NOV. 21, 2015 | MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. | SUN LIFE STADIUM (51,355)
- The all-time series with Miami now stands 11-10 favoring Georgia Tech, with the Hurricanes holding a 5-2 edge in Miami.
- The Yellow Jackets’ two road wins over the Hurricanes came in 2005 and 2007 — when Miami still played its home games at the Orange Bowl.
- Due to lightning in the area, the game included a 30-minute weather delay midway through the third quarter.
- The Yellow Jackets own the ACC’s longest streak of scoring 20+ points in 21 consecutive conference games. It is the second-longest streak of any team in the Power 5, trailing only the 38 consecutive games by Ohio State.
- Tech is now 33-33 all-time when playing at a professional sports venue, including 2-5 at Sun Life Stadium. Prior to Saturday’s outcome, Tech had won its last game played at Sun Life Stadium — the 2014 Capital One Orange Bowl over Mississippi State, 49-34, last December 31.
- The fumble by Georgia Tech at the Miami 3-yard line was the Yellow Jackets’ first Red Zone turnover since last season’s win at Georgia.
- This season, two Georgia Tech opponents have hit 55+ yard FGs — Chris Blewitt (Pitt) 56, Michael Badgley (Miami) 57. The only other season in school history that happened was 1980 — by Georgia’s Rex Robinson 57 yards and Tennessee’s Alan Duncan 55.
- The 57-yard field goal by Badgley tied for the second-longest field goal against Tech all time, and the longest by a Tech opponent Georgia’s Kevin Butler hit a 57-yarder in 1984.
- Sophomore QB Matthew Jordan saw his first significant game action, after starting QB Justin Thomas went down with an undisclosed injury in the late in the first quarter. Jordan finished with 60 rushing yards and a
- Jordan’s 28 carries were the most rushing attempts by a Tech QB since Tevin Washington carried 32 times for 120 yards at Maryland in 2011.
- The rushing TD by Jordan was the second of his career — his first came in Tech’s win over Tulane earlier this season.
- Junior AB Lynn Griffin’s 27-yard rush was the longest of his career.
- Sophomore DB Lawrence Austin made a career-high eight tackles. His previous career best was six versus Florida State on Oct. 24, 2015.
- Senior AB Broderick Snoddy scored Tech’s first touchdown of the game, becoming the the 18th different Yellow Jacket to score a touchdown this season. It was Snoddy’s first score this year and the fifth of his career — his first TD since a three-TD effort at Pitt last season.
- Senior S Jamal Golden played in his team-leading 53rd career game.
- Graduate BB Patrick Skov made his first start at BB since the Clemson game — his seventh start this year.
- Junior LB P.J. Davis owns the team’s longest streak of consecutive starts, today being his 26th straight. Four other Yellow Jackets have started 25 straight games: QB Justin Thomas, C Freddie Burden, CB Chris Milton and LG Trey Braun.
