Georgia Tech Vs. N.C. State: Garbage Touchdowns Ruin Bets, Sully Final Score

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were set to avenge last year's 45-28 loss to the N.C. State Wolfpack with a 45-21 victory. Great! The same score, but one touchdown better. Then Tyler Purvis caught a meaningless touchdown in the final minute. Fine! The same score. But then!

With seconds left, backup quarterback Synjyn Days fumbled, allowing another Wolfpack touchdown to make it 45-35. Our Vegas-minded associates weren't happy with this development.

Why was Days running a play instead of taking a knee? Some would chalk this up to hubris on Paul Johnson's part, but you're looking at a coach who's maximizing experience opportunities for a player who will compete for a starting job in a year or two.

Also, really don't think Johnson cares about how pretty the final score looks. Not that he's happy about the fumble, of course.
