Game 6: 66-31 win over Louisville
In the first-ever meeting between Georgia Tech and Louisville, the Yellow Jackets showed no mercy on Bobby Petrino’s Cardinals. The Jackets got off to a 21-0 start in the first quarter and despite allowing 17 second quarter, the Jackets never really allowed the Cardinals a chance of getting back into the game. The defense did allow almost 500-yards of defense but you couldn’t tell that less than 100 total yards separated the two teams.
In retrospect: The Yellow Jackets entered the game against a Louisville team that falling apart from the seams and they took advantage. Louisville’s defense stood no chance against the Jackets. Louisville ended the season as one of the nation’s worst power five teams and the Jackets were one of SEVEN teams to hang 50+ points on Louisivlle.
Conclusion: The Yellow Jackets saw a team that was struggling and took advantage. The Yellow Jackets showed a “killer instinct” for the first time in a long time.
