Boston College Vs. Georgia Tech: Paul Johnson calls kicking game 'a mess'

Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson called the team's kicking game "a mess" following the Yellow Jackets' 20-point win against the Boston College Eagles.

Georgia Tech was able to snap its three-game losing skid with a win against the Boston College Eagles on Saturday, but Tech head coach Paul Johnson knows his team left some points on the field.

Junior kicker from Dawsonville David Scully missed a pair of field goal attempts. Jeremy Moore made his lone 32-yard field goal attempt but failed on an extra point try. Justin Moore was also unsuccessful on a field goal. That means the Yellow Jackets went 1-4 on field goal tries, and 4-5 on PATs.

Here was Johnson after Saturday's game.

"Our kicking game was a mess. The problem right now is we lost our holder, so that causes a lot of problems. We left 10 points out there. We did enough on special teams to lose twice against a better team."

That's where Tech is fortunate in this one, having not played a very good team in trying to snap its losing streak. The Jackets won by 20 points, but to a Boston College team with just one win on the season and going through a pretty long five-game losing streak of its own.
