I was fortunately able to make the trip up to Raleigh, NC this weekend to shoot GT’s first ACC away game against N.C. State. The game was expected to be a blow-out in favor of GT based on N.C. State’s disappointing performance from the previous week. However, in my opinion, this was not a “gimme” game since it was at N.C. State, and you can never count out a team fueled by desperation.
Georgia Tech pounced on the Pack for an early 21-0 lead, and went into halftime 21-7. The score really should have been 28-7 at half, but there was a highly questionable holding call on a long Roddy Jones touchdown run. Once again, Georgia Tech made a number of mistakes that cost them a number of additional points. In the end, Georgia Tech came out on top 45-35 which really didn’t reflect the outcome of the game. Personally, I think the score should have been closer to 56-21 due to some last minute (literally) garbage touchdowns by N.C. State after GT put in their second string players.
Georgia Tech is now 5-0, the first time since the 1990 National Championship season, and ranked #13 and still leads the nation in basically every offensive category. Woohoo! It’s good to be a Jacket!
