Trouble spots for the Tigers...

QB Tevin Washington: He's averaging 61 yards per game and leads the ACC in rushing touchdowns with 11, after tying a school record with four in last week's loss to Middle Tennessee. The Tigers know him well - he set a Georgia Tech position record against Clemson last season by rushing for 176 yards.

RB Orwin Smith: The Paul Hornung and Doak Walker award candidate does everything for the Yellow Jackets - run, catch and return kicks. He's averaging 20 yards per reception this season.

OG Omoregie Uzzi: The returning All-American and Outland Trophy candidate leads an experienced offensive front.

OLB Jeremiah Attaochu: He's a pre-season All-ACC pick and one of the conference's most dynamic pass rushers out of Al Groh's 3-4 set.

DE Izaan Cross: He's a consistent performer who is on the Hendricks Award watch list.

DB Isaiah Johnson: He leads the team in tackles with 26, including 2.5 for loss and one sack.

CB Rod Sweeting: He leads the Yellow Jackets with four PBUs.

CB Jemea Thomas: He finished off the Tigers last season with two fourth-quarter interceptions.

LB Brandon Watts: He leads the team in solo tackles with 16.

KR Jamal Golden: His 56-yard punt return against Miami was Tech's longest since Jerrard Tarrant's 85-yarder against Clemson in 2009.

RB Zach Laskey: He's Tech's second leading rusher with 60 yards per game.
