Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech Final: Hokies Win In Overtime, 20-17

After leading a courageous comeback, Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington's fatal mistake cost his team in Lane Stadium's first-ever overtime game as they were defeated by Virginia Tech, 20-17.

On a 3rd-and-6 at the Virginia Tech 10 yard line, Washington tried to extend a broken play, rolled out and lofted a pass into the endzone that was intercepted by Hokies defensive back Kyle Fuller. Virginia Tech then needed only a field goal, which Cody Journell converted to win the game for No. 16-ranked Virginia Tech.

After a defensive battle for the first three quarters, it was an offensive back-and-forth that ultimately decided the game. The Virginia Tech offense came to life first, scoring on a 42-yard pass from Logan Thomas to freshman Demitri Knowles, the first reception of his career, to put the Hokies on top, 14-10.

Georgia Tech answered, methodically driving down the field 72 yards in just over seven minutes to take a 17-14 lead with only 0:44 left on a Deon Hill touchdown reception from quarterback Tevin Washington. Washington converted a fourth down during the go-ahead drive, rolling out and finding B.J. Bostic for a 19-yard gain.

Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas then mounted a courageous drive of his own, driving 51 yards in under a minute to set kicker Journell up for a 41-yard field goal to tie the game, 17-17.

Logan Thomas finished the game completing 21-for-38 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Yellow Jackets quarterback Tevin Washington finished 10-for-15, 96 yards, one touchdown and one interception along with 63 yards rushing.

No. 16 Virginia Tech now takes a 1-0 record into their next matchup with Austin Peay. Georgia Tech will face Presbyterian.

Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech Score Update: Last-Second Hokies Field Goal Pushes Game To OT, Tied 17-17

A last-second field goal from Virginia Tech kicker Cody Journell tied the game, 17-17, and pushed this season-opening battle into overtime.

Hokie quarterback Logan Thomas drove his offense down the field with only 0:44 remaining to set up Cody Journell with the game-tying field goal.

In what was a defensive battle, the Virginia Tech offense finally came to life midway through the fourth quarter. With around nine minutes remaining in the game, Hokies wide reciever Marcus Davis caught a pass from Thomas and worked his way down the field for a 35-yard gain.

Although Davis had to leave the game with injury on the play, his replacement, Demitri Knowles, caught a 42-yard pass in the endzone on the following play, his first career reception, to put Virginia Tech ahead 14-10.

Georgia Tech then answered. On a 13-play, 72-yard drive that took just over seven minutes and included a scrambling 19-yard pass on a fourth down, the Yellow Jackets took the lead on a Deon Hill 10-yard reception from Tevin Washington with 0:44 remaining. Washington, through the air and on the ground, accounted for 64 of the drive's 72 yards.

Marcus Davis Injury: Virginia Tech WR Leaves Game With Apparent Shoulder Injury

Virginia Tech wide receiver Marcus Davis was slow to get up and had to be helped to his feet by trainers following a 35-yard reception from quarterback Logan Thomas. He left the game with an apparent shoulder injury.

Davis fumbled on the play, but the ball was recovered by a Virginia Tech teammate. Davis laid on his back momentarily. When he was helped to his feet by trainers, he stood for a second, composed himself, then ran off the field.

Davis had six catches for 82 yards before exiting with the injury.

Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech Score Update: Score Still 7-7 At End Of 3rd Quarter

The battle of anemic offenses continued Monday night with a scoreless third quarter and the game still tied, 7-7.

Georgia Tech received the kickoff to start the second half then drove to midfield. However, the drive stalled when Yellow Jacket running back B.J. Bostic could not convert a 4th and 1, turning the ball over on downs.

After three consecutive 3-and-outs, two by Virginia Tech and one by Georgia Tech, the Yellow Jackets finally got their triple-option offense on track, moving the ball into Hokie territory behind the rushing attack of quarterback Tevin Washington and running backs David Sims, Orwin Smith and B.J. Bostic, and were settling for a 37-yard field goal attempt when the quarter ended.

Georgia Tech has now rushed for 140 yards against the Virginia Tech defense, and has been limited to only 52 yards passing. Virginia Tech has added only 130 total yards of their own, with 90 passing and 40 rushing.

Following the Godhigh touchdown was 14 scoreless minutes that involved three punts from each team and zero true scoring threats, leading the Hokies and Yellow Jackets to enter halftime tied.

In this defensive battle, Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has stood out as a playmaker, passing for 90 yards and a touchdown and adding 40 rushing yards on eight carries. Wide receiver Marcus Davis has four receptions for 48 yards. Tight end Eric Martin has the only score for the Hokies, a 5-yard touchdown reception.

D.J. Coles Injury: Virginia Tech WR Out For Game

Virginia Tech wide receiver D.J. Coles has left Monday's game with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and will not return.

Coles, a senior, had 36 catches for 480 yards and three touchdowns in 2011, but underwent offseason PCL surgery. His injury is not related to that surgery, according to the official team Twitter account. He has caught passes in 15 games for Virginia Tech throughout his collegiate career.

Coles did not have a reception before leaving Monday night's contest. Quarterback Logan Thomas has instead turned his focus to wide receivers Marcus Davis and Corey Fuller. Davis leads the team thus far with four receptions for 48 yards and one touchdown. Fuller has two receptions for 25 yards.

Coles exited in the second quarter with his team tied 7-7 and with his offense stalling on three consecutive drives.

Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech Blog Preview: Gobbler Country Predicts 10-Point Hokie Win

The Virginia Tech Hokies will look to protect their national ranking on Monday night as they open their season against Georgia Tech. The triple-option Yellow Jackets like to run the football early and often against their opponents, often employing two or three tailbacks in the backfield. It will be an interesting early-season challenge for the Hokies, and one that should say a lot about where the team is right now.

SB Nation's Hokies blog, Gobbler Country, previewed the game earlier today. Here are a few highlights, including their final score prediction.

How the team stacks up offensively against Georgia Tech:

The Yellow Jackets only return one starter on the defensive line (though they do run a 3-4), so the Hokies need to take advantage of that by protecting Logan Thomas with a retooled line of their own. Keeping the pressure off Thomas will help to alleviate some of his responsibilities. This whole thing is on his back right now. Also, opening holes for Tech's young and inexperienced running backs will help acclimate them to the game and by virtue, also take pressure off Thomas. If both those things happen, Thomas will shine.

On the defensive side of the ball:

We always hear about this, but it's 100 percent true. We have to play ASSIGNMENT FOOTBALL! That means we have to stick to our assignments no matter what. Defending the option is counter-intuitive. As a defender, you can't just run at a guy and try to tackle him. No matter how much your defensive instincts tell you to go after the guy with the ball, you can't commit unless he's your assignment, without risking the chance of creating a bigger play.

And finally a prediction for the game:

Virginia Tech 31, Georgia Tech 21

Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN.
