If Joshua Nesbitt does half of what he normally does when Georgia Tech plays Clemson, he’ll carve out a spot for himself Saturday in the ACC record book – displacing a Tiger.
Tech’s senior needs 44 rushing yards to become the leading rusher among quarterbacks in conference history. Former Clemson star Woody Dantzler had 2,761 rushing yards from 1998-2001. Nesbitt has 2,718.
This is the second note on the Tigers’ football information package, where it points out that Nesbitt has averaged 90.3 rushing yards per game against Clemson in three games. He had totals of 91 and 103 in games against the Tigers last season.
Nesbitt said, “It wouldn’t mean that much more if I get it at Clemson or anywhere else. It means a big deal me going in the history books, but I’m just worried about the defense they play. I doubt they’re thinking about the record right now; they’re thinking about the last couple years.”
