Cold numbers suggest a chilly finish for Georgia Tech


A complete list of teams Georgia Tech has beaten since routing Mississippi State on New Year's Eve in the 2014 Orange Bowl: Alcorn State, Tulane, Florida State, Boston College, Mercer, Vanderbilt and Georgia Southern.

Georgia Tech's record against Power Five teams (plus Notre Dame) since losing the Orange Bowl to Iowa on Jan. 5, 2010: 32-36.

Georgia Tech's ACC record (counting conference title games) since the 2009 season: 27-27.

Number of ACC programs that have hired new coaches since the 2013 season: Seven.

Georgia Tech's national ranking in total offense in 2014: 19th.

Georgia Tech's national ranking in total offense this season: 107th.

Georgia Tech's national ranking in total defense this season: 32nd.

Number of true road games Tech has played this season: One.

Number of true road games remaining: Three.

Date of Tech's last victory in a true road game: Nov. 29, 2014.

Bottom line: Maybe you're among those expecting a big finish from the Yellow Jackets. Me, I'm expecting more of the same. The 11-3 of 2014 was glorious. It was also a blip.
