When Virginia travels to Atlanta on Saturday, the Cavaliers will go up against one of the most dangerous offenses in the country. Georgia Tech leads the ACC in rushing offense with 248.1 yards per game on the ground.

Quarterback Josh Nesbitt and running back Jonathan Dwyer form a tough tandem in the rushing dominated offense. Dwyer leads the ACC with 97.7 rushing yards per game, and has found the endzone four times so far this season. The sophomore tailback scored a touchdown in last year's match up in Charlottesville. He is fitting into Paul Johnson's offense very well, according to Virginia head coach Al Groh.

The Yellow Jackets enter this match up 3-1 in the ACC, 6-1 overall. They are the only conference team to have reached three ACC wins, and are the only team in the conference that is already bowl eligible. The home team has won this match up 12 of the last 13 times.
