Georgia Tech looks to win a second conference game in as many weeks when the Jackets host ACC Coastal rival Miami. The Hurricanes, despite being 2-1 and sitting atop the division, haven’t made things look pretty in their first three games. Al Golden’s squad had to rally to put away Boston College, were blown out at Kansas State and got off to a slow start against Bethune-Cookman. They have, however, shown recent dominance over the Jackets over the past few seasons. Miami has won the past three contests by an average margin of 19 points. Tech will have to slow down the Hurricanes’ rushing attack and take advantage of a Miami defense that has allowed just over 31 points per game so far.
Georgia Tech will have to do so without former starting B-back Charles Perkins. The former Collins Hill star has an “upper-body injury” according to Johnson and could miss the rest of the season.
