#2 Yellow Jackets Survive Trip To Miami

Nebraska Jumps GT and Notre Dame to become new #1.......#2 GT over #20 Miami 24-20......#6 OU Keeps rolling with a 47-20 win voer Iowa St...#10 Miss St continues to win with a 45-14 victory over Kentucky.....Tiger Woods Slept With My Wife!!!!!

Miami, FL- The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are alittle upset over dropping to #2 in the nation. They havent lost a game in there last 22 straight games. Yet, they were dropped in the poll to #2 behind Nebraska. They almost suffered there first loss of the year to rival Miami if the defense had not bailed them out

The GT defense allowed just 197 yards from Miami including an impressive -14 in rushing as Tech rallied late and held on to beat #20 Miami 24-20.

"This was an Impressive win" said Coach Millhimes " Coach Knight and the Hurricanes were ready for us and almost had our number" said Millhimes

Jordan Luallen looked horrible in this game. 7-15 for 120 yards and 0 touchdowns to go along with 2 picks. One of which was returned for a touchdown. He did have 47 yards rushing.

The main story was that of Richard Watson. The starting Fullback went down on the second play of the game and remained on the bench all game with an unknown injury. His replacement was David Drummond who rushed for 83 yards and 3 touchdowns on 22 carries.

The game was tied at 7 at the half and GT scored 10 points in the 3rd thanks to some interceptions of there own. Rashaad Reid picked off Jacory Harris midway through the third which set up a 25 yard field goal from Cutler to make it 10-7. Miami had a weird set next round. Back to back delay of games made it 3rd and 25 at there own 10. They failed to convert and Punted to GT who had great field position. Gt would drive down and run it in from 1 yard out to take a 17-7 lead going into the 4th.

Harris would get the Hurricanes moving and they converted ona key 4th adn 7 at there own 45 early in the 4th to keep the ball moving. Harris would hit Johnson for a 34 yard strike to make it 17-14. Georgia Tech would come back down the field and Luallen would hit Hill on a 34 yard pass to the Miami 1 yard line. Thats where Drummond took it in to take a 24-14 lead with 1:15 left.

Drummond seals the deal with a 1 yard TD run

Miami would drive down on GT's prevent defense and score with 22 seconds left. A failed 2 point conversion didnt help Maimi as they failed to get the onside kick and tech ran out the clock.

Another test next week as the Yellow Jackets meet #24 Clemson.

Georgia Tech Cruises Past 8th ranked Alabama

#1 GT Rolls Past #8 Alabama 45-14......Michigan St Destroys Virginia 63-7....#9 OU looks to get revenge on undefeated Texas from last years game......#10 FSU Looks for payback as well against Wake Forest...Wake upset FSU last year

Atlanta GA- The Georgia Tech Yellow jackets continue to show why they are the #1 ranked team in the nation. The manage to rally when down and even learn to progress as the season goes along. Just ask QB Jordan Luallen.

Luallen had his best passing performance of the season putting up 220 yards and a touchdown to go along with 105 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground as the #1 GT Yellow Jackets won there 19th straight game in a 45-14 win over #8 Alabama.

"We were hoping that Jordan would start to show signs of Josh Nesbitt in him and he has started to show he can be a weapon at both ends" said Coach Millhimes.

Georgia Tech really didnt have much to worry about the whole game as they outgained the Crimson Tide 470-174. They also held Bama to just 1 3rd down conversion on 9 attempts. Bama also failed on two 4th down conversions. Tech's defense is showing its face again this year after leading the nation in sacks and INT's last year.

Tech also got 88 yards and a touchdown from fullback Richard Watson.

GT jumped out early 14-0 in the first after Luallen hit Sims on a 35 yard touchdown pass and Luallen ran it in from 2 yards out. The scoring continued in the second as Bama produced 4 straight 4 and out series. Luallen again had a 4 yard rushing touchdown and capped the scoring with 11 seconds left with yet another 4 yard run to make it 28-0 at the half.

Bama got on the board in the third when Robert Green returned a Luallen pick 63 yards for a score. GT answered though the next drive on a 4 yard TD run by Watson.

Former starter turned backup QB Jaybo Shaw was put in during the 4th where he hit Fisher on a 35 yard touchdown throw to give GT a 45-7 lead. Bama would tack on a touchdown before it was all said and done.

Bama's QB Star Jackson could not get in rythem. He threw for 92 yards on 5-12 passing.

Georgia Tech Gets Miracle Pass To Save Season

#1 GT gets early Christmas Miracle....#2 ND Over Purdue 24-23....#3 Nebraska Beats Army 35-14...#6 Florida Survives Scare against Auburn 17-10...#7 Michigan Shuts Out #12 VT 28-0.....#19 FSU all over #5 West Virginia 42-17......Miss St opens up season 3-0...Miami Drops heartbreaker to Ohio St 24-10.....#13 Penn St upset by Missouri 31-24.....Michigan St wins!!!!

Norman OK- #1 Georgia Tech does not have much firepower this year. There Offensive passing game has really declined and many are wondering if Oklahoma was finally the team to stop the Yellow Jackets 16 game win streak dating back 3 years. It looked like it for the first half of today's ballgame before fate took over.

Is he down as time expires?

In a game in which tech trailed 20-0 at the half, they managed to take a short lead and trailed by 5 with 17 seconds left. Thats when offensive captain and senior Roddy Jones took over. Jones returned the kickoff 72 yards to the OU 19 then Jordan Luallen tossed a 19 yard touchdown pass to Jones with no time left as Georgia Tech pulled off a miracle win over #11 Oklahoma 29-26.

This game saw the starting HB for Oklahoma Jermie Calhoun get knocked out of the game in the second quarter after rushing 6 times for 36 yards. Georgia Tech also lost there starting fullback Richard Watson for the game in the 3rd. He had 47 yards on 12 carries.

"Im still in shock" said Coach Millhimes. "We were being crushed in the first half and our defense awoke in the second half and allowed us to make some big plays to get back into this thing.

GT trailed 20-14 with 3:00 minutes left in the 4th when FS Roderick Sweeting picked off Landry Jones and returned it 74 yards for the touchdown and a 21-20 lead after the PAT.

Ou came right back down the field and scored when they drove down the field using nice run plays. It was capped by a Miller 2 yard touchdown run that gave them the lead 26-21 after a missed 2 point conversion. Thats when Roddy Jones took over.

Jones finished the game with 5 carries for 24 yards and 2 catches for 31 yards and the touchdown.

Georgia Tech drove down the field on there first posession and missed a 46 yard field goal. They dropped 3 passes on there opeing drive alone. OU would hit a 52 yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead after one.

Next quarter was all OU. Senior SS Sam Proctor returned 2 interceptions in the quarter for touchdowns and OU added a field goal to make it 20-0 at the half.

GT outgained OU 248-214. Total yards was GT with 442-315.
