Wake Forest threw up a few hail mary’s during its final 15 second possession, but was unable to make magic happen. As a result, Georgia Tech picks up the (much more difficult than expected) ACC road win. Paul Johnson has still not lost consecutive games with the Jackets.
Georgia Tech was able to win the war despite losing the T.O.P. battle and despite GT dropping the ball (both fumbles and passes) way too much, the defense again not being fantastic, and the O-line letting the Wake Forest Sackaholics get to Nesbitt way too often. But whatever, at the end of the day Nesbitt threw 2 touchdown passes and ran the ball for 72 yards to lead GT to victory.
