Independence Bowl, Georgia Tech Vs. Air Force: Anthony Allen Scores, Jackets Up 7-3

Even as ESPN’s announcers were lamenting the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets loss of QB Joshua Nesbitt, the Wreckbone was wrapping up a 12-play, 69-yard touchdown drive. B-back Anthony Allen pounded in from five yards out, his eighth touchdown of the season. He has 42 yards already, with a 17-yard burst the biggest running play of the day so far.

Pregame jokes about this being the shortest bowl game ever are proving insightful, as the first quarter is already over. Can you imagine driving to Shreveport for two hours of football? Apologies to our many Shreveportian guests.

Air Force QB Tim Jefferson, an Atlanta native, is two of three passing for 18 yards. The Falcons pass a good bit more often than the Jackets do, and with somewhat better efficiency, and Jefferson’s crisp pass to Chaz Demerath for 18 yards was the Academy’s highlight so far.

Tech wins the first-quarter yardage battle 87 to 52, with all but two of the Gold and White’s yards coming on the ground.
