Georgia Tech Beats Duke Wins ACC Coastal *UPDATED*

The Duke Blue Devils came into Bobby Dodd Stadium on Senior Day to face a hungry Yellow Jackets squad that hoped to clinch a share of the Coastal Division Title, and hopefully have a chance at the ACC Championship as well.  The Blue Devils matched the Yellow Jackets score for score for the first two quarters.  Then after halftime, the defense produced a few stops, which allowed the offense to take charge and push the team ahead by multiple scores and assured Georgia Tech the victory.



With a 42-24 victory on Saturday over the Duke Blue Devils, Georgia Tech clinched at least a tie for the Coastal division with the Miami Hurricanes.  The Canes have the tie breaker of course due to their win versus the Jackets earlier this season (42-36 in OT) after coming back from a 21 point deficit.  This meant that Miami would need to have 4 ACC losses for the Yellow Jackets to win the division.  After defeating Duke this guaranteed Ga Tech a 5-3 record in the ACC with one ACC game left to go for Miami.  This coming Saturday the Canes face Duke.  If they lose, then Georgia Tech would advance to the ACC Championship game.  However early Monday morning the wait was over.  Miami imposed a Bowl Ban for the 2012 season on itself so that it would hopefully relieve the punishment coming from an NCAA investigation.  This clinched the ACC Coastal title for the Yellow Jackets, who after suffering through a harsh season are now on the brink of playing for a BCS Bowl game.




Highlights

Senior quarterback Tevin Washington came into his last collegiate home game with a swagger long since seen.  He played with precision and poise, especially in the passing game, which was the helped seal the deal for the Yellow Jackets.  Washington completed 6 of 10 passes for 102 yards and 3 TD passes.  He also rushed the ball a team high 19 times for 63 yards and a TD.

It was a big rushing day as well for several Yellow Jacket backs.

Zach Laskey 18 carries for 72 yards
David Sims 11 carries for 70 yards 1 TD
Orwin Smith 10 carries 67 yards

Laskey also had a big day in the passing game catching 2 passes for 40 yards and 1 TD, and the spark plug RB Robert Godhigh caught 2 passes for 35 yards and 2 TD's.  One of his catches was yet again a highlight everyone needs to see.




The defense came out in the second half a different squad.  Despite allowing a Touchdown on a long opening second half drive, the next three drives would end in a Punt, a Turnover on Downs and an Interception.  Not a bad way to clinch a victory on Senior Day!






Next Game: vs. UGA Bulldogs (November 24, 2012)

It's Rivalry Week!  It's also time for some "Clean Old Fashioned Hate", otherwise known as the UGA vs GT game.  The Bulldogs are ranked #3 in the country coming into the game and will be playing #2 Alabama in the SEC Championship game the week after.  The key to Ga Tech standing a chance in this game will be stopping the two headed monster at RB for the Bulldogs that they call "Gurshall".  If they can keep them in check, and force QB Aaron Murray into some bad throws and allow their offense to dictate the pace of the game, then the Yellow Jackets will have a chance to win this game and possibly ruin UGA's shot at a National Championship.

Yellow Jackets Explode For 68 Points In Shootout Win Over UNC!

The Yellow Jackets in their defeat of the Tar Heels and a Miami loss to Virginia have crept back in the ACC Coastal Division picture.  The Jackets/Heels 68-50 game will go down as one of the greatest ACC games of all-time.  The set record for most points scored in an ACC conference game.  Both teams combined for 1.085 yards of offense and 111 points.  11 different players scored touchdowns in the game.  There was hardly a punt seen.  It was a back and forth fight for the the first two quarters and then Georgia Tech was able to push ahead late in the third quarter, and the defense was able to hold the lead for the remaining 15 minutes.  That is about the only highlight I can give either defense on this day.  It was a game for fan of high octane offense.  UNC's Bryn Renner and Giovani Bernard combined for 400+ yards of offense, but the Yellow Jackets offense lead by backup QB Vad Lee exploded in a way that made all Georgia Tech fans hungry for more Vad!



Highlights


The young RS-freshman quarterback, Vad Lee, returned back to his home state of North Carolina with a mission in mind...To show what UNC passed up on.  He had envisioned his entire life that he would play for the Tar Heels, but was heavily recruited by Georgia Tech and the rest is history.  Lee would get his first snaps on the second series of the game, after Tevin Washington had led the team to an opening drive score.  The results were so good for Lee, that Washington never saw the field for the rest of the day.  He completed 6 of his 10 pass attempts for 169 yards and a TD.  This was the highest passing day for Ga Tech all season long.  Lee also was the Jackets leading rusher.  He ran the ball 23 times for 112 yards and 2 TD's. 




Orwin Smith also had a big day picking up 83 yards on 11 carries and scoring a TD.  He also chipped in the passing game, catching a pass for 39 yards.  B-back's David Sims and Zach Laskey combined for 130 yards on 18 carries and a TD. 


The biggest highlights of the day may have been from RB Robert Godhigh who rushed for 41 yards and 2 TD's on just 5 carries.  He also caught 32 yard pass for the team's lone passing touchdown.  Godhigh is showing everyone that height is just a number, and he can produce just as much as any running back in the ACC.





Chris Tanner has emerged as THE starting kicker for the Yellow Jackets.  The senior walk-on finally got his chance to secure the job when the two scholarship kickers blundered their way into Johnson's doghouse.  Tanner took full advantage of this.  To a point that Coach Johnson said he wanted to kiss him he was so happy by his efforts.  Tanner was perfect on the day 2for 2 in field goals with a long of 35 yards and 8 for 8 in his point after attempts.  His 14 point output was the highest by a Ga Tech kicker in three seasons.




Next Game: vs Duke Blue Devils (November 17, 2012)


Duke will be fighting for a chance at an ACC title opportunity, as well as Ga Tech this coming weekend.  Both teams have had contrasting seasons.  The Blue Devils, lead by Coach David Cutcliff and QB Sean Renfree, started out this season on fire, but have simmered down the latter half.  The Yellow Jackets began the season 2-4 (two OT losses) and are winners of 4 of the last 5 games, and have placed themselves in a chance to win the ACC Coastal Division.  If Duke loses to Ga Tech, but can beat Miami the next week; then the Jackets will be going to Charlotte to play in the title game against Florida State.  The game will also be senior day, and might give Tech the added advantage needed to overcome this offensively potent foe.
