Fresno State (8-4) vs. Georgia Tech (7-5)
Dec. 31, 2:00 p.m. ET, ESPN2
Fresno State will win if... it keeps Choice from taking over the game. Hey, Choice is going to get his yards, but the Bulldogs must prevent him from running for 200 yards, and demoralizing the entire defense. To be sure, itís not going to be easy for Fresno State, which faces its toughest test, a Georgia Tech offensive line that has a pair of all-conference blockers, and paved the road for the ACCís best running game. If Choice is kept in check, the Yellow Jackets lack the passing game to make up the difference.
Georgia Tech will win if... the defense plays with a chip on its shoulder. Tenutaís Yellow Jackets usually play fast and tough, but it didnít look that way in November, when they twice allowed more than 400 yards, and failed to pick off a pass. Tech must intimidate Fresno State, creating turnovers and playing like the unit that leads the nation with 48 sacks. If players, such as LB Philip Wheeler, DT Vance Walker, and LB Gary Guyton, get upfield pressure and in Brandstaterís face, the Bulldogs are unlikely to respond to the challenge.
What will happen: If another assistant was coaching the team, Georgia Tech would be even more vulnerable to the upset. With his next job undetermined, and places like LSU, for instance, looking for a coordinator, Tenuta wonít allow this team to give anything less than a complete effort. The Yellow Jackets will hold off Fresno State behind a couple of Choice touchdowns, and an inspired effort from the disruptive defense.
Line: Georgia Tech -4 ... CFN Prediction:Georgia Tech 31 ... Fresno State 16
