The UNC Tar Heels will head on the road to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this Saturday in an ACC college football matchup. The Tar Heels won 38-22 at Georgia Tech when these two last played in 2019.

The Tar Heels are coming off a 59-39 win over the Virginia Cavaliers last time out, bringing their record to 2-1. Sam Howell threw for 307 yards and five touchdowns. They finished with 699 yards of total offense and 35 first down conversions. They averaged 8.3 yards per carry and racked up 392 yards on the ground. To start the season North Carolina is averaging 42.7 points per game and allowing 24.3 to the opposition. Howell ranks 17th in the nation with 867 passing yards and eight with nine touchdowns but has thrown four interceptions.

Georgia Tech is looking to bounce back after a tough 14-8 defeat on the road against the Clemson Tigers. They limited the Tigers to under 300 yards of total offense but could not eclipse the number themselves. They were held to under 100 yards rushing and kept out of the end zone for the first time this season. Through their first three games, the Yellow Jackets are averaging 24.7 points per game while allowing 17.7 to the opposition. Jordan Yates has completed 65.3 percent of his passes thus far but has only averaged 7.9 yards per attempt. They rank fifth in the nation with just 124.3 passing yards allowed per game.

North Carolina is 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games, 6-4 on the money line, and the over is 7-3.

Georgia Tech is 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games, 3-7 on the money line, and the over is 6-4.

The Yellow Jackets should be playing with an edge in this one after losing a close game against the sixth ranked team in the nation. Their defense stepped up again, and has a chance to slow down this Tar Heels passing attack. Howell has shown he can make some mistakes, so Georgia Tech will need to capitalize on those opportunities to keep this one close. The Tar Heels defense has shown some holes, so the Yellow Jackets have a chance to keep pace even if the defense gets off to a slow start. Give me Georgia Tech to bang out a cover at home.
