While the Jackets' offense performed well in the loss to Miami over the weekend, their defense had serious issues, particularly with the passing game. That's something they'll try to correct against Middle Tennessee, which comes into the week ranked 58th in total offense.

Georgia Tech, not surprisingly, has one of the nation's top rushing offenses, and it also ranks eighth in passing efficiency. The Jackets have scored at least 36 points in each of their last three games.
