3 takeaways from Hokies' loss to Georgia Tech

3 takeaways from Hokies' loss to Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech quarterback TaQuon Marshall completed only two passes, but both went for touchdowns, and the Yellow Jackets upset No. 17 Virginia Tech 28-22 on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

It was the longest touchdown pass of the season for the Yellow Jackets (5-4, 4-3), surpassing Marshall's 60-yard scoring play to Brad Stewart early in the second half. Virginia Tech hasn't registered 300 yards of offense since Tech's win over Duke on October 28, with the Hokies averaging just 278.5 yards of offense over the last two weeks.

"I said, "Tre", what are you going to do if we don't win the game?'" Johnson recalled.

The former actor was acquitted of the double-murder of his ex-girlfriend Nicole Brown and her pal Ron Goldman in 1995. Simpson allegedly went on a rampage in a Las Vegas bar, getting himself tossed by security and permanently banned.


"We got the best matchup we could possibly get", Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said.

Kickoffs are a killer: Georgia Tech permitted a long kickoff return again, this one a 71-yarder by Virginia Tech's Travon McMillian. Georgia Tech is 0-3 against ranked teams this year, including one-point losses to then-No. "We have been in the right place, but we were caught in poor leverage and they made us pay". When the Hokies have it, they need to take advantage.

"It wasn't me taking him out to reprimand him", Fuente said.

The offensive struggles have been a problem in several games this season, but the Hokies have been unable to overcome them in consecutive weeks. Both were incomplete, including a deep pass down the middle for Cam Phillips that Kerr knocked away. Defensive end KeShun Freeman, in the game as a blocking back, took the direct snap and ran 3 yards for a first down. Virginia Tech did have a little trouble getting off the ground, entering halftime with a relatively trim 10-point lead. We felt like we had a good call.

Virginia Tech (7-3, 3-3) got 153 yards passing from Jackson, who completed 14 of 26. "We just didn't make the plays we needed to". In total, seven Tech rushers had positive yardage.

Few people are talking about this particular play. Georgia Tech plays much better with the lead than it does when its forced to play from behind. "Watch our - we've played nine games, 10 games - we're not going to run up and down the field on anybody".
