The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will visit the Miami Hurricanes Saturday in a key ACC matchup. The teams sit in first and second in the Coastal Division, putting the winner in the catbird seat. Kickoff is Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC (live stream).
The Yellow Jackets (3-1, 2-0) are coming off of three straight solid performances going into Saturday’s game. After losing a gut-wrencher to Tennessee at the start of the season, Georgia Tech dominated against Jacksonville State, Pittsburgh, and the University of North Carolina.
Injuries may be a problem for Miami (4-0, 2-0). Running back Mark Walton was lost for the season with an ankle injury vs. Florida State. The Hurricanes also lost three other starters that game, including right guard Navaughn Donaldson, cornerback Dee Delaney, and safety Sheldrick Redwine.

Yellow Jackets vs. Hurricanes news
“But now, after having ended the streak and beaten FSU, Miami has to fight a different battle. The Hurricanes have to avoid a letdown, ignore the performance of last week, and move forward to keep things going this season.”
“Miami left Tallahassee battered with a few injuries and GT will look to take advantage of that this weekend.”
“Matt Porter, from the Palm Beach Post, had a nice piece on Homer yesterday. The sophomore seems to have a good mindset as he prepares to take over for one of the best RB’s in the country.”
Yellow Jackets vs. Hurricanes prediction
The odds may not be in the Yellow Jackets’ favor, but I still believe they will upset the undefeated Hurricanes on Saturday. The loss of Mark Walton puts Miami’s explosive rushing offense at risk. If Georgia Tech’s secondary can find a way to defend Miami’s passing offense, they could be a real problem for the Hurricanes.
