Georgia Tech (minus-10) at N.C. State
Paul Johnson's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have been on fire for the first third or so of the 2011 season. Not much was expected of Tech before the season but it has been running the triple option to perfection and dismantling opponent after opponent. A few weeks ago the Jackets piled up more 600 yards of rushing alone in a 66-24 burial of Kansas.
The Jackets were in Raleigh and nothing seemed to be slowing down as they built the 42-14 lead with 10:07 left in the game. That obviously was going to now mean an easy Tech cover, right? After all they're up by 28 and only laying 10!?!?!?
It was 45-21 with five minutes and change to go and the Wolfpack were taking over on their own 24-yard line with backup quarterback Tyler Brosius now in the game. And 13 plays and five minutes later the deficit became 17 on a Brosius touchdown pass. But so what? The spread was 10 and there were literally only 36 seconds left and an onside kick was not happening.
Tech's backup signal caller Synjyn Days was already in the game and came out to pretty much run out the clock. Instead of just going into the victory formation and taking a knee Days fumbled the ball and a la Herman Edwards against Joe Pisarcik and the Giants, Brandon Bishop picked up the piskin and took it to the house. The extra point provided the final score of 45-35.
Two touchdowns in the game's final half minute for basically an amazing backdoor push. Yikes!
