Vols Top Tech In Double-OT Thriller

But despite an alignment advantage on an option play to the right, Marshall couldn't find enough daylight to the end zone, and his desperation pitch was ruled an incomplete pass, sealing the win for Tennessee.

After TaQuon Marshall scored his fifth touchdown of the game in the second overtime, Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson elected to go for two and the win. Jackson, who threw for 235 yards and ran for 101, became the first Hokie quarterback to pass for more than 200 yards and rush for more than 100 yards since Logan Thomas had 224 passing yards and 101 rushing yards versus Duke in 2013.

Quarterback Quinten Dormady's first start for Tennessee will be remembered for the finish. "He was able to high point the ball a couple of times, and he played strong". The sophomore receiver averaged 29 yards per catch as he hauled in four catches for 115 yards and two scores.

Kelly finished with 130 yards on 19 carries with four touchdowns.

Trevor Daniel blasted a 70 yard punt for Tennessee. We knew that this was going to be a game that you had to show some resolve and some grit, and you had to play complementary football. Following an 18-6 defeat to Alabama in 1930, the Vols went another 28 games without being beaten, their second-longest streak ever.

Kyle Larson , who led 124 laps in the first 200 of the race , had to make two stops during the yellow as the result of a tire rub. From then, all Hamlin had to do was last another two laps. "It wound up being a great race and that's all you can ask for".

"Offensively, we did not play to our standard or expectation", Jones said. Marquez Callaway also looked like an extremely talented ball player filling in for the injured Jauan Jennings. "We have to get a lot better and make tremendous progress, but just really proud of our players". He's a wide receiver that's capable of taking over a football game, and that's something that's been missing in Butch Jones' offense since he arrived on Rocky Top.

The optics were no better during Monday's game, as Tennessee struggled against the Yellow Jackets, projected by most as a middling ACC team, and one of the Volunteer assistant coaches is holding up a giant trash can on the sideline like it's the Stanley Cup. Georgia Tech led 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Yellow Jackets are what they are under his watch. Kelly chewed up 22 yards on a nifty run down to the Tech 12-yard line and a few plays later, he capped the drive with a 1-yard plunge.

Going for two in the second overtime was not the right call. Georgia Tech brings back five defensive backs who combined for eight interceptions a season ago. That was the way things stood at the half.

Georgia Tech has found one heckuva quarterback to replace Justin Thomas.

Then with another chance to salt it away in the closing minutes, running back J.J. Green ripped a 36-yard run deep into Tennessee territory only to fumble it away and give the Vols another chance to drive 95 yards for the tying score. Well, actually it does when you consider it doesn't matter that you spent a whole evening dominating your opponent on both sides of the ball if both of your fumbles turned into touchdowns for the other team, and if you missed a makeable field goal, and if you had a potential game-winning one from short range blocked at the end of regulation. It was a dry, and boring game with not much doing besides the Yellowjackets reeling off 5-yards a play.
