It will once again be a classic matchup of offense versus defense when the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets take on the Utah Utes in the 2011 Hyundai Sun Bowl. The Yellow Jackets finished third nationally with an average of 316.8 rushing yards per game, but they will have a tough time coming close to that total against a strong Utah defense that allowed less than 20 points per game on the year. The Utes understand what they are dealing with in the triple option, but they will need to settle their own issues on offense in order to provide an upset as sports betting underdogs for this game.

College Football Betting Line: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – 2.5

The Yellow Jackets will need their defense to step up and make some plays if they are going to have any chance at avoiding their seventh straight postseason loss. Georgia Tech has a ton of talent on both sides of the ball, and how they match up against the Utes will obviously be a crucial factor.

College Football Betting Preview: Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington only threw for 1,515 passing yards, and only 10 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions, but he was a threat with his legs as well as he led the team in rushing yards with 890 and added another 14 scores. Washington will need to have another big game to keep the ball rolling for the Yellow Jackets, and his performance will go a long way in determining the outcome of this game. The running back tandem of David Sims and Orwin Smith each ran for over 600 yards this year, and also put up a ton of points with Sims, Smith, and Washington combining for 32 touchdowns this season.

While the Yellow Jackets continue to rely on Washington to do everything in their backfield, the Utes will look to bring a lot of pressure and make life miserable for the Georgia Tech quarterback. Head coach Kyle Whittingham has won six of seven bowl games that he has participated in, so there isn’t much doubt that he understands how to get his team ready. Utah running back John White IV has become the go-to guy on offense, and has already rushed for over 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the Yellow Jackets undoubtedly have the potential to pull away in this one, it is hard to imagine the Utes allowing an excellent opportunity to just slip out of their hands, especially considering everything that they have already accomplished. Georgia Tech will likely come out on top in this game, but look for it to be close until the end, and for Utah to at the least cover the sportsbook spread listed for this game.
