The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders pulled off a major upset as they went into Bobby Dodd Stadium and handily beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday afternoon, 49-28. The game was essentially a back-and-forth affair in the first half as both teams went into the intermission tied 21-21.
But the second half was a much different story as MTSU held Georgia Tech scoreless in the third quarter while scoring two touchdowns of their own, giving themselves a two touchdown lead at 35-21 heading into the final quarter.
In the fourth, it was all MTSU as they put two more scores on the board while holding the Yellow Jackets to just one and when the dust settled, the Blue Raiders emerged victorious while Georgia Tech was left hanging their heads. MTSU racked up 510 yards of offense in the game to the Yellow Jackets 425, while also forcing Georgia Tech into committing four turnovers.
