The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets may have lost a heartbreaker to the No. 25 Tennessee Volunteers, but it was a loss quarterback TaQuon Marshall is not likely to forget.
The junior put on a record-breaking show Monday night in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game -- a 42-41 double overtime loss. Marshall rushed for 249 yards and five touchdowns on 44 carries. His yardage is the most ever by a Georgia Tech quarterback, while his touchdowns and attempts are the most ever by a Yellow Jacket player.
