Line backups to see playing time vs. Tulane

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson will make a point of giving playing time to backup offensive linemen Saturday against Tulane. Against Wofford on Saturday, coaches had intended to get linemen such as freshmen Shamire Devine, Trey Klock and Andrew Marshall into the game on offense – Devine played on the field-goal team – but were unable to as the game was not decided until late.

“I think we’ll be committed to it,” Johnson said. “At least at a couple positions up there, we need to get a look at a couple other guys.”

Johnson said he also wants to give more playing time in the Tulane game to B-back Synjyn Days, who moved to that position from A-back during the preseason. Days ran five times for 23 yards and a touchdown as a backup to starter Zach Laskey.
