Both head coaches are in their first full season at their respective teams, which is just one of many intriguing aspects of this matchup. The Cardinals are an underdog club with a shot at the ACC title game, but they must first go past a tough Georgia Tech squad.
Georgia Tech has a ways to go before they’re even passable on offense or defense. Even though most of Louisville’s key disruptive forces from the previous season have graduated, the team’s pass rushing performance from last year shouldn’t drop too much under new head coach Jeff Brohm and former Purdue defensive coordinator Ron English. The top-ranked sacking team in the country still has the same plan: keep the pressure on the offensive line that ranks worst in the ACC in tackles for loss allowed.
Then there’s the offensive aspect to consider. Jack Plummer, a transfer quarterback with experience from Purdue and Cal, understands what he’s doing with Brohm, and the receiver corps is stacked thanks to the transfer portal. The pressure is on Georgia Tech to prove it can compete.
The holes in the Louisville defense were, perhaps, rather glossed over. Transfers have greatly improved the secondary, but the front seven is essentially rebuilding from scratch. If the Georgia Tech defense can replicate its 2017 performance, the Yellow Jackets should be fine. Despite a new season, coaching staff, and offensive scheme, Louisville ranked at the bottom of the nation in turnovers.
The Yellow Jackets’ offensive is about to pick up where it left off. The Quarterback Passing Game Zach Pyron may be the best quarterback the school has seen in years, and the running game should be strong thanks to a deep backfield. The line needs to improve drastically, but it has four strong returning starters.
