How Vols staged awesome rally in 42-41 OT win

Yet the scoreboard after a pair of overtimes read Tennessee 42, Georgia Tech 41 when the Vols stuffed the two-point conversion attempt that coach Paul Johnson said "should have been a walk-in".

In the final game of Week 1, Georgia Tech leads Tennessee 14-7 at the half time whistle.

The teams traded touchdowns during the first overtime and again in the second, but Georgia Tech elected to go for two and the win at the end of the second overtime period. He rushed a school-record 44 times for a school-record 249 yards by a quarterback and scored a school-record five rushing touchdowns - which is saying something for a school that once scored 222 points in a game.

The game is on ESPN at 8 p.m. Watch it with me.

Tennessee junior John Kelly dashed for four touchdowns and picked up 128 of UT's 148 rushing yards on the ground en route to a double overtime victory against Georgia Tech in the Vols' season opening Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Monday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

"Well, what can I say?" "We knew that this was a game where you had to show some resolve and grit".

The Yellow Jackets were 13-of-18 on third down and rushed for 535 yards - the most ever allowed by the Vols - and still lost.

GETTING THEIR KICKS: Georgia Tech is one of only six FBS programs without a single player who has attempted a field goal or punt at the college level.

"I was sorely disappointed in the outcome", Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said.

Jones and his new-look coaching staff will have to do their best work to get this young team to contend in the SEC East and live up to top 25 expectations. A Tennessee loss, and you can start looking for possible landing spots for Butch Jones.

Bell considered returning Monday because the team is off Friday through Sunday but opted to stick with his original plan. The deal would have kept Bell as by far the highest-paid running back in the NFL.

As for the final play, Marshall said: "We had the numbers on the backside".

Next time, skip the fumbles and missed field goals and just win. "They scored twice in three plays in the two overtimes".

In the aftermath of a double-overtime loss pulled from the gaping maw of victory, a unusual reaction overtook Georgia Tech Monday night/Tuesday morning.

And the Vols cashed in, moving 93 yards in just seven plays before Kelly ran in from 11 yards out to knot the game at 28-all with 1:29 remaining. We tried to make the play at the time, but it might have been a little selfish of me. The Jackets went 75 yards in 16 plays, once more punching it in from the 1-yard line to take a 14-7 lead.

Despite these shortcomings, we still saw plenty of positives for the Yellow Jackets on Monday night. Soon afterward, Dormady countered by capping Tennessee's 70-yard march to the end zone with a 10-yard pass to Callaway.

For much of the first quarter, the biggest weapons for either offense were the two punters - Tech's Pressley Harvin III and Tennessee's Trevor Daniel, who constantly pinned the opponents deep in their own territory. Tennessee took a 59-30 win over Bowling Green in the 2015 opener at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. We should get a better picture of who the Volunteers are offensively on Saturday against Indiana State.

Bituli, a sophomore from Antioch, Tennessee, made an astounding 23 tackles, 11 of them solo stops.

RECEIVING - Tennessee: Marquez Callaway 4-115, Kelly 5-35, Ethan Wolf 4-33, Jauan Jennings 3-17, Brandon Johnson 3-14, Josh Palmer 1-7; Georgia Tech: Ricky Jeune 2-55, Searcy 1-42, Brad Stewart 2-23.
