Georgia Tech sophomore RB KirVonte Benson rushed for 86 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's 28-22 win over Virginia Tech. Jeune dove in and clipped the pylon.

On its final possession, Virginia Tech converted a pair of fourth-down plays and faced third-and-1 at the Georgia Tech 32 with plenty of time to deal the home team another tough loss.

TaQuon Marshall got two long touchdown passes out of his only completions, including an 80-yarder to Ricky Jeune with 6 ½ minutes left, and Ajani Kerr swatted away a fourth-down pass in the end zone to preserve the Yellow Jackets' upset of the Hokies.

Virginia Tech (7-3, 3-3) got 153 yards passing from Jackson, who completed 14 of 26.

But, on a day when he made a number of curious decisions, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente called a pair of passes rather than running for the first down. Marshall capped the drive off six plays later with a touchdown and the lead was 14-3. Defensive end KeShun Freeman, in the game as a blocking back, took the direct snap and ran 3 yards for a first down. Marshall finished 2-8 for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

Virginia Tech immediately answered with its first touchdown.

The Hokies would get a quick response from Travon McMillian as the redshirt junior returned the kickoff to the Georgia Tech 29.

Stewart also had two punt returns, one for a season-long 21 yards.

Another failed two-point conversation left the score there with 7:27 remaining.

The Yellow Jackets were poised to extend the lead when a penalty for a chop block stalled their drive and forced them to settle for a 43-yard field goal attempt, which Brenton King missed wide right.

With the loss, the Hokies have now lost three of their last four vs. Georgia Tech and drop to 7-3 overall, 3-3 in the ACC.

The Hokies offense couldn't get anything going on its next drive and Georgia Tech took over with good field position. Starting LT Jahaziel Lee missed the game with a lower body injury.
