Georgia Tech and UCF play in the Gasparilla Bowl, which is held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. This is a matchup of two exciting new teams.

As a result of winning three about their last four games, the Knights became the only new team in the Big 12 to earn bowl status. For next season, the bowl game is a great way to get things going.

On November 18, they lost heartbreakingly to Texas Tech 24-23. To get to the playoffs, running back RJ Harvey ran for 136 yards and two scores in a 27-13 romp over Houston.

Even crazier was the Yellow Jackets’ path to bowl play. They beat previously ranked North Carolina and Miami and gave No. 1 Georgia some trouble late in the game.

Even though the Bulldogs had one of the best running defenses in the country, GT ran for over two hundred yards and lost 31–23.

In the last four years, Georgia Tech and UCF have encountered each other twice. In both games, the Knights beat the Yellow Jackets. In 2022, the Knights won 27–10 in Orlando.

Not every player has said they are not going to the bowl game, but less than five key players from UCF and Georgia Tech are likely to not go.

The most important loss is UCF cornerback Corey Thornton, who had 10 or more stops and was in the top 10 on the team. But a great deal of guys should still play in the bowl game.

There will always be changes when a coach leaves, but the change from Johnson, who used to be the head coach at Navy and has his own unique offensive plan, was always going to be overstated.

After five years and one change in coaches, Georgia Tech finally seems to be getting back on track. Even more amazing is how the Yellow Jackets have changed into a new, exciting team along the way.

Georgia Tech will play UCF in the Gasparilla Bowl on Friday with this new look. There are 4.5 points in favor of the Knights (6-6) and a total of 66.5.

The first thing you need to know about handicapping this game is that it is very likely to be close.

Two powerful attacks are going up against two defenses that are having a hard time and will be missing key players. Junior quarterback John Rhys Plumlee is the engine of UCF’s attack.

Plumlee was one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in college football. In just eight games, he threw for 2,073 yards as well as 13 touchdowns and ran for almost 500 yards and five scores.

The Yellow Jackets’ defense was bad in every way, but they were especially bad against the run, which should help Plumlee along with running back RJ Harvey have big games.

Kyle Kennard is Georgia Tech’s best pass rusher, so he won’t be there. This should also make things easier for Plumlee to defend the backfield. The Yellow Jackets’ attack can keep up with the Knights, which is good news.

GA Tech’s offense has reached a new level, just like UCF’s, thanks to a great showing from a quarterback who can do both running and passing. Junior Haynes King threw for 2,755 yards or 26 touchdowns and ran for 648 yards and nine more scores.

Ray James Stadium will host the game at 6:30 p.m. ET. The latest UCF vs. Georgia Tech odds from SportsLine opinion say that the Knights will win by 6 points, and the total number of points scored will go over or under 67.
