The Yellow Jackets are coming off a narrow 23-20 win over the Duke Blue Devils for their 2nd straight win in the encounter with Tech interim coach Brent Key seeming to already infuse a winning culture in the team –something that eluded his predecessor, Geoff Collins, for over three years.
Looking at the series record between these two programs –it’s tied 21-21-1, but Virginia has won two straight in the head-to-head series and three wins in the last four in the series. The Jackets start as the favorite to win today by 3 1/2 points and I am expecting a close match on Thursday night.
The last time Virginia and Georgia Tech battled, the Cavaliers secured a 48-40 win on October 23, 2021, and had a 33-28 win in 2019.
Virginia has completed 116 of the 213 passes on offense this season with 1,363 yards, while Georgia Tech has made 105 of the 180 attempted passes for 1,073 yards.
