Nov. 4, 2008

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech freshman safety Cooper Taylor has been named Rivals.com Freshman of the Week following his performance against Florida State over the weekend.

Taylor, an Atlanta native, sealed a 31-28 victory for the Yellow Jackets by forcing Florida State running back Marcus Sims to fumble in the end zone with 45 seconds remaining on Saturday.

Taylor also intercepted a Christian Ponder pass in the first half before returning it 28 yards in FSU territory, eventually leading to a Greg Smith touchdown and a 21-10 Tech lead.

The 20th-ranked Jackets head to Chapel Hill, N.C., for a showdown with 19th-ranked North Carolina on Saturday at Noon. The game will be televised on Raycom and Raycom-HD. Locally, it can be seen on the CW Atlanta, WUPA TV-69.
