In-game Replay: TaQuon Marshall throws pick-six to give Virginia Tech lead

For as good as Georgia Tech quarterback TaQuon Marshall had been throughout Saturday's game against Virginia Tech the junior made a costly mistake in the fourth quarter.

Backed up deep in their own territory, the Yellow Jackets decided to throw the football facing a second-and-long. Marshall attempted to throw the football away while rolling out to his right, however he was intercepted by Hokies’ defensive back Greg Stroman. 

He returned the ball 14 yards for a pick-six to put the Hokies ahead 22-21 with 7:27 left in the game.

It was Marshall’s third interception in the last two games.
