After a rough start for Georgia Tech on Saturday night at Clemson’s Memorial Stadium, a timely forced turnover set the Yellow Jackets up for a score.
Trailing 7-0 after a turnover of their own, Antonio Simmons forced a fumble, and Step Durham recovered it to give the Jackets the ball back.
KirVonte Benson then took a B-back dive 65 yards to inside the Clemson 10-yard line. Tech would settle for a field goal to make the score 7-3 late in the first quarter.
