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.
