NC State QB Throws Circus Interception, Returner Fumbles, then QB throws Pick-6

If you're wondering how No. 24 Georgia Tech managed to obliterate North Carolina State, 56-23, in Raleigh, this series of plays might give you an idea.

Early in the second quarter, NC State quarterback Jacoby Brissett looked to hit senior wide receiver Bryan Underwood for a red-zone touchdown reception, but Georgia Tech safety Chris Milton was there for the hit. As contact was made, Underwood missed the catch and Milton inadvertently kicked the ball with the back of his foot...directly to his teammate, linebacker Quayshawn Nealy.

Nealy coasted down the sideline for a would-be pick-six, but the redshirt senior let up on the gas, opening the door for Wolfpack tight end/fullback Jaylen Samuels to strip it loose. Wolfpack ball.

Two plays later, Brissett threw a pick-six to Georgia Tech defensive back D.J. White.
