In its second consecutive game against a ranked opponent, Georgia Tech will face a more experienced quarterback Saturday in North Carolina’s Sam Howell.

The Yellow Jackets allowed only 126 yards passing by Clemson sophomore DJ Uiagalelei a week ago at Clemson, but Howell likely will provide more of a challenge. Howell is a junior who has played in 28 games (compared with Uiagalelei’s 12 before he played Tech). Also, many observers have commented that Howell’s NFL potential makes him a strong candidate to go early in the next NFL draft, possibly as the first quarterback selected.
