Georgia Tech widening the gap

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

ATLANTA, Ga. -- The band has now begun to play Livin' on a Prayer. Looks like they're livin' on Paul Johnson's play-calling to me.

Virginia Tech's defense looks like it's losing focus, and Georgia Tech continues to make use of its numerous backs, the latest being Marcus Wright, who took off to the left for a 13-yard touchdown run and a 21-10 lead.

Anyone who doubts the credibility of Johnson's offense needs to check his own credibility, because Bud Foster is one of the best defensive coordinators in the country, and no matter how much he preaches assignment football to his players, it's up to them to execute. Virginia Tech's defense is struggling to do that here in the second half, and it only takes one missed assignment for this offense to explode.

The Hokies have finally met their match.
