No. 17 Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech: 3 keys for the Hokies

Share

After an eight-play drive stalled at the Yellow Jackets 24-yard line, kicker Joey Slye drilled a 41-yard field goal to make it 3-0 Virginia Tech. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 261 yards and augmented that with two explosive touchdowns through the air. Georgia Tech was able to control it despite completing just one pass - a 60-yard touchdown - through three quarters. This time, Marshall's pass was right on target and Jeune dashed away for an 80-yard touchdown. With the Hokies driving at the Georgia Tech 32-yard line, Jackson took to the air on third and 1.

Josh Jackson threw for 153 yards on 14-of-26 passing for Virginia Tech, which had just 258 yards of total offense, 154 yards below its 412.9 yards-per-game season average. Eric Kumah caught six passes for 82 yards. In the first quarter, Johnson dialed up a counter play to A-back Nathan Cottrell, which went for 69 yards and set up Georgia Tech's first touchdown. Marshall scored on a 3-yard run to give Georgia Tech a 7-3 lead.

Johnson's "great" play-calling started on the first play of the game.

The 5-11 Holloway, 25, will attempt to defend his featherweight title for the first time, in Detroit. There is no word yet from the UFC on a possible replacement opponent for Lamas as of yet.

In the second quarter, the Hokies put together a drive that took them deep into Georgia Tech territory. The Yellow Jackets improve to 5-4 overall, and 4-3 in the ACC. Seven plays later Marshall dove off left guard for a 1-yard touchdown.

Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining.

But, on a day when he made a number of curious decisions, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente called a pair of passes rather than running for the first down. Virginia Tech had four players out with injuries: WR C.J. Carroll, CB Adonis Alexander, RB Steven Peoples and OT Yosuah Nijman. Bush tried to scramble for the first down but Georgia Tech stopped him for a loss to end the drive.
