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.
