In-game Replay: TaQuon Marshall scores on 49-yard run

Georgia Tech needed a spark after a tough first half against Wake Forest on Saturday night at Bobby Dodd Stadium, and quarterback TaQuon Marshall provided it with a highlight-reel run in the third quarter.

After the Demon Deacons were pushed back and had to punt to start the half, the Yellow Jackets started their first drive near midfield. Marshall took the first play on a designed run to the right sideline and sprinted past the Wake Forest defense for a 49-yard touchdown. After a failed two-point conversion, Tech trailed 21-19.

Marshall had just 17 yards on 13 carries before the run.
