Georgia Tech vs. Tennessee: first quarter recap

It took the Georgia Tech offense a couple of drives to find its footing, but behind new starting quarterback TaQuon Marshall, the Yellow Jackets began moving the football and ended the first quarter with a 7-0 lead over the Tennessee Volunteers. 

Georgia Tech gained just 10 yards in its first two drives, but went 86 yards in 12 plays and 6:51 to take the lead. Marshall punched it in from 1-yard out for the score. The big play of the drive came when Marshall hit wide receiver Ricky Jeune on a third-and-12 for 44 yards down to the Tennessee 21.
