Tennessee Rallies To Beat Georgia Tech 42-41 In Double Overtime

A Tennessee loss, and you can start looking for possible landing spots for Butch Jones. "We're continuing to evolve".

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

But the Vols answered just as quickly, and perhaps the most important play of the night to that point was a 50-yard TD pass from Quinten Dormady to Marquez Callaway that cut it to 28-21 with 11:49 left.

"We just started executing", Dormady said. "He played with passion, he played with energy".

Think about that. Tennessee's defense had barely made a play all night, and at win-or-lose time it made two. That's pretty impressive considering Georgia Tech came into its opener without the top four rushers from a season ago lost to graduation (Justin Thomas), dismissal (Dedrick Mills), transfer (Marcus Marshall) and injury (Clinton Lynch).

KirVonte Benson was the starting B-back Monday night and complemented Marshall by rushing 26 times for 124 yards and a score. He completed 5-of-9 passes for 120 yards.

With the Yellow Jackets holding a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession, and the Volunteers seemingly having no solution for Tech's flexbone offense, it appeared the Vols were headed toward a deflating loss to start the season.

Volquest reports that junior wideout Jauan Jennings dislocated his wrist in the second quarter of Tennessee's 42-41 win over Georgia Tech.

The teams traded touchdowns during the first overtime and again in the second, but Georgia Tech elected to go for two and the win at the end of the second overtime period. I mean, they didn't have enough guys over there, and we 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. If they can control the LOS and get to that number, Tennessee will be in trouble. Though they nearly got in, that's just a tough way to lose a game. The effort was aided by (among others), Nathan Cottrell (six carries for 79 yards), as well as a 36-yard run from J.J. Green.

VOLS ON THE BALL: Tennessee's new quarterback will have a couple of impressive weapons at his disposal.

Kelly ended the gut-check 93-yard, seven-play drive by scoring on an 11-yard scamper and Medley's kick tied the game at 28-all with 1:29 remaining. Georgia Tech needed only a field goal to make it a two-score game. This was Johnson's third swing in the span of three games at a team from the SEC East - he'd won the first two, beating Georgia in Athens last November and then Kentucky in the TaxSlayer Bowl - and he should be 3-for-3. Soon afterward, Dormady countered by capping Tennessee's 70-yard march to the end zone with a 10-yard pass to Callaway.

HALFTIME: Georgia Tech 14, Tennessee 7.

With that type of firepower on offense, there's no reason to think the Georgia Tech couldn't return to the ACC championship game if it were to clean up its mistakes. The Yellow Jackets began to run between the tackles to pick up consistent yardage.
