The Hokies (2-2, 0-1 ACC) led 24-17 after quarterback Michael Brewer scooped up a fumble and ran it in 21 yards for a touchdown with 8:03 to go.
Georgia Tech (4-0, 1-0 ACC) drove 67 yards in nine plays, converting a fourth-and-15 at midfield two plays before Justin Thomas connected with DeAndre Smelter on a 31-yard TD pass that tied the game at 24-24 with 2:03 to go.
Brewer threw his third interception of the game on Virginia Tech’s next offensive play, and the Yellow Jackets got into field-goal range with the help of a Thomas-to-Smelter 19-yard pass on third-and-seven that moved the chains.
Brewer finished 28-of-39 passing for 297 yards. Thomas was 7-for-18 passing for Georgia Tech for 125 yards and a touchdown and ran 22 times for 165 yards and a score on the ground.
