A tough loss for Tech, but an upbeat outlook all the same

Alabama vs. Miami announced as 2021 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game

The OddsShark computer likes Tennessee to get the win.

The report notes Jennings was injured during the second quarter against Georgia Tech.

"I felt like we had a better chance of getting a two-point conversion than we did stopping them", Johnson said.

"Offensively, we did not play to our standard or expectation", Jones said. I know the Vols were trying to get their passing game going, but sometimes you have to ride the hot hand.

Joshua Dobbs, Alvin Kamara and Derek Barnett are all in the National Football League, but this new version of Tennessee -"Team 121" as Butch Jones likes to refer to them - shares their heart. After Tech's Shawn Davis missed badly on a 47-yard field goal attempt, the Vols drove 70 yards for a TD to make it 21-14.

KirVante Benson put the Jackets up 14-7 with yet another one yard touchdown run with just over a minute left to play in the half, and Tech held Tennessee to close the quarter.

"That should have been a walk-in but we screwed it up", Johnson said.

A night of firsts: The first completion by Marshall went to Ricky Jeune for 44 yards.

After Marshall scored in the second overtime, Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson immediately called timeout and elected to go for two points and the victory.

He hauled in big passes, including two touchdowns, and finished the night with four catches for 115 yards. It was capped off by a TaQuon Marshall 1-yard touchdown run. The under is also 4-1-1 in Georgia Tech's last six games in September.

Georgia Tech ran 96 plays, rushed for 535 yards and finished with 655 yards overall, compared to 59 plays and 369 yards for the Vols. The Yellow Jackets most likely will go with junior Matthew Jordan, who played at times while former starter Justin Thomas was injured last season, but could go with junior TaQuon Marshall or a pair of redshirt freshmen.

Quarterback Quinten Dormady's first start for Tennessee will be remembered for the finish. Then, with Georgia Tech killing time for a victory that never came by moving from their 11-yard line into Tennessee territory, J.J. Green fumbled, the Vols recovered, and they raced 93-yards the other way to tie things at 28-28 on Kelly's 11-yard touchdown run. There's also the fact that Tennessee only possessed the ball for 18 total minutes (compared to Georgia Tech's 41 minutes). Dormady capped the possession with a 50-yard pass to Callaway, trimming the Yellow Jackets' lead, 28-21.

Tennessee (1-0) was led by running back John Kelly, who ran 19 times for 128 yards and four touchdowns. When the ball was snapped, Davis got off a low-trajectory kick and it was blocked by Paul Bain, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior from Powder Springs, Georgia.

"When he was describing what he was putting into it, and how he was trying to invest in this city, we thought that was really important". "It's another good opportunity to play an SEC team".

Key play: Cottrell took an option pitch and went 12 yards to the 13 on the first play of overtime.

"It's still going to be in the back of my mind knowing that we should've won, but we've got to move on from this, flush it and get ready for next week", Marshall said.
