When Crappy Defenses Collide

Yellow Jackets Overcome Seminoles In Shootout, 49-44

To say that neither team's defense had a good night would be quite the understatement. In the first half, FSU scored a touchdown on each of their five possessions. It felt like the -- and not just because there was over an hour of weather delays that interrupted the first quarter. Thankfully, Tech's defense pulled it together in the second half to put the brakes on the Seminole score-fest.

As the score reflects, the Tech offense fared much, much better, with Josh Nesbitt having another fantastic week. This week, he had 140 yards rushing, personally running in 3 of Tech's scores (and passing for another). But possibly his coolest moment of the game was when he stripped the ball right from the clutches of the FSU defender who had just recovered a Tech fumble. Hardcore.

This win marks the first GT victory in Tallahassee. Ever. Tech moves up to No. 19 this week. Next Saturday is the big match up -- GT vs Virginia Tech. Let's hope Coach Johnson can shake things up on defense before then.
