Jackets Down No. 4 Hokies, 28-23

ATLANTA (AP) -- Virginia Tech might have lost its shot at a national championship on another doomed trip to Atlanta.

Josh Nesbitt rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns -- the last of them tiptoeing down the sideline to finish off the fourth-ranked Hokies with 3 minutes left -- as No. 19 Georgia Tech ran to a 28-23 win that threw the Atlantic Coast Conference race up for grabs while perhaps finishing off the league's top contender in the national race.

Georgia Tech (6-1, 4-1 ACC) completed just one pass but ran for 309 yards out of its spread option offense -- all but 37 of those yards coming in the second half.

Excuse Virginia Tech (5-2, 3-1) if it passes on any more trips to Atlanta for a while. The Hokies opened the season with a 34-24 loss to Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game, about a mile away at the Georgia Dome.
