# 7 GT Rolls Up NC State 49-7

Atlanta GA- What a ride it has been for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. A week after knocking off Miami and shooting up into the #7 spot they impress yet again. Josh Nesbitt overshadowed the strong defensive performance by throwing for 253 yards and 3 touchdowns and also running for 133 and 2 scores as the Yellow Jackets made it look easy last night with a 49-7 win over winless NC State.

" These guys are fired up and want to really challenge for the National Title" says Coach Millhimes. The Yellow Jackets outgained the Wolfpack 544-147!

The GT defense was once again the story. The defense recorded 10 sacks and 2 interceptions. Both INT's were returned for scores which included Mario Bulter's CFB lead leading 6th of the year that went 88 yards back for a Touchdown in the first quarter. The other interception was a 23 yard return by DT Robert Hall who grabbed a tipped pass and ran with all his 310 lbs could go. Hall had 1 of the sacks as Peters and Barnes each recorded 3.

The main stat was third down conversions as NC State was just 2-15 and Tech was 5-10.

Nesbitt took the team down on the opeing kickoff and hit Thomas on a 27 yard pass to make it 7-0. Tech would then score on back to back INT returns to make it 21-0 after one and the route was on.

The Second quarter got off to a big start as GT faced a 3rd and 10 at there own 49. Nesbitt stood back to pass and pushed off a tackle. Then he took off up the middle of the field and was not touched as he went 51 yards for the touchdown and a 28-0 lead. GT would only allow a 91 yard kickoff return as the only touchdown for NC State.

The Third quarter saw Thomas get hit again for a 10 yard touchdown and Nesbitt added a 1 yard scamper before they sat the rest of the game.

" I know we can do this. Coach Millhimes has told me to lead by example and I plan on doing theat" says Nesbitt.

A big challenge nest week as GT goes to North Carolina to play the #12 Tarheels(3-0). North Carolina beat GT 24-21 last year.
