    GT keeps undefeated season alive

    GT was hearing the hype of the Auburn offense and how it's innovative to the Tradition 1 league. Well after the game was over, they quickly shutdown the most stylistic offense since the GT fleXbox One of years back.

    For the 1st half though, the Auburn Tigers offense was effective and kept coach Moreecemos and his GT squad on their heels. Rollison was quite effective, throwing for 3TD passes in the 1st half, including two long pass plays of 56 and 51 yards (to Whitaker and Blake respectively). Auburn took advantage of an aggressive blitzing GT defense to have a 21 all game with a minute to go in the 1st half. GT though would seemingly deflate the Tigers with a quick score ending with a Orwin Smith 3 yard run before half.

    A 21-7 3rd quarter seemingly put the game out of reach and it all started with the defense. They forced Rollison into 6 turnovers overall, which most coming in the 2nd half. They began to sack him, batter and rattle him all over the field in the 3rd quarter. The defensive line did an excellent job in forcing Rollinson into mistakes downfield. It forced Auburn to pass exclusively and get them out of their offensive rhythm that gave them a 10 game win streak leading up to this game. The 6 total INT's were 2nd most by the Tigers this year. Only in their 1st game where backup QB, Freshma William Hamilton, had 8INT's in his 1st game of the season.

    Heisman candidate RB Orwin Smith, who was seemingly absent from the GT gameplan last week had a more prevalent role in this game, scoring 2TD runs with 53 yards on the ground and 78 yards passing. 5'8" WR Thearon Collier may of had the play of the game, catching a lobbed pass which was affected by the Auburn pass rush. Collier would stop his route, sky for the ball, shake off the Auburn defender and return it 40 yards for a score. JR-QB Jordan Luallen had 331 yards on 23/31 passing with 3TD passes on the game.

    On defense, JR-CB Jemea Thomas had an outstanding game, picking Rollison off 3 times. FR-CB Roy Merrick had 2 picks himself, including a 91 yard return for a score for his other interception. George Dunn would add to his school record total of INT's, giving him 10 on the season.

    GEORGIA TECH- 59, AUBURN- 28

    The nemisis strikes again. Auburn wasn't used to playing without the lead it looks like.

    Georgia Tech looks to be BCS title bound. Clemson would love to play the spoiler role!!!
