When the Cavalier football team takes the field in Atlanta on Saturday, it will be looking to crack, on many levels, the best defensive unit in the ACC. Georgia Tech comes in leading the conference in many defensive categories.

The Yellow Jackets have sacked opposing quarterbacks 20 times this season, marking the most in the ACC. They also hold opponents to 11.6 points per game, also tops in the conference. Georgia Tech is also first in rushing defense and second in total defense when it comes to ACC statistics.

The Yellow Jackets' Morgan Burnett also presents a threat when it comes to passing. The sophomore leads the ACC in interceptions with five.
