The Virginia Cavaliers travel to Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Virginia is undefeated coming into the affair after narrowly escaping 17-16 against the Penn State Nittany Lions. The Cavaliers were vastly outplayed for a majority of the game but ultimately were bailed out by Sam Ficken missing four field goals and an extra point.
One bright spot in the ugly win was quarterback Michael Rocco, who was 21-of-33 on the afternoon for 258 yards and two touchdowns. Jake McGee also had a solid day, with four catches for 99 yards and a score.
Georgia Tech has looked very formidable early despite losing their opener against the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Yellow Jackets had a 17-14 lead with under a minute to play but couldn't hold on, ultimately losing in overtime.
However, Paul Johnson's team bounced back in a major way last week, pummeling the Presbyterian Blue Hose 59-3 at home. Amazingly, Georgia Tech amassed 712 total yards, including 469 on the ground.
