The offensive line. The group, like most on Tech's team, is beat up. Several contributors weren't able to practice at least one day during the week. As a result, there could be as many as three freshmen, Parker Braun, Jahaziel Lee and Kenny Cooper, playing a significant amount should Shamire Devine, Andrew Marshall and Trey Klock not be able to go. The line's pass protection improved in last week's loss to Pittsburgh, but its run blocking, particularly in a key short-yardage situation late in the fourth quarter, was sub-standard.
Can the defense get a stop? Tech's defense has given up a touchdown on the first drive to its past five opponents. If it can't stop the Eagles, who run a similar offense to Tech's so it should be very familiar to the defense, then who knows if that trend will ever stop.
