TaxSlayer Bowl Prediction Roundtable – What’s Going To Happen

TaxSlayer Bowl prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen between Georgia Tech and Kentucky.

Jeff Bartl

As far as I’m concerned, Georgia Tech overachieved this season. The Yellow Jackets lost most of the games they were expected to lose (Clemson, Miami, Pitt, North Carolina) but pulled off a couple of stunners by beating Virginia Tech and rival Georgia. Paul Johnson leading this team to an 8-4 record is a solid coaching job.

Oh, and I hate everything about Kentucky sports. Go Jackets.

Jonathan Bass

Georgia Tech wins, Yellow Jacket fans are somehow angry over a 9-4 campaign, Paul Johnson makes a passive aggressive remark about whether GT even cares about football and 680 The Fan in Atlanta gives it all about three minutes of airtime before discussing whether UGA will win the SEC in Kirby Smart’s second year.

I actually really like the combo of Boom Williams and Benny Snell, and think that Kentucky will be excellent next season. It’s also great that they’re in a bowl – removing that monkey from Mark Stoops’ back. Ultimately, that damn triple option from Tech is confounding enough to tilt the scales in GT’s favor.

Robert Judin

This one is going to be ugly. It’ll be a tug-of-war matchup between Kentucky and Georgia Tech. But the Wildcats are going to get a huge boost from Stanley Boom Williams and Benjamin Snell Jr. Stephen Johnson will deliver a key pass to Garrett Johnson to put six points up on the board, and Kentucky will end up taking the win.


Brian Stultz

Kentucky has some major momentum going into this one, though that doesn’t always matter after a month-long layoff between games. Wildcat running backs Benny Snell and Boom Williams are a powerful combination, and will be the difference in this one. Kentucky wins.
