Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Charleston Rambo is poised for a big game against Georgia Tech on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets have allowed a 100-yard receiver in each of their last five games. Pittsburgh had two 100 yard receivers in their 52-21 victory over Georgia Tech last month. Rambo has been nearly as hot.

In eight games this season, Rambo has topped 100 yards three times. Rambo fell just short with five receptions for 99 yards against Virginia. After 12 receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns against Michigan State, Rambo has created a great rapport with Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke over the last two games.

Rambo has 16 receptions for 228 yards and two touchdowns in Miami Hurricanes victories over North Carolina State and Pittsburgh. Van Dyke threw for 751 yards, seven TDs and one interception in the wins over the Wolfpack and Panthers. Rambo has 30.36 percent of the Miami receiving yards in the last two games.

After being stout against the pass in their first three games this season, Georgia Tech has been porous in their last five contests. Georgia Tech allowed 124.33 passing yards per game to open the season against Northern Illinois, FCS Kennesaw State and what has been a pedestrian Clemson offense this season.

That number has inflated to 329.4 passing yards per game over the last five games by the Georgia Tech defense. Van Dyke has averaged 297.6 passing yards in the five games he has started. Rambo is one of the most


WRs in the ACC. The Miami pass offensive is the most


in the ACC.

Georgia Tech has been susceptible to allowing big plays. Miami leads the ACC in pass plays over 50 yards and Georgia Tech has allowed the most plays from that distance in the conference. The Miami pass offense against the Georgia Tech pass defense could be the biggest mismatch on Saturday.

The porous Yellow Jackets pass defense should open up running lanes for Miami and Jaylan Knighton on Saturday. Knighton and Rambo are two of the most explosive players in the ACC. Van Dyke has been pushing the ball downfield. Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee has opened up the Hurricanes playbook.

Next. Miami offense should continue rolling versus Georgia Tech. dark

Lashlee has become more confident in Van Dyke and the Miami offense has thrived the last three weeks. After shredding two of the best defenses in the ACC the last two weeks in North Carolina State and Pittsburgh, Rambo and the Hurricanes should continue to thrive against Georgia Tech on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium.
