2013: 7-6 (5-3 ACC); lost Music City Bowl to Ole Miss
Known for one of the most innovative offenses in college football, Georgia Tech’s triple-option spread is how they became one of the most explosive offenses in college football. They featured the sixth-best rushing attack in FBS at a whopping 299.3 yards per game. They played much better than their record would indicate too, hanging in there in every loss except Clemson. Highlight victories for them included at upstart Duke and a 56-0 shutout of Syracuse, but they couldn’t win any of their really important games. They lost at Miami, at Clemson, at home against heated rival Georgia, and the bowl game to Ole Miss. Quarterback Vad Lee was fine but not utilized all that much, whereas they had an incredible 12 players total at least 100 rushing yards. Many of them were incredibly efficient like Robert Godhigh (744 yards, 9.4 yards per carry). In fact, 11 of those 12 rushers, everyone except Lee, registered at least five yards per carry. And by stark contrast their leading wide receiver had just 23 receptions. Look for them to continue this unique yet effective strategy in addition to an above-average defense.
