Independence Bowl, Georgia Tech Vs. Air Force: Reggie Rembert Return Sets Up Falcons Field Goal

The Air Force Falcons took a 3-0 lead against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets after a 43-yard punt return by star CB Reggie Rembert put Air Force in position to kick a field goal. Tech punter Scott Blair booted a line drive, and Tech’s coverage was unprepared for the ball coming down so quickly Blair recovered to make a diving tackle that may have saved a touchdown.

Neither offense has gotten rolling, though Air Force has gotten 44 total yards on its two drives. Tech gained 18 on its only drive so far before punting.

Air Force’s offensive looks are much more varied than Tech’s, as expected. They run from the I, shotgun sets, bone sets, and a three-back I-formation stack that sort of looks like a quarterback-center unit has lined up behind the actual quarterback.

Tech QB Tevin Washington has 13 yards rushing and completed a screen for two yards. Air Force’s Asher Clark leads all Falcons with 16 yards on the ground.
