Mississippi State vs Georgia Tech 2014 Orange Bowl Live Blog

10:20 – Well, that was quick. Georgia Tech comes out of the locker room and scores on a 69 yard touchdown run. That puts the Jackets up 28-20. If they could have only knocked the ball down on that Hail Mary to end the first half.

9:50 – Mississippi State has a chance for a Hail Mary to end the half. As Jesse Palmer just says, “knock the ball down.” Let’s see how each team executes here. Touchdown Mississippi State. Unreal.

9:43 – Fantastic play call by Paul Johnson. They faked a sweep one way and the QB ran the opposite. Justin Thomas dives to the end zone and puts up Georgia Tech 21-13. There are only 29 seconds left in the first half so the Jackets will likely get the ball up eight to begin the 2nd half. Great coaching.

9:39 – A big 3rd and long here for Georgia Tech. It will be interesting to see what Paul Johnson decides to do here. GT has looked terrible in situations in which they must throw. Well, that time Justin Thomas throws a strike and the Yellow Jackets get the first down.

9:31 – The momentum has definitely shifted in favor of the Bulldogs. They get the ball all the way to the red zone but sputter. A field goal attempt here to move this to a one point game. It is now 14-13 Georgia Tech as the Bulldogs have scored the last 13 points.

9:25 – When Georgia Tech has to throw the ball they look awful. Thomas tries to throw it away and ends up throwing up a duck that ends up being an interception. Get GT third and long and you are going to cause them all kinds of problems.

9:11 – Mississippi State with a huge stop of 3rd and 6 around mid field. They will get the ball back with a chance to make it a one score game. This is important because when Georgia Tech has the ball up two scores they tend to bleed the clock and not give it back quickly.
