Like defense? Then skip watching this game. This game featured only 1 punt, over 1,000 yards of total offense, and 13 touchdowns. There were 4 scoring drives of 2 or fewer plays and 14 plays of 20 yards or longer. Really the only thing stopping the offenses from scoring every drive was the 5 turnovers.

Georgia Tech's run game was rolling all day. They only passed it 8 times. Tech ran for over 400 yards, which is like 3 games for the Hawkeyes. Nesbitt was really the start of this game. He ran the ball 27 times for 140 yards and 3 touchdowns. Anthony Allen also had a big game, though only touching the ball 4 times, he game 81 yards.

Defensively, Tech was exposed as they would be through the year. FSU's QB (Ponder) threw for 359 yards and 5 touchdowns in his best performance of the year. Ponder hit receivers on mid-range routes all day long. Tech also gave up 6 yards per carry and 180 rushing yards.
