Though it wasn't always pretty, Georgia Tech (5-4) got one hard-fought step closer to the postseason with a roller coaster 28-22 win over the Hokies in a game that came down to the final moments.

"He made what? Two completions", Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. On the second play of the next possession, Marshall connected with Ricky Jeune for an 80-yard touchdown to allow the Yellow Jackets to regain the lead. Jeune dove in and clipped the pylon.

"My teammates gave me confidence", said Alexander-Walker. "Having two completions for two touchdowns is great". The Jackets held VT to 116 yards rushing on the day.

In a game with several huge momentum swings, Virginia Tech rallied from a 21-9 deficit in the second half.

"We've got the best matchup we could possibly get", Fuente said. "Everything we did was a struggle offensively and we had a couple opportunities there to go freaking win the game and we took those". Bush came in for Jackson and helped pick us a first down. Virginia Tech hasn't registered 300 yards of offense since Tech's win over Duke on October 28, with the Hokies averaging just 278.5 yards of offense over the last two weeks. He threw for 140 yards. Marshall ended up running for 64 yards. Georgia Tech was able to overcome a late deficit with a quick-strike touchdown and hold on to beat No. 17 Virginia Tech 28-22 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Here's what we learned from Virginia Tech's Week 11 loss to Georgia Tech. Both were incomplete, including a deep pass down the middle for Cam Phillips that Kerr knocked away. On third and 10, Jackson threw a jump ball off his back foot, and after being deflected multiple times, the ball landed in the hands of sophomore receiver Eric Kumah for a 26-yard gain. Seven plays later Marshall dove off left guard for a 1-yard touchdown.

New life turned to good fortune on the next drive for Virginia Tech.

Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining.

The Citadel is coming off a fairly disappointing year where they finished 12-21 overall. We have not given up many of those. Just don't know how many times we're going to get down there, quite honestly.

"It's disappointing", Kumah said. I thought we had a good call. "We just didn't make the plays we needed to". Virginia answered with a touchdown to get back in the game. They missed last week's game at Virginia. Starting LT Jahaziel Lee missed the game with a lower body injury. After two negative yardage plays, Georgia Tech took to the air on third and 18.
