“The way I look at it, the best way to keep a dynamic offense from scoring points is keeping them off the field,” Tech quarterback Logan Thomas said. “Hopefully, we can do that by keeping the ball, but also punching it in for seven because that just takes the time off the clock and gets you seven points and it limits their time being on the field, so it makes it that much better for our defense and that much better for our offense and it kind of makes them one-handed.”
