It wasn't a freshman mistake, but Jacob Eason threw an errant pass that was picked off as Georgia was killing the clock. A broken-down QB throwback for Georgia Tech led to Qua Searcy leaping 12 feet and over an UGA defender for the game-winning score in Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate. This upset should make a strong first impression on GT's new athletic director for Paul Johnson.

I saw Georgia Tech against North Carolina on Nov. 5 and the Jackets looked dreadful, especially on defense. Incredible turnaround by Paul Johnson and staff to finish with wins over Virginia Tech, Virginia and now Georgia. Lesson: Never doubt Paul Johnson. Georgia Tech goes 8-4.

It's only 14-14, but both Georgia and Georgia Tech's offense are efficiently moving the football on the ground. Both teams are averaging seven yards per carry and combined for 290 rushing yards in the first half. If either team can get a double-digit lead it could be tough to overcome.
