Virginia Tech Offense Struggles Again, Hokies Chase Points Early

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' celebration after their upset win over No. 17 Virginia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium got even more exciting after the game ended when Tre' Jackson got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. The Hokies opted to attempt a fourth and two from Georgia Tech's 8-yard-line, likely passing up three points. Virginia Tech has scored just 40 points in the last two weeks, with six of those coming from Greg Stroman's interception return for a touchdown vs. Georgia Tech on Saturday. Marshall rushed 22 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns.

Georgia Tech (5-4, 4-3 ACC) broke a two-game losing streak, beat its first ranked team since knocking off the Hokies past year and pulled the Yellow Jackets to within one win of becoming eligible to play in a bowl game. "Everything we did was a struggle offensively and we had a couple opportunities there to go freaking win the game and we took those".

"We had the best match-up we could possibly have", Fuente said after the game.

Shegog knocked the ball away from Yellow Jackets returner Brad Stewart, and three Virginia Tech players were around the ball in what turned out to be a mad scrum.

3 No turnovers: Georgia Tech's offensive approach limits possessions by holding on to the football for most of the game. "We have been in the right place, but we were caught in poor leverage and they made us pay". I'll take the Bulldogs. On third and 10, Jackson threw a jump ball off his back foot, and after being deflected multiple times, the ball landed in the hands of sophomore receiver Eric Kumah for a 26-yard gain. Virginia Tech did have a little trouble getting off the ground, entering halftime with a relatively trim 10-point lead.

Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining. "I guess the way we move the ball well opened up spots for me and made things a lot easier".

It seemed as if the Hokies were going to be able to overcome early mistakes to escape with a win, but the defense couldn't stop the Yellow Jackets from creating one more big play. "We just didn't make the plays we needed to". Against Georgia Tech, it was much of the same.

Defensive coordinator Bud Foster answers post game interview questions following a 28-22 loss to the Yellow Jackets, Nov. 11, 2017. LB Brant Mitchell and FS A.J. Gray both missed last week's game against Virginia. Virginia Tech plays its final home game on Saturday against Pitt.
