Virginia Tech Football: 3 takeaways from Hokies' loss to Georgia Tech
13 November, 2017, 02:17
Virginia Tech returns home to host Pittsburgh Saturday for Senior Day. When the Hokies have it, they need to take advantage.
It seemed as if the Hokies were going to be able to overcome early mistakes to escape with a win, but the defense couldn't stop the Yellow Jackets from creating one more big play. However, the Hokies stalled once again, this time at the 8-yard line. "We did not come through on them, but that was the deal". The play was blown up, and the Hokies turned it over on downs.
Georgia Tech went up 21-9 when Marshall found receiver Brad Stewart open on a post pattern for a 60-yard touchdown, the first of Stewart's career, on a third-and-18 situation. Virginia Tech converted just 4-of-15 third down attempts. "That's just the way we're built right now".
On its final possession, Virginia Tech converted a pair of fourth-down plays and faced third-and-1 at the Georgia Tech 32 with plenty of time to pull off the winning touchdown against a team that had lost three games by a total of six points. Jackson said afterward that he was taken out of the game for Bush to run the ball three straight times. 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.
Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining. Virginia Tech had four players out with injuries: WR C.J. Carroll, CB Adonis Alexander, RB Steven Peoples and OT Yosuah Nijman. In this game you can give up one, maybe two explosive plays and win the football game. After the loss on Saturday, head coach Justin Fuente was asked about how the offense can get things going and become more explosive.
"We had the best match-up we could possibly have", Fuente said after the game. "We've got press coverage with our best guys". "Everything we did offensively was a struggle and we had a couple of opportunities to go win the game". "Watch our - we've played nine games, 10 games - we're not going to run up and down the field on anybody".
"Making first downs and driving the football were both hard, and they have been", Fuente said.
"The fade to Kumah probably could have been called pass interference". Virginia Tech dropped to 7-3 (3-3) on the year, while Georgia Tech improved to 5-4 (4-3). But Tyrie Jackson and Horne answered with back-to-back layups as the Hokies closed on a run for a 52-42 halftime lead.
