The Miami Hurricanes have a tall task in containing Georgia Tech's explosive offense. If they can do that, their own rushing attack should give them a good chance at an upset.

Miami and Georgia Tech both enter ACC play at 2-1, and if they want to see 3-1 the Hurricanes will have to find some way to contain the Yellow Jackets' explosive offense. Georgia Tech put up 56 points against Virginia and is No. 3 in the FBS in rushing yards and 15th in points scored.

Defensive lineman Shayon Green has 23 tackles so far this season, including 1-1/2 for a loss. Tyriq McCord had two sacks in Miami's 38-10 Week 2 victory over Bethune-Cookman. They'll both have plenty of opportunities to stop Georgia Tech's rushing attack, and they'll need to make the most of them.

Miami boasts a rushing attack of their own, led by freshman Duke Johnson. He picked up an astounding 19.3 yards per carry in the Canes' season-opener against Boston College, but was limited to just 19 total yards in their loss at Kansas State. Miami will need his best effort on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets are the favorite in the matchup, but is Miami can find a way to contain their explosive offense, they should be able to make a game of it.

Game Time: 3 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: ESPN3
Odds: Georgia Tech favored by 14-1/2
