With the Yellow Jackets having just scored a touchdown to go up 14-3 against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday afternoon, Georgia Tech allowed a huge return on the ensuing kickoff at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
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.
