Get ready for an ACC battle as the Boston College Eagles and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will face off at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at Alumni Stadium. Neither team wants a repeat from their last game since each was dealt a considerable loss.
BC has to be hurting after a devastating 40-14 defeat at the hands of the Virginia Tech Hokies last week. Boston College’s loss came about despite a quality game from WR Jaelen Gill, who caught six passes for one TD and 104 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Gill has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech played a contest they are hoping to forget as they lost a 73-7 blowout to the Clemson Tigers last week. The Yellow Jackets were down 59-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. No one had a standout game offensively for Georgia Tech, but they got one touchdown from WR Jalen Camp. Jeff Sims’ 59-yard touchdown toss to Camp in the first quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the day.
BC is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. If their 3-1 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Giving up five turnovers, BC had had trouble holding onto the ball. We’ll see if the Yellow Jackets can exploit that vulnerability.
