Middle Tennessee State is giving Georgia Tech all they can handle at home. After three quarters, the Blue Raiders lead the Yellow Jackets, 35-21.
Benny Cunningham has been a problem that Georgia Tech hasn't been able to solve with the senior tailback running all over the Yellow Jackets' defense. He's carried the ball 15 times on the day for 140 yards and three touchdowns. Cunningham broke off a huge touchdown which would've given him four scores, but the play was negated due to a holding call.
The Blue Raiders took a 28-21 lead on a five-play, 68-yard drive highlighted with a spectacular 23-yard run by Cunningham, who ran over three Yellow Jacket defenders en route to the end zone. MTSU then took a two touchdown lead on a 75-yard pass play by Logan Kilgore to Marcus Henry, giving the Blue Raiders a 35-21 advantage with just under two minutes remaining in the third quarter.
The Yellow Jackets have their work cut out for them entering the final quarter.
