3 takeaways from Hokies' loss to Georgia Tech

Not only because the Yellow Jackets came up with a 28-22 upset victory over No. 17 Virginia Tech for their fifth win of the season, which got them one step closer to bowl eligibility.

The 4-4 Yellow Jackets have lost their last two games, which were both on the road. When Georgia Tech LB Victor Alexander came up with sack in the third quarter, it ended a three-game sack-less streak.

The winning score came with 6:30 remaining when Marshall connected with Ricky Jeune for 80 yards. Virginia Tech had one last chance, but the Hokies failed on third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 plays at the Georgia Tech 32 to turn the ball over on downs with 1:09 left.

Virginia Tech (7-3, 3-3) got 153 yards passing from Jackson, who completed 14 of 26.

Mr Ciobo would not be drawn on whether Canada could be cut adrift and the trade pact could proceed with just other nine countries. The official disputes the notion it was a snub because the leaders would mingle at APEC events over the next 24 hours anyway.

Georgia Tech responded on its next drive with the key play coming from running back Nathan Cottrell who broke off a 69-yard run. Marshall capped the drive off six plays later with a touchdown and the lead was 14-3.

Even though Stewart had started 25 games, it was the first scoring catch of his 34-game career.

It took Virginia Tech almost three quarters to show some life offensively, but the game got interesting late. Marshall finished 2-8 for 140 yards and two touchdowns. A chop block penalty and a missed 43-yard field goal by Georgia Tech kicker Brenton King gave the Hokies life. Virginia Tech dropped to 7-3 (3-3) on the year, while Georgia Tech improved to 5-4 (4-3). Virginia Tech had four players out with injuries: WR C.J. Carroll, CB Adonis Alexander, RB Steven Peoples and OT Yosuah Nijman.
