The Hokies are heading to Hotlanta to take on the Yellow Jackets. Let’s see how they did against UVA.

Georgia Tech Offense

The Jackets run a little bit of everything on offense. They ran gap, man/base, and zone plays. They liked Inside Zone Read in short-yardage spots, and with quarterback Jeff Sims (#10) being a burner, he picked up some yards even when the defense knew what was coming. Their draw and screen game was also gashing the Hoos, and the Hokies will need to watch for both in long-yardage situations:

Sims is a promising young player. Here’s a nice bit of timing:

He’s made his read and is throwing the ball before the receiver breaks. His legs are probably his best asset right now, though. The only thing that stopped him on one run up the gut was a turf devil.

He’s still young, though, and tends to be streaky.
