After starting the second half with three and outs on both sides of the ball, Georgia Tech actually obtained a first down. Later on the drive, at their own 34, Tech went for it on 4th and 1 for the second time today. In Paul Johnson’s favorite situation, they kept the drive alive on a pitch to Charles Perkins as he picked up about 10 yards. Two plays later, Nesbitt fumbled the ball and Tech recovered for a loss of 5 yards. One sack later, it was time to punt away.
A drive later, Tech's defense does its job and forces Wake to punt, but Georgia Tech's punt returner, Jerrard Tarrant, could not handle the ball. Wake recovered Tarrant’s fumble and began its drive on Tech’s 19-yard line. One first down later, Josh Adams carried the ball from the 3-yard line into the endzone for a touchdown.
Skylar Jones, Wake’s fourth string quarterback, is being evaluated on the sideline as Joshua Nesbitt is being sacked on the field to end the third quarter.
