Georgia Tech is coming off a nice 14-10 win Saturday in its home opener against South Florida. Now they get a game against The Citadel, a member of the FCS Southern Conference.
The Bulldogs’ option offense could give Tech fits, but the Yellow Jackets’ defenders also may be familiar enough with that look, having seen it regularly under former coach Paul Johnson, that instincts may take over Saturday. Tech has enough good athletes on defense to handle the option.
