Tennessee beats Georgia Tech in double overtime, 42-41: 3 takeaways

Alabama vs. Miami announced as 2021 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game

"I think I'll be able to bounce back pretty quick". A Georgia Tech loss and the mumblings about Paul Johnson will turn to audible grumblings.

With a 44-yard completion to Ricky Jeune and a 42-yarder to Qua Searcy, Marshall compiled an astronomical passer rating of 167.6.

The Jackets outgained the Volunteers by almost 300 total yards and ran 37 more offensive plays. John Kelly ran for 128 yards and four touchdowns, including the tying score with 1:29 left in regulation and both TDs in OT.

New quarterback Quinton Dormady looked lost for much of his first career start and the defense looked overwhelmed as Georgia Tech held onto the ball for more than 40:00 Monday night. Running back KirVonte Benson also topped 100 yards, rushing for 124 yards on 26 carries with a touchdown of his own. "We thought, if somebody is investing in this, we want to be part of it", Tennessee Vols fan Jewel Bunch said. This game and the one on Sunday night between the Texas A&M Aggies and the UCLA Bruins definitely had us on the edge of our seats. They overran us and it might have been a little selfish of me. I'm not sure they would've had enough time to score twice. But we didn't, they did. Give them credit: "We didn't and they knocked the ball out". He scored five rushing touchdowns, the most ever by a Georgia Tech player in a single game, and his 249 rushing yards were the most ever by a Tech quarterback. Through the first possession of the third quarter, Georgia Tech led 21-7, ran 54 plays to Tennessee's 28 and had outgained the Vols 306 yards to 94.

Johnson wasn't second-guessing his decision after the game. They really were. When you play Tennessee, your objective is simple: You're trying to limit the number of times the Pride of the Southland Band strikes up its fight song. "When they got rolling the second half, there wasn't much stopping them". But Marshall was stuffed as he tried to cut inside, and a desperation pitch was ruled an incomplete pass, ending the game.

"It will be one of those four guys", coach Paul Johnson said coyly. "We don't get very many opportunities to do that, so when we do play a team from the SEC, it's important to show what we can do on our side". "But you've got to put it in the past and move in".




With under 5 minutes to play, Tech's Benson fumbled and Micah Abernathy pounced on the loose ball at the Tennessee 7. The job likely will be an ongoing matter, as Underwood shanked a 45-yarder in the third quarter and had the game-winning try blocked.

Tech answered quickly, moving 75 yards in seven plays for a 28-14 lead with 3:08 left. His offense spent the evening manhandling the Volunteers along the way to 655 yards, including an outrageous 535 on the ground. Once again it came on a long, grueling drive.

Georgia Tech (0-1) got a record performance from quarterback TaQuon Marshall, who was making his first start. Two plays later, Kelly took the handoff up the middle for a two-yard touchdown to put UT up, 42-35, marking the Vols' first lead of the game.
