GAMEDAY LIVE: Georgia Tech vs Georgia


3:11 — Georgia Tech plants its flag at midfield as Tech players jump up and down on the Georgia G. Dawgs blow a 13 point lead in the 4th quarter.

FINAL SCORE: Georgia Tech 28, Georgia 27

3:04 — Touchdown Georgia Tech: Searcy with a 6 yd run. It was a halfback pass, but Searcy runs up the middle for the score. Tech leads 28-27 with 30 seconds left. 

3:00 — 13 tackles for Roquan Smith a career high

2:53 — Eason throws an interception on a deflected pass. Jackets ball at the UGA 46. 3:39 left. UGA leads 27-21.

2:47 — Sony Michel with 168 rushing yards now a career high.

2:43 — Touchdown Georgia Tech: Jackets go 94 yards and finish with a five yard TD run by Mills. UGA leads 27-21 with 6:28 left. 

2:41 –Tech now with 305 total yards. 157 rushing, 148 passing.

2:38 — Tech with 62 yards on two throws to dig out of a hole and get to the UGA 35. UGA still leads 27-14 with 8:14 left.

2:34 — Georgia can do nothing with the great field position. Dawgs go 3 and out for the first time. Tech ball at the 6.

2:27 — Tech goes for it on fourth down at midfield and David Marshall with a stop in the backfield. Dawgs ball at its 49.


2:18 — END OF THIRD QUARTER: Georgia 27, Georgia Tech 14. Instant analysis — You could argue that Georgia should be very disappointed by leaving a bunch of points on the field in the third quarter. The Dawgs scored 13 points, but had two short field goals.

However, Tech had only one third down in the third quarter and was out gained by Georgia 129-21. The talent level looked fairly even in the first quarter, but Georgia has slowly showed it’s dominance on defense as it figures out Tech’s option.

Sony Michel is just a few yards away from a career high. He’s at 161 rush yards while Nick Chubb is up to 83. If this is their final game in Sanford Stadium, it’s a pretty good one.

But, Tech can score two TDs in a hurry if the Dawgs make mistakes. But so far, Georgia is the better team.

2:18 — This is the second time this season Georgia has scored three times in one quarter. The other was the third quarter against Nicholls.

2:15 — FIELD GOAL GEORGIA: Blankenship hits a 32 yarder. Georgia leads 27-14 with 26 seconds left in third.

2:06 — Michel 157 rushing yards. Chubb 78. Tech’s Lynch leads with 42 yards (all on one carry).

2:04 — Georgia with 235 rushing yards (7.3 avg). Tech has 128 on the ground (6.4 avg).

2:02 — TOUCHDOWN GEORGIA: Nick Chubb with a three yard run. Georgia leads 24-14 with 7:30 left in the third quarter. 

1:58 — Tech’s first three drives: TD, Punt, TD, 165 yards. Next three drives – INT, FUMB, Punt. 34 yards.

1:57 — That is the first 3 and out for either team.

1:55 — Davis on a safety blitz sacks Thomas. Big loss on third down for Tech. Jackets go 3-and-out for the first time today. UGA ball at its 33

1:51 — Dawgs have to feel a bit disappointed with another red zone field goal off a turnover. But they have the lead.

1:49 –FIELD GOAL GEORGIA: Blankenship hits a 27 yarder. Georgia leads 17-14 with 12:01 left in third quarter. 

1:45 — Looks like Roquan Smith caused the fumble.

1:45 — Sanders recovers a fumble for Georgia at the GT 28.

1:43 p.m. — UGA with a good special teams play to start second half. GT ball at its 16.


END OF FIRST HALF: Georgia 14, Georgia Tech 14: Instant analysis — Yeah it’s going to be one of those Georgia-Georgia Tech games. UGA is out rushing Georgia Tech 175-115. The Dawgs have closed the gap in yards per rush, averaging exactly seven yards per carry to Tech’s 7.7. Both teams are trying to make adjustments, but the offenses are overwhelming at this point.

“They had some different blocking schemes that we didn’t show our kids,” said Kirby Smart. “We made some adjustments and hopefully it helps in the 2nd half.”

Georgia did improve some in the second quarter. It allowed 87 rushing yards in the first frame and 28 in the second quarter. So that’s a start. However, Justin Thomas big throw to Brad Stewart to open the second quarter was a killer to set up the second score.

There’s a pretty good chance Georgia will have two 100 yard rushers again. Sony Michel is already there with 117 yards on 12 carries. Chubb has 58 yards on 13 carries.

This one is sort of living up to the hype right now. Georgia is taking advantage of a weak Tech defensive line, while the Jackets are having success against a UGA defense that hasn’t faced it’s option offense much.

Now, who makes the quickest corrections in the second half.

1:15 — Third pick of the season and 12 of the year for Sanders. He’s now the team leader.

1:14 — Dominick Sanders with the interception for UGA. Dawgs ball at the UGA 9 with 56 second left.

1:04 — McKenzie talks trash and is hit with a flag. So was another UGA player, but refs got # wrong. And Tech’s Austin. So it all never happened.

1:03 — TOUCHDOWN GEORGIA: Eason with a six yard pass to McKenzie. It’s 14-14 with 5:04 left in the half. 

12:59 — It took until 5:51 left in the second quarter for the pushing and shoving to start.

12:58 — A Nick Chubb TD is taken off the board by a holding against Wynn. 2nd and goal back to the 12.

12:56 — Michel over 100 yards now. 9 carries for 102.

12:55 — 42 yard run by Michel on second play of the drive. His longest run of the season. Dawgs down to the 15.

12:52 — Tech has run 12 plays so far. Three of them have gone for 30 yards or more.

12:50 — Touchdown Georgia Tech: Marcus Marshall with a four yard TD run. Jackets lead 14-7 with 8:54 left in the half.

12:48 — Tech’s first pass of the game is a 64 yard play fake to Stewart. Tech down to the UGA 9.

12:45 — Georgia gets one first down on its first drive of the second quarter but is forced to punt. Tech ball at the GT 27.

12:41 — Big stop by Lorenzo Carter on JJ Green on third and one. Jackets punt. Dawgs get the ball after a touchback.


12:35 — END OF FIRST QUARTER: Georgia 7, Georgia Tech 7: Instant analysis — This could be a very fast moving game. Georgia Tech can’t stop the Dawgs running the ball and Georgia wasn’t exactly impressive stopping Tech’s first drive either.

The Dawgs are dominating the line of scrimmage, especially Brandon Kublanow who is pushing around Tech’s defensive front. However Georgia missed on points on its first drive in part because of a dropped pass by Riley Ridley and a missed FG by Rodrigo Blankenship.

The Jackets are getting yards in bunches, especially on the edges. Tech rushed for 87 yards on 7 carries for an average of 12.4. UGA color analyst Eric Zeier pointed out that UGA was guarding the pitch man with its safties, leaving no one behind if they get blocked. Which they were on that first drive.

The Dawgs must make adjustments or it could be a shootout.

12:32 –Rushing yards: Georgia 90 on 15 carries. Tech 75 on 4 carries.

12:30 — TOUCHDOWN GEORGIA: Sony Michel with a 10 yard TD run. It’s 7-7 with 1:28 left in first quarter. 

12:23 — Great throw by Eason on a scramble to Nauta on 3rd and 12 for 35 yards to the GT 30.

12:18 — Zeier: Georgia bringing the safeties up to cover the pitch man and if Tech blocks it, there’s no one stop it. So far they are.

12:15 — Touchdown Georgia Tech: Clinton Lynch with a 42 yard TD run.  Jackets lead 7-0 with 7:28 left in first quarter.

12:10 — Blankenship misses a 42 yard FG after Riley Ridley drops a third down conversion. Dawgs can do nothing with its 1st possession.

12:09 — Chubb passes Garrison Heart as UGA’s third all time leading rusher.

12:07 — Zeier: Brandon Kublanow is owing the Tech defensive front.

12:05 — Three carries 26 yards for Chubb.

12:02 p.m. — Reggie Davis hesitates on the return in the opening kickoff and his hit at the UGA 16.

11:59 a.m. — Tech wins the toss and will defer. Georgia takes the ball.

  • A 22-year-old police officer died in Oklahoma on Monday morning after he and a man exchanged gunfire when the man ran during a traffic stop Sunday night, Tecumseh police said. >> Read more trending news The officer, identified as 22-year-old Justin Terney, died of his injuries. The suspected gunman remained hospitalized Monday morning. Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney said Terney was shot multiple times after stopping a vehicle around 11:30 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Benson Park Road and Gordon Cooper Drive. Kidney said Terney was working with dispatchers to verify information given by one of the vehicle’s passengers, a man, after becoming suspicious that he might have been giving Terney false information. As dispatchers were telling Terney that it appeared the man had an active warrant for his arrest, the man ran from the stopped vehicle and toward nearby woods, Kidney said. Terney fired a stun gun at the man. “The (stun gun) doesn’t have any effect on (the suspect) and he continues running through a wooded area, over a fence,” Kidney said. “About 25 yards inside that fence area, the officer and the suspect both exchanged gunfire.” Authorities took both the suspect, whose identity was not immediately known, and Terney to a hospital, where Terney underwent surgery for hours overnight. Kidney confirmed that Terney, who had been shot about three times, died Monday morning. The suspected gunman remained in intensive care with four gunshot wounds, according to KFOR. Terney joined Tecumseh’s police force about a year ago. “My department’s not doing good,” Kidney said Monday morning, adding that in the 22 years he has been with the department and the 38 years the chief has been with the department, this is the first officer-involved shooting for Tecumseh police. “We haven’t had to live through this yet,” he said. “We need everybody to rally around and support us.”
  • A woman fought off a knife-wielding man who broke into her southeast Atlanta home Saturday night. Adrien Gass said she was terrified when the man burst into her home on Memorial Drive and chased her with a knife. 'I said, 'I have money.' He said, 'I don't want no money. I want the car and I want your life.' And I said, 'Not today,'' Gass said. The mother of three told Channel 2's Matt Johnson that she threw a piece of furniture at the intruder, who chased her down the hall. 'I know he's bleeding because I attacked him,' she said. Gass said she locked herself in a bedroom. The attacker kept kicking the door and it hit her in the mouth while she held on to it. 'All my might, yes. I would not let that door go,' she said. Gass said she escaped by jumping out a window and the intruder left with nothing. 'I lifted up the window and pushed out and ran as fast as I could to the neighbor's house,' she said. Atlanta police said just three minutes earlier, a quarter of a mile away on Allendale Drive, someone carjacked a husband and wife at gunpoint. 'He was in the car, got the keys and gone,' Tris Siciginanosaid. Siciginano said the thief stole her husband's car and she believes the two crimes are related. 'It was too much in one night and the descriptions are so close,' she said. Police have not said if the crimes are related, but neighbors said they are staying vigilant. No arrests have been made.
  • Police have found no evidence that the man who killed four people in London last week was associated with the Islamic State group or al-Qaida, a senior British counterterrorism officer said Monday. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolitan Police said Westminster attacker Khalid Masood clearly had 'an interest in jihad,' but police have no indication he discussed his attack plans with others. Basu, who also serves as Britain's senior national coordinator for counterterrorism policing, said Wednesday's attack — in which Masood ran down pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing a policeman guarding Parliament — 'appears to be based on low-sophistication, low-tech, low-cost techniques copied from other attacks.' Masood was shot dead by police after his deadly rampage, which police have revealed lasted just 82 seconds. Police believe Masood — a 52-year-old Briton with convictions for violence who had spent several years in Saudi Arabia — acted alone, but are trying to determine whether others helped inspire or direct his actions. Detectives on Monday continued to question a 30-year-old man arrested Sunday and a 58-year-old man arrested shortly after Wednesday's attack. Both were detained in the central England city of Birmingham, where Masood had recently lived. Prime Minister Theresa May said last week that Masood was 'a peripheral figure' in an investigation into violent extremism some years ago. But Basu said he was not a 'subject of interest' for counterterrorism police or the intelligence services before last week's attack. Masood was born Adrian Elms, but changed his name in 2005, suggesting a conversion to Islam. His mother, Janet Ajao, said Monday she was 'deeply shocked, saddened and numbed' by his murderous actions. In a statement released through the police, Ajao said that 'since discovering that it was my son that was responsible I have shed many tears for the people caught up in this horrendous incident.' Basu said there was no sign Masood was radicalized during one of his stints in prison, the last of which was in 2003. 'I know when, where and how Masood committed his atrocities, but now I need to know why,' Basu said. 'Most importantly, so do the victims and families.' As Basu appealed for anyone who spoke to Masood on the day of the attack to come forward, the British government repeated calls for tech companies to give police and intelligence services access to encrypted messages exchanged by terrorism suspects. Masood used the messaging service WhatsApp just before he began his attack. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Sunday that such services must not 'provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other.' Tech companies have strongly resisted previous calls to create back-doors into encrypted messaging, arguing that to do so would compromise the secure communications underpinning everything from shopping to tax returns to online banking. Rudd is due to hold a previously scheduled meeting with internet companies on Thursday. Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman, James Slack, said tech firms 'should be helping us more' to prevent terrorism. 'The ball is now in their court,' he said. Slack said that if agreement was not reached with the companies, the government 'rules nothing out,' including legislation. Meanwhile, the families of the dead and injured set about the difficult task of going on with their lives. The family of an American victim expressed gratitude Monday for the kindness of strangers as they insisted some good would come from the tragedy. A dozen members of Kurt W. Cochran's family gathered to face the media, sharing their shock and sense of loss. Cochran, from Utah, was on the last day of a European trip celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary when he was killed on Westminster Bridge. Cochran's wife, Melissa, suffered a broken leg and rib and a cut head, but is steadily improving. The family offered profuse thanks to first responders, British and American authorities and people who had sent notes, prayer and donations. 'Last night we were speaking as a family about all this, and it was unanimous that none of us harbor any ill will or harsh feelings towards this,' said Sarah McFarland, Melissa Cochran's sister. 'So we love our brother. We love what he brought to the world, and we feel like that this situation is going to bring many good things to the world.' ___ Jonathan Shenfield contributed to this story.
