    This will be an interesting final poll if Notre Dame loses, and Wisconsin and Texas wins.

    Two user vs cpu games two user victories. Wisconsin winning the B1G and Texas the SEC....two teams PRAYING for a GT upset tonight because I think they would both go to the big game. Added pressure for Coach cyhiphopp can he lean on his QB sensation to lead him to the promise land??? Both teams hoping ND loses but it may be Texas' 40 point THRASHING of LSU that puts them in over Wisconsin if ND wins..... drama drama

    Putting the 'D' in Defense!
    [​IMG]
    If there was any question what kind of game the ACC Championship would be, it was answered on the first series of the game. Georgia Tech received the opening kickoff and kicked their fast paced offense into gear. After a few quick gains their athletic QB scrambled in an attempt to gain some big yards. Coach HipHopp expected this and had his Butkus award finalist Andrew Brown spying the QB. He was the lone defender between the QB and a likely huge gain. BOOM! FUMBLE! Brown came into the game leading the team in fumbles forced and the GT quarterback, while athletically gifted, is not known for his sure handedness. An Irish defensive end promptly picked up the fumble and rumbled in for the first score of the game. 7-0 Notre Dame.
    The defensive effort did not end there. Georgia Tech promptly threw a pick on their next possession. Their defense was stout however and forced a punt. But the Notre Dame defense struck again. Andrew Brown forced ANOTHER fumble recovered by ND. Notre Dame would end up throwing it right back to GT though. The GT defense threw everything they had at JR Gant. This was the only game of the season where was kept he under wraps all day and held to under 100 yards rushing. The Irish defense would bail him out however.
    The first quarter was filled with action, but all defensive. The last play of the quarter, fittingly, was a BIG sack by a Notre Dame defensive tackle throwing his opposing guard out of the way and plowing over the GT quarterback. The score after the opening quarter, 7-0 with just the defensive touchdown. There would be more fireworks to come.
    Notre Dame would get on the board offensively in the second quarter with a TD pass early but most of the 2nd quarter was engulfed in the defensive battle that raged on. Georgia Tech was also able to sustain a long drive and score a TD on a sharp pass to the TE. 14-7 Irish. ND would get the ball back just before halftime and attempt to get another score before heading for the locker room. The Tech defense promptly broke through and sacked Gant for a big loss bringing up a third and really long with the clock winding down. Gant threw up a prayer and connected on a LOOONG bomb to his WR who just squeeked past the GT defensive backs. A dagger right in the back of a Tech defense that had done everything so well for the first half. ND carried each other to the locker room with a 21-7 lead at half.
    The slobberknocker continued in the second half. Notre Dame's punter, who has languished on the sidelines most of the season was called into action over and over as the GT defense thwarted NDs offense over and over. The punter delievered, punting more times than he had all season and unleashing big kicks to flip field position and force the Tech offense to traverse the length of the field on almost ever drive. The Notre Dame defense did not disappoint. GTs offense would show life at times, breaking off a good run or breaking free in the secondary for a solid pass, but the Irish defenders quickly recovered and prevented them from scoring on any of the long plays. Tech was forced to sustain drives and hold on to the ball in order to score, something that proved difficult.
    Georgia Techs defense did their part as well. Notre Dame would only score 3 more points in the contest on a mid range field goal that put them up 24-7. Tech mounted a late drive and came up with a TD with 4 minutes left in the game. They chose to kick deep instead of trying for the onside kick. The Irish offense, battered all game, iced it. They picked up a BIG rushing first down and continued to run the ball and drain the clock. GT used a few time outs but would have just over 1 minute remaining when ND punted the ball back to them. Techs last offensive play was an intercepted pass. ND then trotted out in the Victory formation and took a knee.
    Huge props to Rekkapryde. He was obviously not happy with the results of our recent conference matchup and threw everything at me in the rematch.
    Notre Dame has compiled a lot of stats this season. Passing Yds, Rushing Yds, Receiving Yds, TDs, Tackles, Sacks... But one stat that not many have noticed is turnover margin. Notre Dame came into the ACC Championship leading the country in TO margin at +14. GT would force two INTs, but the Irish defense came away with 7 turn overs. 5 picks between two QBs and 2 fumbles. That decided the game right there.
    Coach HipHopp brought his first conference championship to the ND trophy room. Now they look forward to a matchup with TEXAS in the National Championship!
