ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech linebacker Quayshawn Nealy expects no drop-off when junior quarterback Hutson Mason makes his first career start for Georgia.

It's been a recurring theme this year for Georgia's offense - when one playmaker goes down, someone else fills the void.

Even though Aaron Murray, Keith Marshall, Malcom Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley will be unable to play when the Bulldogs arrive Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium, Nealy believes Georgia still has enough weapons to cause problems.

Look no further than tailback Todd Gurley, whom Tech coach Paul Johnson compared to Herschel Walker.

Johnson says if Gurley "isn't the best running back in the country, he is certainly part of a small line."

The Jackets (7-4) have lost 10 the last 11 series matchups with Georgia (7-4).
