Georgia Tech settles for another FG
By Heather Dinich
TAMPA, Fla. -- On its last possession, Georgia Tech looked like it was an eighth grader pushing a fifth-grader in the hallway. Just a few nudges in the chest, making the poor kid backtrack.
And then Georgia Tech started to beat itself up.
Just when the Jackets were ready to bulldoze their way into the end zone again -- they got as close as the 7-yard line -- they racked up four penalties, two holding calls and two false starts. Somehow, though, Scott Blair bailed them out again, with another career-long field, goal, this time 49 yards. The Jackets lead 13-7, and Clemson fans should feel fortunate about that, because it could be a whole lot worse.
