Northern Illinois @ Georgia Tech
Last Season Records: Georgia Tech 3-7; Northern Illinois 0-6
What to Know
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the Northern Illinois Huskies will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 4 at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field to kick off their 2021 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for Georgia Tech (3-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 0-6 last-season record, NIU has set their aspirations higher this year.
A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Few squads threw more interceptions than the Yellow Jackets, who were picked off 13 times. To make matters even worse for Georgia Tech, NIU threw only two interceptions last season, the fifth best among all teams in the nation.
Georgia Tech has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. These early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
