Georgia Tech @ Florida State

Last Season Records: Florida State 6-7; Georgia Tech 3-9

What to Know

The Florida State Seminoles and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are opening their 2020 seasons against one another at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium. Last year was nothing to brag about for FSU (6-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 3-9 last-season record, Georgia Tech has set their aspirations higher this season.

A couple numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Seminoles ranked 13th worst in the nation with respect to passing yards allowed per game last year, where the squad gave up 276.7 on average (bottom 91%). The Yellow Jackets experienced some struggles of their own as they were seventh worst when it came to passing yards per game last season, with the team coming up with only 133.9 on average. So maybe these sore spots will just cancel each other out if things haven't changed too much in the offseason.

FSU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
