Georgia-Georgia Tech: Battle In The Trenches

Last year, UGA ran all over Tech to the tune of 339 yards on the ground.  The Bulldogs weren't doing anything fancy, they were simply lining up and knocking the Yellow Jackets off the ball.  Georgia used a two tight, two wide to one side, with one back or a two back set both with great success.

Thus far this season, Georgia Tech has been giving up 171 rush yards per game which ranks 79th nationally.  I would fully expect UGA to run the ball early and often considering the success they had last year and size disparity in the front sevens.  Lineups taken from each team's most recent game.
