The Yellow Jackets won in Charlottesville for the first time since 1990 (the last time Tech won a NC) thanks to this stellar run by all-world back Jonathan Dwyer. Tech as a team ran for over 360 yards and with the win combined with the Miami loss to Clemson they now sit in the driver's seat of the ACC Coastal division at 5-1. If they can win their last two ACC games against Wake Forest and Duke they will have a great opportunity of reaching their first ever BCS Bowl game.

Which brings us to this question: How in the hell did Georgia Tech manage to scoop up Paul Johnson? I mean think about it, a program like Nebraska had an opportunity to get this guy and instead picked Bo Pelini. Johnson has to be considered one of the top 5 coaches in the college game right now. The scary part is he doesn't even have his full compliment of players who fit his offensive style in The Flats yet. Nesbitt is a good quarterback but could you imagine the Tech triple option if they had somebody like Tony Rice, Tommy Frazier or Pat White running it? They would be unbeatable.
