Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech enter halftime tied 7-7 in what has turned into a defensive affair in the first half. Its not a real surprise that the Hokies are getting defensive but the Yellow Jackets have been up to the task as well.
Georgia Tech held the Hokies to 137 yards despite holding over a five minute advantage in time of possession. Virginia Tech began four drives in Yellow Jackets territory but only came away with one score. Logan Thomas connected with tight end Eric Martin on a five-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put the Hokies up 7-0. Georgia Tech's lone touchdown was set up by a Hokies' mishap on special teams when freshman punter A.J. Hughes couldn't handle a snap.
The Yellow Jackets took advantage driving 24 yards in three plays capped off by a nice 12 yard run by Robert Godhigh. Georgia Tech hasn't been able to generate much offense finishing the half with just 104 total yards. Tevin Washington is 4 of 7 for 52 yards passing but hasn't found much room to run in the ground game. The Yellow Jackets averaged just 2.8 yards per rush in the first half. Zach Laskey leads the team with 28 yards on seven carries. Orwin Smith has all 52 of Georgia Tech's receiving yards.
