Nesbitt dove over from the 1 on a fourth-down play with just over 4 minutes left in the third quarter, stretching the lead to 34-10 and finishing off the Hurricanes. Miami had several defensive players who went against a similar offense in high school, but they had never seen anything like this.
Middle linebacker Glenn Cook continually overran plays or got tangled up with Georgia Tech's zigzagging blockers. Another linebacker, Romeo Davis, got an earful from coach Randy Shannon after failing to stay in his lane on Dwyer's long TD run.
The Hurricanes' offense wasn't much better. Robert Marve and Jacory Harris both got time at quarterback, but neither had much success. Each threw an interception, and Marve's pick was returned 26 yards for Georgia Tech's first touchdown by defensive end Michael Johnson.
Georgia Tech outgained Miami in total yards 518-388, and it really wasn't that close. The Hurricanes trailed 27-3 before finally reaching the end zone midway through the third quarter, and they added a meaningless touchdown with just over a minute remaining.
