Quick Lane Bowl – Dec 26

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (7-5)  vs  Minnesota Golden Gophers (6-6)



Coach:  Geoff Collins

Georgia Tech Players to watch:

***Freshman DB/KR Juanyeh Thomas (6-3/205)

Thomas is averaging 25.5 yards per kickoff return as a true freshman, which ranks fifth nationally among true freshmen and 24th overall. He has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns (both over the final two games of the regular season – 77 yards vs. Virginia on Nov. 17 and 100 yards at No. 5 Georgia on Nov. 24), which is tied for second nationally overall and tied for the most by a true freshman. 

***Sophomore P Pressley Harvin III  (6-0/240)

Georgia Tech has another special teams weapon in punter Pressley Harvin III.  Fifteen of his 31 punts (including 13 of the last 17) were downed inside the 20-yard line, which helped Georgia Tech rank 11th nationally with a 41.0-yard net punting average.

*Junior LG Parker Braun  (6-3/280)

Braun is the driving force behind an offensive line that has paved the way for the nation’s No. 1 rushing offense (335.0 ypg) this season. The 6-3, 280-pounder started all 12 regular-season games at left guard, stretching his streak of consecutive starts to 31.

***Freshman JACK/STING Charlie Thomas  (6-2/190)

The Thomasville, GA, native has shown the traits necessary to be successful in Nate Woody’s 3-4 defense: strong fundamentals along with an ability to make splash plays.



Coach:  P. J. Fleck

Minnesota Players to watch:

*Junior WR Tyler Johnson  (5-11/210)

Johnson caught 74 passes for 1,112 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 74 catches, 1,112 yards and 10 touchdowns are the second most ever for a Gopher in a single season, and no Golden Gopher has ever recorded the combined numbers Johnson posted this year. 

*Junior DE Carter Coughlin  (6-4/250)

Coughlin tied for the Big Ten lead in sacks with 9.5 this season and tied for the team lead with Cashman with 15.0 tackles for loss. The junior also forced four fumbles this season and made 46 tackles, 32 of which were solo stops. 

Senior LB Blake Cashman  (6-2/235)

Cashman led Minnesota with 104 tackles, which tied for fifth in the Big Ten. He also broke up five pass and forced one fumble, which he returned 40 yards for a touchdown against Purdue.  

***Freshman RB Mohamed Ibrahim  (5-10/205)

Ibrahim rushed for 936 yards, scored seven touchdowns in nine games, and was also named All-Big Ten Honorable Mention by the media.
