Through the first possession of the third quarter, Georgia Tech led 21-7, ran 54 plays to Tennessee's 28 and had outgained the Vols 306 yards to 94. In the first seven possessions, the seventh of which was the Volunteers' first of the second half, Tennessee was 2-for-8 on third downs and had scored once, a touchdown on a short field. For as thrilling as this game ultimately became, Johnson's decision to go for two in second overtime will be debated by the Yellow Jackets' fan base for some time.

"This game wore on us a lot, but Coach talks about how strong individuals can find something to keep them going", Bituli said.

But Marshall's six-yard scamper put Tech up by two touchdowns again, 28-14, with 13 minutes left.

Georgia Tech spent most of the evening with its offense on the field, trampling a Tennessee defense that spent six months preparing for an offense it had no chance of stopping.

Marshall again summoned the will to drive the Jackets all the way to the Tennessee 19 to set up a game-winning 36-yard field goal attempt that Shawn Davis botched again.

"I don't think I've ever been in a game where we had 655 yards and ran 96 plays and lost". After Tennessee rallied from behind to tie the game and force overtime, it came down to one final play. The Jackets led 14-7 at halftime, accepted the ball to open the second half and promptly took complete control of the game with an 11-play, 80-yard drive that consumed almost six minutes - almost 20 percent of the available game time to that point.

"We didn't really change anything in the game plan in the second half", said Callaway. Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. "He told us the plays were there and we just had to execute them". We spoke all week about a will to win. We knew that this was going to be a game that you had to show some resolve and some grit, and you had to play complementary football.

Kelly added two more TD runs in overtime. Matthew Jordan, TaQuon Marshall, Lucas Johnson and Jay Jones are all fighting to start tonight.

I mean, they didn't have enough guys over there, and [the blocking WR, top of the screen] tried to reach out and grab somebody as opposed to releasing inside and clinging the corner, because there's one guy you could have pitched to or run it in yourself, and we didn't do it. Considering the amount of time they held the ball, and their domination early on, the Yellow Jackets should be sitting at 1-0. All you need to know is that the next time somebody on the Vols defense stops somebody carrying the ball for Georgia Tech will be the first.

Callaway seemed to float in the air on some of his receptions, including a 40-yard catch on the game-tying touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter. "If they wore down in this game, they'd better get their butts home".

The Jackets outgained the Volunteers by almost 300 total yards and ran 37 more offensive plays.

An anemic first half offensive performance from Tennessee totaled just 92 yards, but the first start in Quinten Dormandy's career would turn around completely.

The injury appeared to occur when Georgia Tech defensive back A.J. Gray struck Jennings' hands with his helmet as Jennings made a catch on a crossing route during the Vols' only scoring drive of the first half.

Tennessee's home opener is slated for September 9 against Indiana State with kickoff set for 4 p.m. ET. Soon afterward, Dormady countered by capping Tennessee's 70-yard march to the end zone with a 10-yard pass to Callaway. Tennessee won 42-41 in two overtimes.
