Georgia Tech Football: Yellow Jackets win after 4th & 19 conversion
During Saturday's game between Georgia Tech and Boston College, the two teams battled for a victory in Dublin, Ireland. The Yellow Jackets, however, fought in the last seconds of the game to secure a 17-14 win.
With about five minutes left in the game, Boston College led the game 14-10 and had possession of the ball. The Yellow Jackets’ defense then held the Eagles to a three and out drive.
Georgia Tech had the ball, but it would need to drive down the field with 3:33 left on the clock at its own 42-yard line.

After attempts to secure a first down, Georgia Tech’s offense was held to third and 19, where they failed to convert. With only so many minutes left in the game, the Yellow Jackets set up to make a fourth-down conversion.
Quarterback Justin Thomas tossed one up to Qua Searcy for a 22-yard gain, enough to move the chains.
From here, the Yellow Jackets continued down the field, eventually having true freshman Dedrick Mills run the game-winning touchdown into the end zone in the final minute.
