Just how the Yellow Jackets drew it up.
Early in the second quarter of Georgia Tech’s game against Miami on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium, quarterback TaQuon Marshall evaded a couple of tacklers in the backfield and stayed on his feet long enough to hit a wide-open J.J. Green in the end zone for a touchdown.

The Yellow Jackets decided to throw the football on a third-and-3 from the Miami 3-yard line. Marshall sidestepped a defender in the backfield while another Hurricane defender held his leg. Marshall stayed on his feet and flipped the ball to Green who snuck out of the backfield and into the end zone to put Georgia Tech ahead 14-3.
Georgia Tech running backs gashed runs of 24 yards, 15 yards, 14 yards and 12 yards on the 8-play, 70-yard drive.
