Redemption for Tech's Thomas
By Heather Dinich
TAMPA, Fla. -- Georgia Tech receiver Demaryius Thomas has redeemed himself from last weekend's costly drop against Georgia. Consider that play officially behind him, and it was good to see because we all knew Thomas was better than that drop, and he just reminded everyone.
Thomas caught a 70-yard touchdown pass from Josh Nesbitt to give the Jackets a 30-20 lead. It was Thomas' first catch of the night. Not every Georgia Tech drive has to take five minutes. This one only lasted 1:23, and that's the trick to defending it. That was Thomas' fourth reception of 70 yards or more this year. He now has 1,147 receiving yards this year, the second-highest single-season total in Georgia Tech history.
