Yes, Virginia Tech did allow 219 yards on the ground last week to Miami so that might spell trouble today against Georgia Tech.

Georgia Tech was a live dog in September and threw the first couple of weeks in October but the Yellow Jackets look like they're running out of gas to me.

"He made what? Two completions", Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. Jeune dove in and clipped the pylon. I'll take the Bulldogs. "Having two completions for two touchdowns is great".

Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored 24 points, Kerry Blackshear Jr. added 23 and Virginia Tech beat Detroit Mercy 111-79 Friday night in a season opener.

"We're trying to stay on a number, Fuente said". Bush came in for Jackson and helped pick us a first down. But to hold Marshall under 70 yards and to hold the Yellow Jackets to just 4 of 11 on third downs (and 1 of 3 on fourth) was pretty solid work. He threw for 140 yards. Marshall rushed 22 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns.

The one time Georgia Tech did complete a pass in the first three quarters, it was a 60-yard touchdown. Kumah finished with a career-high six catches for 82 yards in the loss.

Georgia Tech gets back to action on the road at Duke next Saturday at 3:30 p.m.in another ACC Coastal matchup. Georgia Tech is 0-3 against ranked teams this year, including one-point losses to then-No. Both failed to be completed, securing the win for the Yellow Jackets. Seven plays later Marshall dove off left guard for a 1-yard touchdown.

Shegog knocked the ball away from Yellow Jackets returner Brad Stewart, and three Virginia Tech players were around the ball in what turned out to be a mad scrum. He also returned two punts, one of them for a season-best 21 yards. After a pass interference penalty, the Hokies scored on a 14-yard run by freshman Sean Savoy, who ranged far to the right, reversed his field and outran the Georgia Tech defenders to the end zone. We have not given up many of those. "That's just the way we're built right now".

"It's disappointing", Kumah said. "I guess the way we move the ball well opened up spots for me and made things a lot easier". "We just didn't make the plays we needed to".
