Tech QB Justin Thomas gets congrats after another TD drive.
It seems like they can’t figure them out. Ga Tech’s 38-7 victory over Vanderbilt is their 3rd in the last 4 tries vs teams from the SEC. Except for their loss at home last year to Georgia, an explosive Tech offense has over 30 in each of the games. It was more of the same at Bobby Dodd Stadium in this Saturday’s win over Vandy. The teams traded TDs in the 1st quarter before the Yellow Jackets scored the last 31 points.
As we mentioned in our previous post, the Jackets would need to take to the air in order to beat the Commodores. They took to the air right away with a 85 yard TD toss and run by Thomas to Marshall. Tech scoring concluded with another big pass play of 77 yards by backup Matthew Jordan to Clinton Lynch. Overall Georgia Tech finished with 511 yards of total offense, including a season high 222 passing. The defense was stout too holding Vanderbilt to just 85 yards rushing.
Tech now faces their stiffest test thus far when #5 Clemson comes to Atlanta just 5 days from now. The prime time national TV Thur night tilt is the #GTWhiteOut game. With this new wrinkle in their offense Georgia Tech may give the Tigers a real run for their money.
