2) With 8 minutes left in the game, Georgia Tech was up 21-10 and had a 2nd and 8 deep in Hokie territory on the 14 yard line. A touchdown on this drive and the Jackets would likely ice the game. But on a pitch to the RB the Jackets fumbled and the Hokies' Davon Morgan recovered the ball ending the threat. This turned the game completely around and led to a quick Hokie TD drive to make the score 21-16.
3) With the game on the line at the 3:08 mark of the 4th quarter, facing 3rd and 7 from the Hokie 39 yard line, Georgia Tech QB Josh Nesbitt kept the ball on an option play and took it to the house to make the score 28-16. On this particular play, DE Nekos Brown came crashing down on the FB Jonathan Dwyer instead of leaving that to the defensive tackles and LB Barquell Rivers. Cody Grimm played the pitch man so if Brown would have gone after the QB on the play it would have very likely been stopped short of the 1st down. I'm willing to bet Coach Paul Johnson had recognized Brown crashing down on this play several times throughout the game and told Nesbitt to keep it because from the replay it definitely does NOT look as though Nesbitt ever considered actually handing it off to Dwyer. As it was, the Jackets blocked the play very well and Nesbitt made a big play to win the game for his team.
Gut-wrenching loss. I'm totally ill.
