Brenton King kicked the football down to the Virginia Tech 1-yard line, where it was fielded by kick return Travon McMillian. The Hokie returner found some daylight an followed a convoy of blockers down to the Georgia Tech 24-yard line for a return of 64 yards.

Virginia Tech scored a touchdown to bring the score to 14-9.
