Josh Jackson passes against Georgia Tech.

The 2014 and 2015 victor of the Ashley Dearing Award scored his first collegiate touchdown on a 60-yard catch and run in the Yellow Jackets' 28-22 win over #17 Virginia Tech Saturday. The junior quarterback finished 2 of 8 passing out of the triple-option.

"We've got the best matchup we could possibly get", Fuente said.

"I didn't feel like we were going to have tons of opportunities to score", Fuente said. "We started out that way, we had two on the first three plays, but we settled down and didn't have as many missed assignments".

The Yellow Jackets scored again on a 79-yard drive that included a fake punt. Against the Tigers, the Yellow Jackets posted a season low in yards as they faced a superior athletic defense. Georgia Tech plays much better with the lead than it does when its forced to play from behind. Bush tried to scramble for the first down but Georgia Tech stopped him for a loss to end the drive. "It felt great. Just seeing all the fans and players getting hyped for me because they knew how bad I wanted it". Defensive end KeShun Freeman, in the game as a blocking back, took the direct snap and ran 3 yards for a first down. It fell just beyond his fingertips, but it wouldn't be the last time Johnson would dial that play up.

Later in the quarter, the Yellow Jackets had fourth and 1 at their own 46.

Quarterback TaQuon Marshall said he told Stewart this summer that his touchdown-free streak would come to an end this year.

The 4-4 Yellow Jackets have lost their last two games, which were both on the road. "Sometimes it goes your way".

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the game came in the final minute.

Georgia Tech responded on its next drive with the key play coming from running back Nathan Cottrell who broke off a 69-yard run. Benson kept the Yellow Jackets in front of the chains with an average of 3.9 yards per carry while Marshall added 2.9 yards per carry.
