However, they both resulted in Yellow Jackets touchdowns as Georgia Tech beat the 17th ranked Hokies 28-22 in an ACC game played at Bobby Dodd Stadium and seen live on WGNT-TV. The junior quarterback finished 2 of 8 passing out of the triple-option. Nathan Cottrell had a 69-yard run, setting up Georgia Tech's first touchdown, a 3-yard run by Marshall. Marshall capped the drive off six plays later with a touchdown and the lead was 14-3. Bush tried to scramble for the first down but Georgia Tech stopped him for a loss to end the drive.

Sure, the Hokies held the Yellow Jackets under their season average, but that doesn't excuse the fact that they essentially didn't have to worry about the pass and were still gashed on the ground.

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

And, finally, Georgia Tech won a close game.

Virginia Tech took a 22-21 lead with 7:27 to play in the game when Greg Stroman intercepted Marshall's pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown.

Later in the quarter, the Yellow Jackets had fourth and 1 at their own 46. I really don't feel like we're going to have tons of opportunities to score. After two negative yardage plays, Georgia Tech took to the air on third and 18. Virginia Tech dropped to 7-3 (3-3) on the year, while Georgia Tech improved to 5-4 (4-3). The Hokies drove to the 32 but failed on fourth-and-1 when Ajani Kerr knocked away Josh Jackson's pass into the end zone that was intended for Cam Phillips.

Trailing 7-3 in the second quarter, the Virginia Tech made a decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 at the 8, instead of taking a chip-shot field.

"I don't think we had quite as many missed assignments and things", Johnson said.

Even though Stewart had started 25 games, it was the first scoring catch of his 34-game career. He dialed up a long pass down the seam to wide receiver Ricky Jeune.

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