No. 10 Ga. Tech tips Wake in OT

BY foxsports • November 8, 2009

Josh Nesbitt had already fumbled on one fourth-down play, gotten tripped up on another. He'd also been stuffed trying to run for a first down, and had yet another all-or-nothing play ruined by a dropped pass.

Yet there he was in overtime, standing on the sideline with coach Paul Johnson, insisting he could get the 18 inches or so Georgia Tech needed to keep alive its Atlantic Coast Conference title hopes.

"Are you sure?" Johnson asked his quarterback.

"Yeah," Nesbitt replied. "No doubt."

He was true to his word. No. 10 Georgia Tech pulled off a gutsy play on fourth down after failing four times during regulation, and Nesbitt ended it with a 3-yard touchdown run that pushed the Yellow Jackets to the cusp of the ACC championship game with a 30-27 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.
