Trailing 7-3 late in the first half against Jacksonville State on Saturday, cornerback Lawrence Austin came up a big turnover.
He under-cut an out-route and picked off Gamecocks quarterback Bryant Horn at the Tech 47-yard line and returned the football down to the Gamecocks 32.
Two plays later, quarterback TaQuon Marshall found Ricky Jeune in the end zone for a touchdown and the Yellow Jackets regained the lead at 10-7 with 1:20 left in the half.
