2012 Top 10 Plays: (9) Tevin Washington's 43-Yard Run at Clemson

"NOPE." - Tevin Washington - Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

The #9 play in our countdown was a perfect example of what Tevin Washington was able to do for our team.

Countdown to Kickoff: 46 Days...

The Situation: Clemson leads 27-21, Clemson 46-yard-line, 3rd and 3, 11:30 left in the 3rd quarter. This is the first drive for either team after halftime.

The Play: I'd consider this play the epitome of Tevin Washington. On third down he keeps the ball, and when he sees the defense over-pursuing the play, he cuts straight through a hole that Zach Laskey probably should have carried the ball through. Instead, he gets a block from Laskey and a couple of others, and converts what would have otherwise been a broken play and missed read into a 43-yard gallop down to the Clemson 3-yard line. It's no secret that Tevin Washington wasn't perfect -- but he was never afraid to take it himself and occasionally could majorly break one of those for a long gain.

The Aftermath: One play later, Washington kept it again up the middle for a 3-yard touchdown that tied the game at 27, with the extra point giving Georgia Tech the lead. Clemson went on to take the victory, but this play was a huge factor in giving Georgia Tech the lead after 3 quarters and keeping them in the game to the very end.

Where does this play rank on the entire season's radar for you?
