STREAK'S OVER! JACKETS WIN!

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

So.

That was pretty cool.

What a game.

Georgia Tech showed up and played their game to perfection. They finished the game with over 40 minutes of possession, 72 plays on offense (only 7 passes). Justin Thomas played a magnificent game, completing passes when it counted and making great decisions in the option game. All that, not to mention that Coach Paul Johnson called a magnificent game himself.

They limited Miami's potent offense to 7 possessions. (And no, you didn't misread that. Although it doesn't count the 1-play, 1 yard drive where they ended the first half.) They forced a couple of mistakes by the freshman QB Brad Kayaa. They contained the dangerous Duke Johnson, who came up with 100 yards rushing and 52 yards receiving, though most of that was before halftime.

The defense had a few difficulties, especially early, but only gave up 17 points on those 7 possessions. They still forced 2 turnovers and nearly forced two more that were overturned after review. Jamal Golden effectively ended the game with his interception of Brad Kayaa in the end zone.

This is the greatest, most exciting win this program has seen in just over two weeks. (Actually, it's probably even better than the win in Blacksburg. This is the best win we've had since the win over #5 Clemson at Homecoming in 2011.)

28-17.

The night is ours, Georgia Tech fans. Let's celebrate.
