My Prediction: Both of these teams are hard to figure out. They’ll look great for a few weeks then lay an egg against a poor team. The key to this game will be whether or not Utah’s #7 rush defense can stop Georgia Tech’s 3rd ranked rushing attack. I’m struggling to pick a side in this one so I’m going to take the under. Both teams like to run and that keeps the clock running. Both teams do not have much of a passing attack.
