BYU has had success against the option under Bronco Mendenhall, especially in the Cougars' 41-17 win over Georgia Tech last year. BYU is hoping to continue that success and extend its current two-game win streak as well.

The Yellow Jackets, meanwhile, come into Provo on a two-game losing streak after falling to Virginia Tech and Miami. A non-conference victory could get Georgia Tech back on track.

Here's a look at the matchup and what is at stake in Saturday's contest.
