1. Start fast: Georgia Tech’s offense can be prolific piling up yards and points but it’s not built to come from behind. An early lead against the Yellow Jackets can go a long way. GT has outscored opponents 94-73 in the first quarter of games this year. It trailed at the half in three of its four losses. In the fourth loss, it was tied at the break. Virginia has been even better in the first quarter, outscoring opponents 93-54 in the first 15 minutes of games.
