The ball is flying, and it’s going to hit a guy in the endzone, and that guy’s not going to be happy.
That’s what happened Sunday night, when Georgia Tech scored the winning touchdown in overtime to beat Florida Atlantic.
The Yellow Jackets have scored a total of eight touchdowns over the past three weeks.
The last time they scored a touchdown in regulation was Nov. 18, when they defeated Florida Atlantic 34-27.
The Bulldogs haven’t scored a score since Oct. 20, when the Yellow Jackets held on for a 35-32 win over Georgia Southern.
It was a fun night for Georgia Tech fans who spent Sunday morning on the field, and they were treated to some exciting plays in the second half.
The game started out in pretty ugly fashion.
The Yellow Jackets trailed 27-14 after a 3-yard run by sophomore tight end Andrew White.
That lead eventually went to Georgia Tech after a field goal by junior defensive end Jelani Hamilton with 3:25 remaining.
But Florida Atlantic scored on a fumble recovery with 2:20 left to tie the game.
But Florida Atlantic was forced to punt the ball to the Florida State 22 after a penalty.
It was the Yellow Knights only score of the game, and the result came off a play where White was blocked from the play, and he was able to score a first down.
The Bulldogs answered with a field-goal to tie it at 29.
Then, with 1:16 left in the third quarter, sophomore running back Austin Jackson got into a physical fight with Florida State quarterback Jordan Lynch.
The two went at it for several minutes, with Lynch eventually throwing a punch and Jackson punching him.
After that, Florida Atlantic ran out the clock, but the Yellow Bulldogs scored two touchdown drives to get to the Georgia Tech 25.
Georgia Tech quarterback J.T. Barrett threw for 317 yards and two touchdowns and Georgia Tech ran for a field touchdown.
