Boston College vs. Georgia Tech: Reeling Eagles face Yellow Jackets in Atlanta

Stanley Leary-US PRESSWIRE

Boston College (1-5, 0-3 ACC) hopes to change its fortune when it faces Georgia Tech (2-4, 1-3 ACC) on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta, GA.

Nothing has been working for the Boston College Eagles lately, but they'll try to change their fortunes when they face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday afternoon at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

Boston College and Georgia Tech have not played in Atlanta since 2008, when Matt Ryan was the Eagles quarterback and former New England Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton was on the field for the Yellow Jackets. Ryan played one of his best games as a collegiate athlete, completing 30-of-44 passes for 345 yards to lead the Eagles to a 24-10 victory. Georgia Tech leads the all-time series, 5-2.

The Eagles are off to a disheartening 1-5 start, with their lone victory coming over the Maine Black Bears, an FCS team. BC's most recent losses were its worst, with the Eagles falling to Army, 34-31, after allowing over 500 rushing yards and BC losing to the Florida State Seminoles, 51-7, last weekend. Chase Rettig has passed for 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns, Alex Amidon has 41 catches for 688 yards and four scores and Andre Williams has rushed for 473 yards and four touchdowns for the Eagles.

Georgia Tech is 2-4 and has lost its last three games to Miami, Middle Tennessee and Clemson. In each of their last three games, the Yellow Jackets have allowed more than 40 points. Last weekend, Georgia Tech last to Clemson, 47-31. Tevin Washington has 804 passing yards and four touchdowns and 408 rushing yards and 13 rushing scores to pace Georgia Tech.

Georgia Tech is a 14-point favorite over Boston College. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. ET.
