Georgia Tech quarterback TaQuon Marshall completed only two passes, but both went for touchdowns, and the Yellow Jackets upset No. 17 Virginia Tech 28-22 on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Hokies (7-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) went ahead 22-21 when Greg Stroman returned an interception 24 yards for a touchdown off a awful pass by Marshall with 7:27 left.

Georgia Tech wide receiver Brad Stewart: The junior caught a 60-yard touchdown pass, the first of his career. In fact, Marshall had just 64 yards rushing on 22 carries - and average of 2.9 yards per carry. 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.

"We got the best matchup we could possibly get", Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said.

Virginia Tech immediately answered with its first touchdown. "I think we just need to work harder in practice this week and not let the Georgia Tech and Miami losses affect us for Pitt and UVa. We have been in the right place, but we were caught in poor leverage and they made us pay".

Another three passengers were rescued by the teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) late in the night. The state government on Sunday announced an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakhs to the families of the bereaved.

The Hokies took advantage of the miss with a 12-play, 74-yard drive capped by Jalen Holston's 8-yard touchdown run that ended the third quarter and narrowed the lead to 21-16. "Like, it's just not going to happen guys", Fuente said.

Safety Corey Griffin on closing the deal: "We knew what the situation was and if you look at the past they made one more play than we did". Jackson said afterward that he was taken out of the game for Bush to run the ball three straight times.

WHO WE LIKE: Virginia Tech.

Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining.

Tennessee parts ways with head coach Butch Jones
Regardless of preseason projections, a 4-6 overall record and 0-6 mark in the SEC was not what anyone wanted to see in Knoxville . Yet the awful effort showed that the team had quit on Jones or didn't consider him a coach for whom to show its best effort.

Virginia Tech (7-3, 3-3) got 153 yards passing from Jackson, who completed 14 of 26. "It's disappointing. I felt like we should have won".

Jackson needs to give a big thank you to Marshall, Jeune and Ajani Kerr for helping the Jackets win because it turned into quite a memorable proposal on The Flats. Georgia Tech has allowed seven kickoff returns or 38 yards or longer. He's also a quiet, unselfish young man and hopefully he gets to play just as much in the final two regular-season games and the bowl game as much as he did Saturday. LB Brant Mitchell and FS A.J. Gray both missed last week's game against Virginia.

Few people are talking about this particular play.

Georgia Tech: Hits the road for its final conference game against Duke. "Watch our - we've played nine games, 10 games - we're not going to run up and down the field on anybody".
