Default Georgia Tech runs all over Georgia with Triple Option...

I love seeing the Option ran at a high level. Today, Tech did that against Georgia, winning that game 45-42 after trailing by 16 at one point in the game. Roddy Jones ran for 214 yards and Jonathan Dwyer had 144 yards rushing.

Josh Nesbitt's job leading that option was fun to watch because he was really good at holding until the last moment, taking the hit and making the pitch to spring his backs for big gains.

You don't often see the option performed at that high a level any more, especially against the top teams from big conferences.
