Two teams battling for the top of the ACC get together on Saturday as Georgia Tech host 16th ranked Florida State.  The Yellow Jackets will be looking to end a serious drought against the Seminoles.  Florida State has won the last 12 meetings between the two teams and the last six in Atlanta. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Florida State on the Road.

 

Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden has never lost in his career against Georgia Tech, going a perfect 12-0. This has been a series of domination for one team or the other.  In the early going it was all Yellow Jackets as they went 7-0-1 against Florida State.  The last 12 games though have all gone to Florida State, including the last six in Atlanta.  The game is huge for both teams in the ACC.  Georgia Tech was in good shape in the conference until last week when they let one get away against Virginia.  Now it is Florida State that controls their own destiny as they will play in the ACC title game if they win out. Saturday’s game is the first meeting between the Jackets and Seminoles since 2003 and the first meeting in Atlanta since 2002. The key on Saturday could be turnovers.  Georgia Tech has fumbled 26 times this season.  The Yellow Jackets have lost 14 of those fumbles, which is tied for 2nd worst in the country.  Somehow the team is 6-2 despite the fumbles but they can’t afford to continue turning the ball over if they expect to contend for the ACC title.
