Minnesota Golden Gophers          

The Golden Gophers enter this Wednesday’s Bowl Game sporting a 6-6 record. Since Minnesota struggled severely in conference play this season, they finished 5th in the West Division of the Big Ten thanks to the 3-6 record they posted in the conference. Considering that the program was coming off a 5-7 season, it’s safe to say that they were able to make some improvements in 2018. But will this improvements be enough to take care of Georgia Tech? Probably not seeing as how Minnesota scores 28.5 per game while Georgia Tech scores 35.6. Defensively things are pretty even with Minnesota giving up 27.9 per contest and Georgia Tech allotting 28.9.

Players to Watch: Zack Annexstad (1,277 passing yards, 9 TD, 7 INT), Mohamed Ibrahim (936 rushing yards, 7 TD, 5.5 AVG), and Tyler Johnson (1,112 receiving yards, 10 TD, 74 REC).

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets    

The Yellow Jackets come into this year’s Quick Lane Bowl matchup flashing a 7-5 record. But with a 5-3 record in ACC play, Georgia Tech managed to finish 2nd overall in the Coastal Division of the conference. Although that wasn’t enough to garner an invite to the ACC Championship Game, it was enough to see Georgia Tech make this year’s Quick Lane Bowl. Now the Yellow Jackets look to avenge their recent 45-21 loss to No. 5 Georgia by adding a postseason win to their resume. All signs point to a Georgia Tech victory this Wednesday, since they come in a much better offense and a much better season all together.

Players to Watch: TaQuon Marshall (824 passing yards, 5 TD, 4 INT), Tobias Oliver (807 rushing yards, 12 TD, 5.6 AVG), and Brad Stewart (268 receiving yards, 3 TD, 15 REC).
