Ga. Tech Blows Big Lead, Rallies To Win 30-27

ATLANTA (AP) -- Scott Blair kicked a 36-yard field goal with 57 seconds remaining and No. 15 Georgia Tech defeated Clemson 30-27 after squandering a 24-point lead Thursday night.

Clemson (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored 27 straight points, taking its first lead of the night on Richard Jackson's 53-yard field goal with 11:33 to go.

But Georgia Tech, which did nothing offensively through most of the second and third quarters, finally came back to life. The Yellow Jackets (2-0, 1-0) put together a 69-yard drive to set up Blair's tying kick, a 34-yarder with 5:40 left that made it 27-all. Then he won it from 36 yards.
