One big thing to watch: Georgia Tech’s triple option offense: The Yellow Jackets are one of the few teams that runs this type of offense. The Bulldogs have been good at stopping the run this season, but this is a different type of animal. With Deshea Townsend calling the plays for the first time, it could very well decide the ballgame.

Preview: MSU sees Georgia Tech again

Pregame song(s): 

Since we’re in a place where the sun shines and the temperature is nice year round, this song seems to fit perfectly. I hope you enjoy.
