Monday Night College Football: #25 Tennessee Faces Georgia Tech in Atlanta

This game should be a close one to close out the long college football weekend.

After last night’s wild UCLA game, only one college football game remains this weekend. That game will be played at 5pm PT tonight when the #25 Tennessee Volunteers visit the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a game that will be played at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN.

This matchup between the SEC and the ACC is viewed as basically a tossup. The hometown Yellow Jackets are three-point underdogs, according to SB Nation sister site From the Rumble Seat.

As I was researching this game, an interesting name popped up. That name was Georgia Tech wide receiver Ricky Jeune. His name just seemed familiar to me and, while I had to look him up, I remembered that Jeune played his high school ball for St. Joseph Regional HS in New Jersey, where I played four years of high school football and who beat Serra Gardena in the Honor Bowl last year. So, I’ll be pulling for my fellow Green Knight and his Yellow Jackets.

All told, this game should be a dandy.

Who do you think will win this one? Leave it in the comments below.
