Score of two momentous victories by Georgia Tech over University of Virginia in college football.

In 1990, UVa won its first seven games and raced out to a #1 ranking in both polls. Undefeated but unheralded Georgia Tech came into Scott Stadium in Charlottesville and beat the Hoos 41-38 on a last-second field goal by Scott Sisson, setting off celebrations back in Atlanta that culminated in GT students breaking into Bobby Dodd Stadium, closed for the road game that weekend, and tearing down a goalpost. GT went on to be co-national champions that year, the last before Florida State University joined the ACC and forever ended other ACC schools' chances at the MNC. UVa's season spiraled downhill from there, ending the season 8-4.

In 1998, #25 GT hosted undefeated #7 UVa, and again pulled off the upset, this time coming from three touchdowns behind and surviving a 54-yard FG miss by UVa kicker Todd Braverman.
