2. Can Tech stop Ralph Webb?
The Tech defense will brace for its sternest test of the young season, Vanderbilt’s power running game featuring running back Ralph Webb. The junior pummeled Middle Tennessee State last week for 211 rushing yards while the team has averaged 200 rushing yards and 4.6 yards per attempt in its first two games. The one thing Tech’s defense has done in two games, though, is stop the run. The Jackets have permitted 130.5 rushing yards and 4.0 yards per carry, numbers heavily influenced by their one big bust, a 73-yard scoring run by Boston College.
