Paul Johnson, not so much. Georgia Tech heaped 655 yards of total offense on the nation's No. 25 team.

Daniel pinned the Yellow Jackets inside the 20 five times. Marshall scored from a yard out for Georgia Tech but Tennessee answered when Kelly was ruled to have crossed the goal line upon a review to tie the game at 35-35.

(11:49 - 4th) Marquez Callaway 50 yard touchdown pass from Quinten Dormady.

You never would have guessed that the Vols had eight months to prepare for Georgia Tech's option-oriented flexbone.

The Yellow Jackets went on to score their third rushing touchdown of the game in the second half after an 80-yard drive, pushing their advantage to 21-7.

At that point, there were seven players to the right of the hashmarks. He's supposed to get blocked by guard Parker Braun, No. 75 for Tech. Marshall was met at the line and driven sideways. Even had the ball not hit the ground first, sophomore running back KirVonte Benson was stopped just shy of the goaline. The immediate ruling was an incomplete pass. Time for Tennessee to adjust on the fly. Last week, Johnson said that he was "worried a lot more about a zillion positions than I am quarterback".

We screwed it up. That should have been a walk-in ... "We found a way to win when we didn't play our best".

You just knew he was going to have a cliché ready. Heck, it's not the 10th.

Someone asked if his defense had gotten tired. If your defense is frazzled by that, you need to change your conditioning regimen. You can also see it all happening.

Johnson: "If they wore down in this game, they better get their butts home". What can be done about that?

But some reporters called out Trump , noting that he had not witnessed any "horror or devastation first hand". The storm is now threatening the region near the Texas-Louisiana state line.

"I got two fingers, in the middle (on the ball)", said Bain, a walk-on defensive lineman transfer from Tusculum College.

All the way up until the failed final play, this was a Johnson classic.

On Tuesday, the ACC announced that Georgia Tech starting quarterback TaQuon Marshall won the honor for quarterbacks and running backs. A sixth of his touches went to the end zone for scores, two of which came in overtime.

Time will tell if Benson and Marshall can continue to bear out their coach's confidence, and if the defense and kicking game can earn more of his trust.

With Georgia Tech's triple option offense, opportunities for Tennessee's offense would be limited and as the first half played on, Dormady and the Vols had a hard time finding an offensive rhythm.

But you cannot doubt Tennessee's will to win.

And given the problems the Jackets had kicking the ball, as well as on defense, in the second half, it made Johnson's decision after the second of two touchdowns the two teams exchanged the extra frames easier. But they didn't make it, didn't win.

There also was that counter play, which should have been an easy two-pointer for a Georgia Tech victory, especially since its offensive line kept blowing Tennessee defenders from here to Knoxville. The Tennessee defense stepped up on the next Tech possession as they held on third down, forced a punt by Pressley Harvin III which he shanked, and the Vols got the ball at the UT 37 with 8:49 to go. Somehow the Jackets are 0-1.

The "five-technique" is No. 19 Darrell Taylor, a standing end aligned outside Georgia Tech's right tackle.
