It took two turnovers by the punt return unit and one by the offense to do it, but the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets defense has finally given up a touchdown to the Air Force Falcons. It’s a shame — the Jackets D has played very well, giving up only a 14-yard scoring drive to open the fourth. Jared Tew punched into the end zone, and Jonathan Warzenka made up for some of his earlier struggles by strutting in for the two-point conversion.
Air Force’s biggest offensive play remains that second-quarter fake punt, which can be pinned on special teams as well. Plus their first field goal was set up by a punt return. Special teams!
Georgia Tech outgained Air Force 95 yards to 15 in the third quarter, but they don’t put yards on the scoreboard. They do on these modern, fancy video score boards like they have here in Shreveport, but you know what I mean.
Jackets RB Orwin Smith just broke a 23-yard run into Falcons territory. Let’s see if Tech can hang onto the ball here. Thirteen minutes sounds like a long time to add just one touchdown, but this game is flying by.
