Tennessee beats Georgia Tech in double overtime, 42-41: 3 takeaways

Tennessee coach Butch Jones' past two trips to the state of Georgia have resulted in two of the more improbable wins in Volunteer history - last season's "Dobbs-nail Boot" Hail Mary over Georgia, and Monday night's 42-41 double-overtime thriller against Georgia Tech.

This time, they marched 75 yards on 16 plays and bled an even seven minutes off the clock, with Marshall running for 38 yards and Benson chewing up 26 more. It felt like the right call at the time and still does now - in all, Georgia Tech converted 13-of-18 third downs, achieved 33 first downs to Tennessee's 18 and possessed the ball for 41:27 - but Tennessee came up with its only stop of the night, the only one it needed.

Tennessee's Micah Abernathy fell on it for the Vols at the 7 with 4:50 remaining, and the Vols drove almost the length of the field to tie on John Kelly's 11-yard run with 1:29 remaining. He added five completions for 120 yards through the air. But Tennessee has the talent and the offensive firepower to be successful this season without him.

Offensively, running back LeMonte Booker was the obvious star as he accounted for 52.5 percent of ISU's 293 yards of total offense. Georgia Tech leads 7-0. The true freshman's first punt went 56 yards, and he averaged 46 yards on three kicks. He rushed a school-record 44 times for a school-record 249 yards by a quarterback and scored a school-record five rushing touchdowns - which is saying something for a school that once scored 222 points in a game.

DEFENSIVE LINE - Josh Sweat, Florida State, DE, 6-5, 250, Jr., Chesapeake, Va. Marshall was met at the line and driven sideways. Georgia Tech leads Tennessee 21-7. (Or at least that is how it started out.) It was never cracked up to anything, so it did not under deliver but it also did not provide anything interesting (through two and a half quarters). Certainly, he was disturbed by his defense - and had arrived at the point of trying to take it completely out of the equation - rightfully I'd say - by going for two in the second overtime.

That was when the complexion of the game changed and it seemed the Big Orange got a bolt of extra energy, and the ensuing drive resulted in a score.

Earlier, people stood in line at a Kroger grocery store that was giving away gallon jugs of water, which were gone in two hours. Its remnants were expected to generate another 1 to 3 inches over parts of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia.

Tennessee evened the score with 8:11 left in the half on a 1-yard dive by Kelly.

SPECIALIST - Colton Lichtenberg, Boston College, PK, 5-10, 190, Jr., Savannah, Ga. Poor defense allowed the YellowJackets to fly down the field to set up a potential game winning Field Goal.That was blocked.

Dormady, who was making his first start as a Vol, went 20-for-37 for 221 passing yards a pair of touchdowns. Lichtenberg also connected from from 35 yards out in the second quarter. He came to Georgia Tech in 2008 and he's only managed to crack the double-digit mark in victories twice (2009 and 2014). The computer projects a 36.6-31.2 Tennessee victory. "Hydrate good, eat right, go to treatment I think I'll be fine by Saturday", Marshall said, proving himself a willing worker and an amateur athletic trainer. Jackson's rushing total was the most for a Virginia Tech quarterback in his first career appearance since 1987.
