In Georgia Tech's 37-26 loss versus the Virginia Tech Hokies, Yellow Jackets linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu's 15-yard personal foul on Logan Thomas proved to be costly, as he was flagged for punching Logan Thomas. The penalty was called on a key third-and-long and a stop would've given Tech the ball with the late lead.
Attaochu was consequently suspended by the team for a half-game for Saturday's ACC matchup between Georgia Tech and Duke in Durham, North Carolina.
Coach Paul Johnson responded to the controversial penalty on Monday:

CPJ. "I did not see it (the punch) during the game. you have to pay a price when you mess up. It's out of character for him. He's embarassed."
