SDS will break down all 10 SEC bowl games from a numbers perspective, and here is a look at this year’s Music City Bowl between Ole Miss and Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech is a run-based team, somewhat comparable to Auburn, but the Yellow Jackets don’t have the horses Auburn has. Ole Miss gives up an average of 155.25 yards per game in the running game, while Georgia Tech averages over 311 yards per game. That’s the most interesting matchup to watch.
The Yellow Jackets can also get to the quarterback, making 32 sacks in 12 games, compared to Ole Miss’ 18.
