After electing to defer to the second half, Georgia Tech opened on defense. Everyone has been talking about MTSU quarterback Dwight Dasher’s rushing abilities, but it was his arm that drove the Raiders to around midfield with a couple of long third down completions.
Tech safety Jerrard Tarrant stopped the drive, intercepting one from Dasher and returning it 30 yards. The pick was his 2nd of the season and 3rd of his career.
The Jackets took the early lead with an option pitch to the left side with Orwin Smith taking the ball in from 20 yards for the score. Jackets 7, Raiders 0.
