Kennesaw State vs. Georgia Tech Preview

We are less than a week away from the season opener of 2013. The Owls will again host Georgia Tech at the Owls Nest to open the spring but this year, the paper work is all submitted. Last year, the Owls beat the Yellow Jackets 9-2 but had to take a forfeit for not submitting the team roster by the league deadline. Last year’s game was the first ever meeting between the two schools.

Kennesaw State enters the game coming off a 13-7 victory over Georgia State in a scrimmage.

The Owls enter 2013 losing three starters from last year’s squad while the Jackets only lost two. The Owls will rely on upperclassmen Brad Jones and Casey Newton on offense, while seniors Tom Mudrak and Kyle Teasdale will anchor a solid defensive unit that returns all three starters from 2012.

On the other end, the Jackets bring back a lot of young talent from last season. Freshmen filled the top four spots on the points list for Tech in 2012, led by Michael Thomas who finished with 47 points.

Saturday’s forecast is calling for cold and breezy.
