Florida State's Defensive Tackles Key against Georgia Tech's Struggling Interior Offensive Line

Florida State should have the edge on the interior against Georgia Tech, which has struggled to block quality defensive tackles in 2015.

Georgia Tech lost a lot of offensive talent after 2014, but no loss has been more significant than former All ACC offensive guard Shaq Mason. The Yellow Jackets could rely on Mason to win his matchup on the interior last season, enabling them to get other linemen to the second level and forcing defenses to commit more players to stopping the inside run. Since Mason's departure, Georgia Tech's young interior offensive linemen have struggled against good defenses. Expect more of the same against a quality set of Florida State defensive tackles this week.
