1976 Tech Victory Over Notre Dame

For those of you who were not alive or do not remember, we won this game without throwing a single pass. For some of you this will be a trip down memory lane, for others it is a very interesting history lesson. Enjoy, yb

From CBS Sportsline...

Beat Notre Dame without throwing a pass? Georgia Tech did it in 1976

ATLANTA (AP) -On Georgia Tech's second series of the game, quarterback Gary Lanier faked a handoff to the fullback, as he usually did, and began running along the line of scrimmage, as he usually did. Then, he tried something he hardly ever did.

He dropped back to pass.

Before the 5-foot-8 1/2, 170-pound Lanier even had a chance to look for a receiver, he was enveloped by Notre Dame's massive defensive star, Ross Browner. On the sideline, Yellow Jackets coach Pepper Rodgers watched with disgust as Browner and teammate Willie Fry celebrated the 8-yard loss.

"They jumped up and started strutting around, like they always do when they sack somebody," Rodgers recalled. "I turned to one of my coaches and said, 'I'll tell you this. We may not win this game, but that's the last time they're going to strut on our field. From this point on, they're going to play against the option."'

That's just what the Yellow Jackets did. They never attempted another pass. On a memorable November afternoon in 1976, Georgia Tech and its wishbone offense won 23-14 over mighty Notre Dame - ranked No. 11 at the time and the team that would win it all the following season - without ever putting the ball in the air.
