BLACKSBURG, Va. - For the second straight week the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets put together a fourth quarter comeback to get a win.  Harrison Butker kicked a 24-yard field goal with no time remaining for a 27-24 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets trailed most of the game, but took advantage of every Hokie mistake in the game to complete the comeback.

Jacket quarterback Justin Thomas had a huge day. He ran 22 times for 165 yards, and completed just 7 of 18 passes, but for 125 yards and the tying touchdown with 2:03 left.
