The Jackets were tasked with taking on the ninth-ranked Florida State Seminoles for the 2015 Edition of Homecoming on The Flats. This one was insane.
White out conditions Saturday night. Show up. We have a chance to get revenge and spoil a season. #TogetherWeSwarm— BuzzTalkRadio (@BuzzTalkRadio) October 21, 2015
The first quarter went back and forth. Each team would put 3 on the board with great kicks from Butker and Aguayo.
C'mon tech you got this! End the losing streak with a win against FSU #togetherweswarm— Dane (@DaneDanehenso) October 24, 2015
Good way of looking at it...
Hey, scored more points than Miami did today. #TogetherWeSwarm— GaTech Optimist (@GaTechOptimist) October 24, 2015
The second quarter looked like it could get out of hand.
But, Justin Thomas would keep us in the game with some huge plays late in the half.
We had some more unfortunate news as the second half got started.
A long drive ended with another Butker kick to get within 3.
The third quarter was dominated by our time of possession. FSU only ran 5 plays.
FSU was driving early in the fourth quarter with a chance to pull away.
They would have another shot to seal the deal later, but our defense remained as stingy as they had been all night.
Late in the game, Butker tied the game from 35 yards out. He would finish 3 for 3 on the night.
Butker nailed the 35-yd FG to tie the game at 17 w/ :54 ticks left. #FSUvsGT— GeorgiaTech Football (@GeorgiaTechFB) October 25, 2015
Our defense let FSU get into field goal position.
Florida State on to attempt a 56-yd FG w/ :06 left. #FSUvsGT— GeorgiaTech Football (@GeorgiaTechFB) October 25, 2015
Then, twitter exploded.
22 is definitely more than 16. #TogetherWeSwarm— Jim Stewart (@JBStewart) October 25, 2015
THE BEST HOMECOMING EVER!!!!! #TogetherWeSwarm— Reggie Ball (@TheReggieBall) October 25, 2015
Tonight's win over FSU helps ease the pain of Charlie Ward to Kez McCorvey in 1992. And the ACC Championship last year. #togetherweswarm— Charles litrico (@charleslitrico) October 25, 2015
We didn't lead until 0:00 but that's all that matters #TogetherWeSwarm— C^2 22-16 (@ClaytonCarte) October 25, 2015
But if I had a son sir, I'll tell you what he'd do: He would yell, "To Hell With Georgia!" like his daddy used to do. #GTvsFSU— David Carter (@DjBillingslee) October 25, 2015
