North Carolina (9-2, 6-1 ACC) went on a six-game winning streak and won the ACC coastal division last week. The Tar Heels had a chance to regain the lead at the end of the fourth quarter, but Josh Downs dropped 4th and 11th pitches from the quarterback Drake May in the end zone with just over four minutes left.

May, who became a possible contender for Heisman as a redshirt freshman, failed to score a touchdown for the first time that season and had a season-high 202 passing yards. He was also fired six times by Georgia Tech, three of which were fired due to Keyon White.

After UNC took a 17-0 lead with just over three minutes left in the first half, Georgia Tech held the Heels for 97 yards in their final 33 games.

“I thought we were mature enough to play what could be called a trap game,” UNC Coach. Mac Brown said. “I thought after Virginia we went beyond that, but obviously we weren’t. I thought we didn’t prepare well enough for them and didn’t play well enough to win.”

DOUBLE QB SYSTEM

With previous starters Jeff Sims and Zach Prion were out with injuries, the Yellow Jackets split quarterback duties between Gibson and Clemson. Taysun Fommachan. Gibson took more snaps and was responsible for most of the passing yards, while Fommachan ran for points and helped Georgia Tech milk the clock late in the fourth.

CONCLUSION

Georgia Tech: For the second time this season, the Yellow Vests looked deadpan on the road against a ranked opponent. Georgia Tech’s balanced offensive efforts (187 passing yards and 186 rushing yards) floored UNC, and the yellow jacket defense did what few did against UNC offense this year: limited big plays and defended well in the red zone.

“If a team can go all the way and score three points, we’re happy with that,” Georgia Tech quarterback LaMiles Brooks, who played May in the second half, said. “No glasses, that’s even better.”

UNC: Tar Heels looked flat on offense for most of the night. After the run Elijah GreenAn 80-yard rushing rush in their first game after scrimmage, they only gained 285 yards for the remainder of the night and scored just 10 points over five visits to the red zone.

CONSEQUENCES OF THE SURVEY

The Tar Heels are likely to see a significant drop after losing to a Georgia Tech team that has lost three of their last four. The defeat also effectively ended any outside hit the Tar Heels had made while watching the college football playoffs.

Georgia Institute of Technology: On Saturday, the Yellow Vests will take on Georgia, the best team in the country.

UNC: On Friday, the Tar Heels host an opponent from the state of North Carolina.

COLOMBIA, South Carolina – Spencer Rattler he had the best day of his unpredictable career, throwing for 438 yards and six touchdowns, as South Carolina beat No. 5 Tennessee 63–38 on Saturday night, nearly eliminating the Volunteers from the playoffs.

Tennessee (9-2, 6-2 Southeast, No. 5 CFP) may also have lost a Heisman Trophy nominee. Hendon Hookerout of the game in the fourth quarter with a leg injury after falling and fumbling without getting hit.

Even before the injury, the quarterback of the night was Rattler, who moved from contender Heisman to the bench in Oklahoma in 2021. The junior finally lived up to the prospective South Carolina fans (7-4, 4-4) they had hoped for when he arrived.

Rattler entered the game with nine interceptions and eight touchdowns, averaging 198 yards per game. Questions have been raised about whether Gamecocks can verify the backup.

But the younger was patient in the pocket, throwing passes into the narrowest window. He ran when he had to, with five carries for 16 yards. And he even caught a pass in the red from Duckeron Joyner, who South Carolina usually uses as a constant under-post threat.

Rattler’s best day before Saturday was 387 yards against Kansas State in Oklahoma in 2020 and five touchdowns for the Sooners against West Carolina in 2021.

Antwine Wells junior caught 11 passes for 177 yards and Josh Vann as well as Jaheim Bell each caught two touchdowns for the Gamecocks.

There was little the Tennessee defense could do to stop the 11th-best offense in the SEC. The Gamecocks have gained 606 yards after failing to gain over 300 yards in three of their last four games.

Hooker was 25 of 42 for 247 yards and three touchdowns before the injury. The severity of his leg injury was not reported, but he did not return to the game.

Joe Milton III took the place in QB for the Vols when Hooker went down, flipping the ball over om downs after running into the red zone and then leading an assist for 75 yards with four plays in the final two minutes.

CONCLUSION

Tennessee: A promising season for Tennessee collapsed when the defense failed to stop. South Carolina scored touchdowns on nine of 11 drives. One of the failures was a one-game pass that ended the first half.

South Carolina: The Gamecocks beat a top-five team for only the seventh time, and their fans rushed onto the field. It was their biggest win since they eliminated #2 Georgia 20–17 in double overtime in 2019. The 63 points was the Gamecocks’ most in an SEC game since they beat Mississippi State 65-39 in 1995.

CONSEQUENCES OF THE SURVEY

On a day when many of the top teams bent but didn’t break (see No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan, and No. 4 TCU), Tennessee was hit by a car. Vols is likely to drop significantly in the new Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday.

NEXT

Tennessee: Oxen heading to Vanderbilt. Tennessee is on a three straight win streak after three straight losses.
