Over the remaining 10 games, however, Tech averaged 365.3 yards per game. The Jackets finished the season with an average of 391.6, which ranked 74th among the 129 FBS teams. An average of 365.3 for the season would have ranked 98th in the nation.
However, the encouraging news for Tech is that most of the players responsible for last season’s numbers on offense return for the 2018 season with the experience gained from last season’s disappointment. The top six rushers are back, and six of the top eight scorers, from last season’s team that finished 5-6.
