No. 25 Tennessee holds off Georgia Tech in 2 OTs

No. 25 Tennessee holds off Georgia Tech in 2 OTs

His 249 rushing yards were the most ever by a Georgia Tech or ACC quarterback, breaking the Tech record of 199 yards set by Eddie Prokop versus Tulsa in the 1944 Sugar Bowl and the conference record of 226 set by Louisville's Lamar Jackson against Texas A&M in the 2015 Music City Bowl. "(I thought) whatever I have to do". "Obviously, he had a big hand in helping us win the football game".

"We talked about our will to win", Jones told ESPN's Maria Taylor, who was the first person to present Jones with a microphone after Tennessee defensive end Darrell Taylor stopped Georgia Tech's attempt at an all-or-nothing 2-point conversion to end the game.

"The resolve and resiliency of our defense, even though we gave up [535] yards rushing, we still managed to force two takeaways, and offensively, we didn't turn the football over, which was paramount to winning the football game".

Warrior lived up to his last name, finishing with a combined 13 tackles and assists from his strong safety position and earning high praise from Vols coach Butch Jones.

The last thing Tennessee's offense needed is to play without its top receiver, but Jauan Jennings is expected to miss most of the season, perhaps up to 12 weeks, due to a dislocated wrist, as reported by Volquest.com and other outlets. "He played with a toughness, and he played with a great will to win". Dormady, in his first start, finished 20 of 37 for 221 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Georgia Tech led 7-0 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, sophomore Daniel Bituli, who finished with a career-high 23 tackles, forced the first fumble of his career to jumpstart an Orange and White scoring drive.

But the biggest difference maker for Tennessee was John Kelly, who found his groove to the tune of 19 carries for 128 yards and four touchdowns.

Georgia Tech ran 7:06 off the clock on the ensuing drive, ending on a one-yard rush and good PAT to pull ahead, 14-7.

Tennessee evened the score with 8:11 left in the half on a 1-yard dive by Kelly. After Tennessee was whistled for a false start that moved the ball back to the 10-yard line, Dormady floated a pass to the corner of the end zone and Callaway came down with it.

Tennessee's offense answered, putting together a 61-yard drive in just over a minute. The Yellow Jackets possess just four days to prepare for the Gamecocks. The speedster did the rest for 50 yards to bring Tennessee back to within seven at 28-21 early in the fourth. The Vols then marched 93 yards down the field using a 40-yard catch by Callaway and two runs by Kelly for 27 yards and a touchdown to tie the game, 28-28.

Said walk-on defensive lineman Paul Bain - quite possibly the most important hero of this win - as to why the Vols have so often staged these comebacks: "We're just cut from a different cloth than a lot of teams".

In the second half, what can I say about Marquez Callaway? "We have a short week and a quick game coming up".
