It's funny looking at this and seeing the Projected Scoring Margin at the bottom basically saying "This game turned out as it should have," when nothing about this game made a particular amount of sense. Georgia Tech's offense played as well as advertised but suffered two crippling fumbles while either about to score or run the clock out. Georgia's offense ALSO suffered two near-the-end zone fumbles but still scored what had to be the game-winning touchdown with 18 seconds left. And then it wasn't the game-winning touchdown.
This was set up to be a gut-wrenching loss for whoever lost it. It is also going to end up on my Top 100 Games of the Season list.
