Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Clemson Tigers, the first game of the season for the Tigers at home. The champions want to open the season with a victory at home. Last season for the Tigers was full of victories and happiness winning the college football championship. The Yellow Jackets did not have the same fate, the team could barely reach the quick lane bowl but lost to the Golden Gophers.
Clemson Tigers: Another year with the same goal.
The Tigers want to do the same, new season means another chance to win the title. Last year the Tigers won the title against favorite Alabama Crimson Tide 44-16. The record last season was 15-0 overall, and 8-0 at the conference. The Tigers had the number one defense in the season ranking. The record at home was solid, the only difficult game at home was against Syracuse 27-23 in the fifth week.
At home the Clemson Tigers are scoring an average of 46.0 points per game, 41.9 rushes with 287.1 rush yards, 34.1 passes with 276.0 pass yards and 9.99 points per quarter. The defense allows up to 14.4 points at home, 104.1 rush yards with 206.9 pass yards. The last game at home last season was a victory against SC Gamecocks 56-35.
Trevor Lawrence is ready for another season. Trevor’s most recent comment was “We want to be the best offense in the country.” That phrase refers to how good the offensive was last season and the team hopes to do the same this year. Lawrence closed 2018 with 259 complete passes, 65.2% completion, 3280 yards and 30 TD.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: It’s not easy to start playing against them.
The Yellow Jackets know that the first game of the season will not be easy. The record against the Tigers is negative. 0-4 in the last four games. In 2014 it was the last time the Yellow Jackets won against the Tigers. That game was in Georgia. In 2008 it was Georgia Tech’s most recent victory against Clemson Tigers in Florida. The last defeat against the Tigers was in September last year 49-21 in the fourth week of the season.
On the road the Yellow Jackets closed last season with 3-3-0. The last game on the road was a defeat against Georgia 21-45. On the road the Yellow Jackets are scoring an average of 38.5 points per game, 62.7 rushes with 389.2 rush yards, 3.8 complete passes with 76.0 pass yards. The offensive is poor on the road.
The quarterback for this game will not be Tobias Oliver. So far, Lucas Johnson is expected to be available as a QB against the Tigers. There is still one day left for the start of the season and the Yellow Jackets do not have a QB.
