Maryland comes in to face Georgia Tech, praying they can slow down the nation's top rushing attack.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets look to bring the Ramblin' Wreck home against the Maryland Terrapins in ACC play. Tech is 5-0 and on a roll, scoring at least 35 points in every game and sporting the nation's top rushing attack, featuring Orwin Smith, who's averaging an eye-popping 15.1 yards per carry.
Maryland, on the other hand, rebounded last week after two straight losses, taking out Towson 28-3. Maryland let Towson hold the time of possession for much of the first half and couldn't stop the run, which doesn't bode well at all coming in to face Paul Johnson's triple option.
Game date, time: 12:00 pm ET, Saturday, October 8th
Location: Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, GA
TV channel: ESPNU
Spread: Georgia Tech favored by 14
Series history: Georgia Tech leads 13-6
