#3 Wisconsin 17
#4 Georgia Tech 13
The 2018 BCS National Champion Wisconsin Badgers opened the 2019 campaign on the road as they traveled to Atlanta Georgia Bobby Dodd Stadium to take on the #4 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. This was the ESPN Saturday Night National game of the week and it lived up to it's billing.
Georgia Tech won the toss and elected to play defense. The Champs went to work. They did a good job of mixing in the run and the pass and had a first and goal The Yellow Jackets defense was ready and up for the challenge. After 3 unsuccessful running plays, The Badgers coaching staff had their first tough decision of this young season. Well Coach GMONEY left his offense on the field and the defense for GT stuffed Anthony Oliver and they took possession of the ball inside their own 2 yard line. The crowd was going crazy. At the end of the 1st QTR, it was a scoreless game. GT went down field on a nice drive and Keith McCollum connected on a 21 yard FG and GT goes up 3-0. That lead was very short lived as 2 plays later, Tyler Dickson found Brian Holt and he did the rest. Holt breaks a tackle and out runs the GT secondary and scored on a 82 yard scamper to give the Badgers a 7-3 lead. Wisconsin D stepped up again and forced a punt and the offense was on the move again. They got into the GT red zone and once again the Yellow Jackets defense was up to the challenge with that tough man to man in your face defense. Eric Harper kicked a 24 yard FG at the half ended and Wisconsin leads 10-3 at the half.
In the 3rd QTR, both defenses began to flex their muscles. After exchanging punts the Yellow Jackets were once again on the move. The Badger defense stepped up and GT had to setle for a FG to make it a 10-6 ball game. After another Badger punt, GT was on the move again. The Badger defense was up to the challenge. SR QB Michael Dougherty threw a pic to CB John Wilson. The Badgers had first and 10 inside the GT 30. Then Dickson made his only mistake of the game. He threw a lazy pass right into the waiting arms of LB Chris Patrick and GT had the ball once again. During the TV timeout, Coach GMONEY was seen yelling profusely at his SR QB. The 3rd period was over and GT had the ball in Badger territory.
Less than a minute into the 4th QTR, Dougherty found HB Jonathan Reese on a 6 yard quick slant and GT had the lead 13-10. The crowd was in a frenzy and Bobby Dodd stadium was rocking. Tyler Dickson needed to lead his offense and he did just that. Wisconsin drove down field on the running game and the short passing game. They committed numerous 3rd downs and even had a 4th down conversion. Tyler Dickson found SO TE Tony Ratliff on a dart from 27 yards out with 36 seconds left and the Badgers went back on top 17-13. However Dougherty wasn't finished. GT marched right down the field as they really made the Badger D look like a dam JV squad and all of a sudden with 8 seconds left they were on the Badger 8 yard line. After a read option run by Jackson to the 4 yard line and another Jackson run to the 1, GT faced a 3rd and goal with 3 seconds left. They tried a QB sneak but the Badgers were ready and stuffed it. Somehow GT was able to call their last time out with 1 second left. They came out in a 4 wide set. Wisconsin called a TO as they needed to gather their thoughts on what defense to play. GT once again came out in a 4 wide set. The snap does to Dougherty and the pressure was mounting. He then tried to flair a pass out to Jackson. However, JR MLB Luke Lynch hit Jackson and jarred the ball loose and that was the ball game as the Badgers holds on for a hard fought 17-13 victory over the Yellow Jackets and their hostile crowd. gg Todd Ramsey It was indeed a intense battle bro. It actually made #4 on my ESPN greatest games.

That last play the HB was supposed to auto-motion to the flat. I must have accidentally snapped the ball early which screwed up the play.
Two trips to the 1 yard line that yielded no points (happened once to you too).
Oh well those are the breaks.
