The Sun Bowl is a rare strength vs strength match up. Georgia Tech’s triple option averages over 316 yards per game while Utah’s defense gives up only 98. Additionally Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei is the best player in the game and is a projected first round pick in April. Tasked with controlling Lotulelei will be Yellow Jacket guard Omoregie Uzzi. The talented junior guard has grown into a legitimate prospect this year should he choose to leave college.
