The final score indicates just how close this Coastal Division race is going to be, and just how close these two teams are. In the end, North Carolina couldn't do anything with its final possession, and the Yellow Jackets hung on for the win. It was poor execution down the stretch for UNC, as quarterback Bryn Renner should have thrown the ball away, but took a sack instead. Renner was sacked twice in the final 90 seconds of the game, and Georgia Tech now takes the lead in this Coastal Division race.
It was an important win for Georgia Tech, which has a very real chance of winning the division. No, they're not going to put up 60 points a game in conference play, but they will continue to move the ball and catch defenses sleeping with their big-play capabilities. After three wins against unheralded opponents, Georgia Tech is now 4-0 and yes, this team is for real.
