Preparing for Georgia Tech Puts Pressure on Tennessee

Georgia Tech’s famed triple option is coming for Tennessee’s rebuilt defense, and the Vols will soon have their backs to the wall.

Coach Butch Jones has done about as much as possible to prepare for an offensive scheme that has chewed up and spit out one SEC defense after another of late.

The Yellow Jackets have won five of their last six matchups against SEC teams entering the 8 p.m. Sept. 4 game vs. Tennessee in Atlanta. In the process, Georgia Tech has produced the following rushing numbers:

2014: 399 yards rushing vs. Georgia

2014: 452 yards rushing vs. Mississippi State

2015: 194 yards rushing vs. Georgia

2016: 289 yards rushing vs. Vanderbilt

2016: 226 yards rushing vs. Georgia

2016: 266 yards rushing vs. Kentucky

“Our scout teams have done a very good job of emulating and running their plays and it’s something they have worked on for a long period of time,” Jones said Monday, “but more so than that, it’s the speed of the game, [and] it’s quick decisions by the quarterback, the speed of the backs, the velocity of the up-front blocking.

“To me, that’s the most challenging thing, is just the overall speed of the game and the technique and fundamentals with which they play, because they are very good at what they do.”

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson recently explained that the Yellow Jackets are so much more than just a triple option team.
