 3:00 p.m. ET, Saturday, Sept. 22

Location: Bobby Dodd Stadium

TV: RSN
