With the ball short of midfield, and a long 3rd and 13 to convert, defensive coordinator Al Groh dialed up pressure to get to Dwight Dasher. And get to him the Tech defense did. Cornerback Dominique Reese came from Dasher’s back side and hit him hard enough to knock the ball loose which was recovered by Anthony Egbuniwe.
Starting at the 38 yard line, it only took the Jackets five plays to get into the end zone. After converting a fourth down, Nesbitt completed a 26 yard pass to Stephen Hill for the touchdown.
Jackets up by 21 points, 4:36 left in the third quarter.
