Georgia Tech came into its matchup with Air Force undermanned with some key players out due to various reasons.

Joshua Nesbitt, the Atlantic Coast Conference’s career leading rusher for a quarterback, missed the game because of a broken right arm.

Number-1 wide receiver Stephen Hill and starting safety Mario Edwards were among four players declared ineligible because of various academic problems. Also, Tech had three defensive players miss the first half because of a curfew violations.

The game came down to special teams play.

Air Force took advantage when the Yellow Jackets muffed a punt in the second half, scoring the go-ahead touchdown, a 3-yard run from Jared Tew in the 14-7 win in the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The Falcons improve to 9-4, while Georgia Tech drops to 6-7.


* The Falcons  are the nation’s number-2 rushing attack using the option attack and averaging 317.9 yards a game.

* Offense led by junior Tim Jefferson who started all 12 games. He ran for 769 yards and 15 touchdowns and passed for 1,342 yards and 10 scores.

* Ranked 100th nationally, giving up 195.1 rushing yards a game.

* Air Force can play with anybody, losing by three to Oklahoma and by five points to Utah.


* With their spread offensive attack, they lead the nation in rushing offense with 327 yards a game.

* Head coach Paul Johnson just wrapped up his third season at Georgia Tech. He spent six years as the head coach at Navy, winning his last five games against the Falcons to put a vise-grip on the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.

*Tech’s defense gives up 169.7 yards a game, 78th in the nation.

* Georgia Tech came into the game with a loss to arch-rival Georgia in a disappointing season.

* The loss in the Independence Bowl ended the Yellow Jackets consecutive winning seasons to 14 and their bowl losing streak is now at six in a row.

Atkins is a quick and strong player, but the scouting reports say his play at Georgia was inconsistent.

As a sophomore in 2007, he had 7.5 sacks, starting 7 games.

In 2008 as a junior, he started all 13 games and had 5 sacks.

In 2009, as a senior, he had 3.5 sacks and started only 3 games. In the Independence Bowl win over Texas A&M, Atkins had three tackles, a sack and a blocked field goal to win defensive MVP honors.
