Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Vs. Clemson Tigers: Joshua Nesbitt Eyes Record Books

Georgia Tech quarterback Joshua Nesbitt has been slowly climbing his way up the record books, both Tech's and the ACC's,  for the last two years. His next major milestone may fall this Saturday, as he currently sits in second place for ACC career rushing yards by a quarterback with 2,718. The current record holder is Woodrow Dantzler with 2,761. Dantzler was quarterback for Clemson from 1998-01. 

Only 44 yards separate Nesbitt and the record, and he should be able to set it this weekend against Dantzler's former team because Clemson has never limited Nesbitt to less than 77 yards in three meetings. In 2008 the quarterback ran for 77, and last year he added 91 and 103 yards to his totals.

In fact, under Paul Johnson, Nesbitt has reached at least 44 yards on the ground in 25 out of 32 games.

If you are going to the game, chances are good that you will see some history being made.
