Georgia Tech came out on fire for the second straight week. After trading a couple of quick possessions, Tech rattled off an 82-yard TD run, followed by an 85-yard punt return for a TD, followed by an interception that set up a 3rd TD on a fake field goal (which was illegal)and a 21-0 lead with 3 minutes left in the 1st quarter.

Things then slowed way down for Georgia Tech who struggled on 3rd down all game long (just 3 of 14). This allowed Clemson to rattle off 27 straight points behind a couple of big pass plays and some steady drives resulting in field goals.

With the game on the line though, and trailing by 3, Tech mustered 2 more field goal drives in the 4th quarter. The game winning field goal came with just 1 minute left and the defense held Clemson to 4 straight incomplete passes to end the game and left one Clemson fan disgusted.
