Tech went 2-4 down the stretch against an extremely difficult schedule (wins over No. 6 Clemson and on the road at Duke; losses on the road to Virginia and Miami, and home defeats against No. 10 Virginia Tech and No. 13 Georgia. Tech, one of the youngest teams in college football (just 10 scholarship seniors on the roster), leads the ACC in rushing offense (316.8 yards per game), total offense (459.6) and scoring offense (34.9).

nr/nr 7-5/4-5 PAC 12 UTES

Utah, 7-5 and 4-5 in the Pac-12, closed the season by winning four of its last five games and the Utes went 30 in 2011 against non-conference competition (Montana State, BYU, Pittsburgh). The Utes, 12-4 all-time in bowl games including 6-1 under coach Kyle Whittingham, was in contention for the Pac-12 South Division title until an upset loss to Colorado on Nov. 25. Utah is in its first season in the Pac-12. The only previous meeting between Georgia Tech and Utah came in the 2005 Emerald Bowl -- a 38-10 Utes’ victory in San Francisco, Calif. BRIEFLY ABOUT THE HYUNDAI SUN BOWL  The Sun Bowl, along with the Sugar Bowl, are the second-oldest bowl games behind the Rose Bowl. The inaugural Sun Bowl was played in 1935.  The Hyundai Sun Bowl’s association with the ACC began last year when Miami represented the league against Notre Dame.  A crowd of 54,021 attended last year’s Sun Bowl.

2011 GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL

GEORGIA TECH HAS STRONG BOWL TRADITION  With its 15th consecutive bowl appearance, Georgia Tech has a tie for the fourth-longest active streak. The Yellow Jackets trail only Florida State (30), Florida (21) and Virginia Tech (19).  Tech will make its 40th bowl appearance overall, tying for the 12th-most nationally.  With a record of 22-17 in bowl games, Tech has the ninth-highest bowl winning percentage nationally and a tie for the 10th-most bowl victories.  Despite its long success in bowl games, the Jackets will be attempting to snap a streak of six consecutive losses in bowl games.  Georgia Tech was the first school to win each of the four traditional major bowls -- the Rose, Orange, Sugar and Cotton. It completed that feat in 1955.  Following the 2009 season, Tech played in a BCS bowl game -- the Orange Bowl -- against Iowa.  Tech’s first bowl game was the 1929 Rose Bowl -the famous “Wrong Way Riegels” game against California. NOTING THE YELLOW JACKETS

1). Last season it had one game with two TD passes (at Wake Forest).  Tech had a 100-yard receiver four times and a 100yard rusher six times this season.  The Yellow Jackets have played 10 true freshmen – DB/PR Zach Laskey, LB Kyle Travis, LB Tremayne McNair, LB Nick Menocal, CB Jamal Golden, OL Shaq Mason, WR Jeff Greene, WR Darren Waller, DB Corey Dennis and LS Sean Tobin.  Tech has used two players to kickoff (Justin Moore, David Scully), two placekickers (Moore, Scully), two punters (Sean Poole, Chandler Anderson), four kick returners (Orwin Smith, Tony Zenon, Roddy Jones, Embry Peeples) and two punt returners (Zach Laskey, Jemea Thomas).  The Jackets are out-scoring opponents 115-55 in the first quarter and 104-44 in the third quarter, but are being out-scored 103-73 in the fourth quarter.  Tech has had 141 offensive possessions this season and has scored 56 touchdowns.  Georgia Tech, with a bowl game victory, could possibly finish ranked in the top 25 for the third time in the last four years.  Tech began the season 6-0 for the first time since 1966 and 3-0 in the ACC for the first time since 2006.

SUN BOWL HISTORY In most of its early history, the game pitted the champion of the Border Conference against an at-large opponent. Games are now played at Sun Bowl Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at El Paso. The first three were played at El Paso High School Stadium (1935–1937), then switched to Kidd Field until the present stadium was ready in 1963. For its first 24 years of existence the game was played on January 1 (New Year's Day) or January 2; since then, with the exception of a January 2 game in 1977, the game has been played in December with the last 15 games played on or near December 31.

The 1970 Sun Bowl

Georgia Tech 17, Texas Tech 9 Dec. 19, 1970 / El Paso, Texas By Jon Cooper, Sting Daily (Dec. 4, 2011) The college football landscape was a lot different in the 1970s than it is today. The phrase "bowl eligible" had yet to enter the vernacular and six wins didn't guarantee a team anything more than a winning season. There also were a lot fewer bowls in which to participate (11, as opposed to 35 today). Back in 1970, conference ties wouldn't have helped Georgia Tech, anyway, as the school played as an independent, having left the Southeastern Conference six years earlier. But in 1970, Tech was a very good independent. Four seasons removed from the end of the Bobby Dodd era, and on the heels of three consecutive 4-6 finishes under Head Coach Bud Carson, the Jackets had a break out season. Led by sophomore quarterback Eddie McAshan and the running of Brent Cunningham and Bob Healy, and a defense featuring Consensus All-American Rock Perdoni that limited opponents to 296.4 yards of total offense and 14.2 points per game, the Yellow Jackets finished the regular season 8-3 and ranked No. 13 nationally. Tech's schedule was a tough one that season, including four top-25 teams. The Jackets opened the season by beating No. 17 South Carolina, 23-20, at Grant Field, sparking a 4-0 start. The streak ended with backto-back road losses to No. 20 Tennessee then at No. 8 Auburn, led by Pat Sullivan, who would finish sixth in that season’s Heisman Trophy voting. Following the loss at Auburn, the Jackets would lose only once more the rest of the way. In their final game against a ranked opponent, on Nov. 14, the Jackets traveled to South Bend to face topranked Notre Dame and quarterback Joe Theismann. Tech lost the game, 10-7, but showed enough that pollsters moved No. 2 Texas ahead of the Fighting Irish. They would also hurt the Heisman hopes of Theismann — surname pronunciation change and all — and the ND QB would finish runner-up to Stanford's Jim Plunkett. The Jackets finished the season on a high, knocking off Georgia for the second straight season, 17-7 in Athens, and received a bid to play in El Paso.

Their opponent would be No. 19 Texas Tech. The third-place team in the Southwest Conference (behind Texas, and Arkansas), the Red Raiders would go to a bowl over Arkansas despite having a lower national ranking than the Razorbacks, one less win and two more losses, including a 24-10 loss to Arkansas in Lubbock. The Georgia Tech-Texas Tech match-up would be the first in the game's 36-year history to feature two ranked teams and would more than live up to the hype. The Jackets drew first blood on the initial drive, taking a 7-0 lead as senior quarterback Jack Williams orchestrated a 62-yard, 11-play drive, capped off by Bob Healy's two-yard plunge. Then the defense, led by Perdoni, took over. The unit, which allowed 10 or fewer points over the final five regular season games (during which Tech went 41), dominated the vaunted Texas Tech running game, led by Doug McCutchen, who became the first 1,000yard rusher in Texas Tech history in 1970, allowing them to cross midfield only once in the first 30 minutes. A 21-yard Jack Moore field goal in the closing minute gave the Yellow Jackets a 10-0 lead heading into the locker room at intermission and completed what Carson called "the best first half we've played all year." Texas Tech got going in the second half and pulled to within a point on a McCutchen seven-yard touchdown run and a safety, as a Chip Pallman punt was blocked out of the end zone. Early in the fourth the Red Raiders drove deep into Georgia Tech territory and threatened to take the lead. But the Jackets’ defense dug in and when Tech kicker Dickie Ingram misfired on a 26-yard field goal, the 109 lead was preserved. Fittingly, the Yellow Jacket defense would set up the score that put the game away late in the fourth. Linebacker Bill Flowers recovered a fumble deep in Texas Tech territory and tailback Kevin McNamara scored six plays later on a two-yard run with 1:44 to play to extend the lead to 17-9, which would be the final score. Flowers, who made eight unassisted tackles in addition to the fumble recovery, was named the game’s MVP. Perdoni, who set a Sun Bowl record with four tackles for loss as part of his 13 on the day, was named Outstanding Lineman. His four TFLs are still fourth-most in Sun Bowl history even though the record fell in 1984, when Tennessee's Reggie McKenzie made 4.5 TFLs. Williams also set a record in the game, completing 78.6 percent of his passes (11-of-14). That record stood alone until Stanford's Chad Hutchinson completed 22 of 28 passes in 1996.

TECH-UTAH STATISTICAL COMPARISON

MISCELLANEOUS SUN BOWL NOTES

 Georgia Tech ranks third nationally in rushing offense (316.8). Meanwhile, Utah ranks seventh nationally in rushing defense (97.0).  The Yellow Jackets rank 19th nationally in scoring offense (34.9), while the Utes rank 18th nationally in scoring defense (19.7).  Utah’s John White ranks 11th nationally in rushing (117.0 ypg). Georgia Tech has allowed a 100-yard rusher five times this season.

 Georgia Tech will play in the state of Texas for the first time since a 31-27 loss at Baylor on Nov. 7, 1992.  Yellow Jacket co-offensive line coach Todd Spencer was an assistant coach at UTEP in 1989.  Yellow Jacket recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach Andy McCollum coached linebackers and special steams at UTEP from 1989-92.  Georgia Tech has two players on its roster from Texas -- senior WR Tyler Melton (Houston) and sophomore WR Jeremy Moore (Austin).  Both Georgia Tech and Utah are making their second appearance in the Sun Bowl. Tech last played in 1970, a win over Texas Tech. Utah last played in 1939 (the 1938 season).  Georgia Tech’s Paul Johnson has coached in El Paso previously. As an assistant coach at Hawaii from 198794, the Warriors played UTEP every season as both were members of the WAC.  CBS Sports will broadcast the game for the 44th consecutive year, which is the longest running partnership between a network and a bowl game.

UZZI NAMED 1ST TEAM ALL-ACC; BURNETT 2ND TEAM; ATTAOCHU, SWEETING HM Georgia Tech junior guard Omoregie Uzzi was named first team All-Atlantic Coast Conference and junior linebacker Julian Burnett earned second team honors. Uzzi earned All-ACC honors for the second straight year. He was a second-team selection in 2010. Uzzi is part of a Yellow Jacket offense that leads the ACC in rushing offense, total offense and scoring offense. Tech, which ranks third nationally in rushing, also either leads the league or is tied for the conference lead in fewest sacks allowed, third-down percentage and redzone offense. Burnett, who earns all-conference honors for the first time, ranks fifth in the ACC in tackles (113). Burnett, who has 44 more tackles than any other Tech player, leads the team in tackles for loss (9.5), and he has forced and recovered fumbles. Georgia Tech has placed an offensive lineman on the

All-ACC first team for five consecutive seasons (Andrew Gardner, 2007; Gardner, 2008; Sean Bedford and Cord Howard, 2009; Bedford, 2010; Uzzi, 2011). Since Tech's first All-ACC selection in 1982, a Jacket offensive lineman has earned first-team honors 17 times -- more than any other position. Burnett is the first Yellow Jacket linebacker to earn AllACC honors since Philip Wheeler was named second team in 2007. Brad Jefferson was an honorable mention linebacker in 2009. Tech has placed at least one player on the All-ACC first team every year since 1996. Yellow Jacket sophomore Jeremiah Attaochu and junior cornerback Rod Sweeting were named honorable mention All-ACC. Attaochu leads the team in sacks (6.0) despite missing two games with an injury. Sweeting ranks third on the team in tackles, leads the team in pass break-ups (9) and has three interceptions. ON THE DEFENSIVE  Defensively, Tech improved its national ranking, compared to last year, in every statistical category.  Georgia Tech has more interceptions this season (13) than it had all of last season (8).  Oct. 29 against sixth-ranked Clemson, Tech held the Tigers to 95 yards rushing, three first-half points and forced four turnovers.  At Miami (Oct. 22), Tech held the Hurricanes to just three second-half points. Miami scored 24 points in the game, but seven of those came on a fumble recovery in the end zone.  At Virginia, Tech held its opponent scoreless in the second half for the second time this season (also vs. Western Carolina). Last season the Jackets did not hold any opponent scoreless in any half.  Maryland entered the fourth quarter with just three points against Tech.  Tech has allowed just 44 third-quarter points. Category Rushing Defense Pass Defense Pass Efficiency Defense Total Defense

NOTING THE SPECIAL TEAMS Georgia Tech’s special teams have been understandably scrutinized this season. Two Tech field goals have been blocked (one returned for a touchdown), a fumbled punt return resulted in a Miami TD, kickoffs have been returned from deep in the end zone and there have been two punts of less than 20 yards. But, special teams have had their positive moments as well:  The Yellow Jackets rank sixth nationally in punt return defense (3.7 ypa).  Tech has blocked or deflected four punts or field goal attempts.  Sophomore Justin Moore has converted all 53 PATs. With one more PAT, he will break Tech’s single-season record.  Freshman Tony Zenon’s 79-yard kick return against Maryland set up a key Yellow Jacket touchdown.

Georgia Tech has produced 22 offensive plays of 40 yards or more.  Georgia Tech has four pass plays of 70-plus yards this season. Last year Tech had just one pass play of at least 70 yards.  The Yellow Jackets also have two rushing plays of 70-plus yards, for a total of six scrimmage plays that have gone that distance. Last season Tech had just three plays of 70 yards or longer.  Thirteen different players have produced a play of 20 yards or more.  Orwin Smith’s 95-yard touchdown run on Tech’s first offensive play from scrimmage against Kansas was the longest rushing attempt in Tech history. It was also the fourth-longest rush in the FBS in 2011.  The Jackets have scored 15 touchdowns on plays of 20 yards or longer and they have scored 10 touchdowns on plays of 50 yards or longer.  Tech has eight one-play touchdown drives. The Yellow Jackets had zero one-play drives last season.  The Jackets have 27 touchdown drives of less than three minutes.

Tech is 47-of-53 (89%) scoring inside the red zone, ranking first in the ACC and tied for 12th nationally in redzone offense.  Tech was just the second team in ACC history to score more than 200 points through its first four games.  The Jackets are outscoring opponents 115-55 in the first quarter and 104-44 in the third quarter.  Tech has scored in the second quarter of every game.

BALANCED ATTACK Unlike previous seasons when the Georgia Tech offense leaned on Calvin Johnson (2006), Tashard Choice (2007), Jonathan Dwyer (2008, 2009) and Anthony Allen (2010), this year’s offense is more balanced:  Three players -- Tevin Washington (74.2), David Sims (58.2) and Orwin Smith (56.0) -- average at least 56 yards rushing per game.

TECH COULD HAVE FOUR 1,000-YARD RUSHERS There are three career 1,000-yard rushers on the Yellow Jacket roster -- senior Roddy Jones (1,826), junior quarterback Tevin Washington (1,444) and junior Orwin Smith (1,158). There could be a fourth. Senior Embry Peeples enters the bowl game with 976 career yards. TECH OPPONENTS RARELY GET FLAGGED...  Georgia Tech’s opponents have been called for just 50 penalties for an average of 27.8 yards per game. The Jackets rank last in the ACC in opponent penalties.  Three times this season -- vs. Kansas, Maryland and Miami -- Tech’s opponents were called for just one penalty for five yards. Kansas’ only penalty -- a delay of game -- was taken intentionally. .. AND TECH IS LIGHT ON PENALTIES, TOO  Georgia Tech ranks 12th nationally in fewest penalties (4.5 per game).  The Yellow Jackets rank 13th nationally in fewest penalty yards per game (37.5). THE CLOSER: JEMEA THOMAS Jemea Thomas has three interceptions over the last four games -- the first three INTs of his career -- but more importantly, he almost single-handedly secured Georgia Tech’s last two victories.  Nov. 19 at Duke, the Blue Devils were driving late in the fourth quarter for a potential game-tying touchdown when Thomas intercepted a Sean Renfree pass.  Oct. 29 in the win over sixth-ranked Clemson, Thomas recorded two fourth-quarter interceptions.  His performance vs. Clemson -- his first career start -- earned him ACC Defensive Back of the Week honors.  Thomas was the first Yellow Jacket with two interceptions in a game since Jerrard Tarrant had two picks against Middle Tennessee State on Oct. 16, 2010.  Thomas also took over as Tech’s punt returner in late October. He has two punt returns for 21 yards.

WASHINGTON A PRODUCTIVE DUAL-THREAT QB Junior quarterback Tevin Washington is enjoying one of the most productive seasons ever by a Tech QB:  Washington’s 321 yards of total offense at Duke Nov. 19 were the most by a Yellow Jacket since Oct. 6, 2005 when Reggie Ball had 367 yards vs. NC State.  Against Duke, he rushed and passed for more than 100 yards for the third time in his career.  His 176 yards rushing against Clemson were the most ever by a Yellow Jacket quarterback.  His pass efficiency (153.5) ranks second in Tech history.

STEPHEN HILL GIVES TECH BIG-PLAY THREAT When junior WR Stephen Hill’s number has been called this season, he has usually responded with a big play:  Hill has nine receptions of 40 yards or longer and three catches of 70 yards or longer.  Four of his 26 receptions have been for touchdowns.  Has three 100-yard receiving games this season and two games with 150 yards.  He has more than 1,200 career receiving yards.  Hill’s 181 receiving yards vs. Western Carolina were the 15th-most single-game yards in Tech history.  Hill averages 30.2 yards per reception, which ranks first nationally. The NCAA single-season record is 31.9 yards per catch by Tulsa’s Brennan Marion in 2007.  Not only does Hill lead the nation in yards per reception, he dominates the category. Only one other player -- Fresno State’s Jalen Saunders (21.30 ypr) -- averages at least 20 yards per catch.  Hill’s career average for yards per catch is 25.8. The NCAA record is 24.4 by Fresno State’s Henry Ellard in 1982.  Hill, against North Carolina, made one of the great one-handed catches in college football this season: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcs-iqymQrk  He made another remarkable catch vs. Clemson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfALNRblfXk NCAA Yards Per Reception 1.

WASHINGTON-TO-HILL: A CAPITAL DUO On a team known for its rushing attack, juniors Tevin Washington and Stephen Hill have quietly developed into one of the top home run passing combinations in Georgia Tech history. Three of the 24 longest pass plays in Yellow Jacket history have been Washington to Hill, and two of those long plays (82 and 77 yards) came in the season opener against Western Carolina. To put Tech’s longest pass plays into perspective, consider that Tech’s greatest receiver, Calvin Johnson, is not on the list of the 24 longest pass plays. Also, Washingtonto-Hill is the only quarterback-receiver combination that is on the list three times. In fact, Joe Hamilton-to-Dez

White (two times) is the only other combination listed more than once. LONGEST PASS PLAYS IN GEORGIA TECH HISTORY 96 (td) B. Shaw to Charlie Rogers UCF, 1996 90 (td) T.

BURNETT FITS THE PART At 5-10, 220 pounds, junior Julian Burnett may not fit the physical description of an inside linebacker in Al Groh’s 3-4 defense. However, the player Paul Johnson once called a “heat-seeking missile” makes up for his stature with effort and speed.  Burnett has 113 tackles this season -- that’s 44 more than any other Yellow Jacket player. It also ranks him fifth in the ACC and 32nd nationally.  He has produced double-digit tackles in a game five times this season.  Burnett leads the team in tackles for loss (9.5).  He has forced one fumble and has one fumble recovery. MORE EFFICIENT IN 2011 Georgia Tech ranks 19th nationally in pass efficiency (152.6). Last season the Jackets were near the bottom of the pack, ranking 113th in efficiency (102.00).

EMORY HEALTHCARE INJURY UPDATE A look at Georgia Tech’s injury situation: Out: TBD Out for the season: B.J. Bostic, RB Fred Holton, S Jimmie Kitchen, DL Lance Richardson, S JACKETS ONE OF NATION’S YOUNGEST TEAMS  Georgia Tech has just 10 scholarship seniors.  Just two seniors -- A-back Roddy Jones and wide receiver Tyler Melton -- start on offense.  There are no senior offensive linemen on the roster.  Four seniors -- tackle Logan Walls, end Jason Peters, linebacker Steven Sylvester and safety Rashaad Reid -- start on defense.  Out of Tech’s 56 touchdowns, 48 have been scored by non-seniors.  Off the 46 players on the two-deep, 24 are either sophomores or freshmen. TEN FRESHMEN SEEING ACTION IN 2011 Head coach Paul Johnson always says that he will get his best players on the field, regardless of class. That held true in 2011 as 10 true freshmen have seen action in 2011, the most in one season under Johnson. TRUE FRESHMEN WHO DID NOT REDSHIRT 2008 2009 2010 2011 T. Melton J. Burnett J. Attaochu C.

FOUR JACKETS GRADUATING THIS MONTH Four Yellow Jackets -- seniors Chandler Anderson, Preston Lyons and Steven Sylvester, and junior B.J. Machen -- will earn their Georgia Tech degrees Dec. 17. The commencement ceremony takes place at 2 p.m. in the Georgia Dome. Roddy Jones, Tyler Melton, Jason Peters, Michael Peterson and Logan Walls played this season as graduate students. TECH AT HISTORIC BOBBY DODD STADIUM No team in college football has won more games in its current home stadium than Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are 443-184-21 all-time in Bobby Dodd Stadium.

PAUL JOHNSON’S OFFENSE FOR DUMMIES  Georgia Tech’s offense is called the spread option. It is not the “triple option”. The triple option is just one play, or a series of plays, within the offense. Tech runs the triple option roughly 20 percent of the time.  There are two A-Backs, or slot-backs, that line up outside and behind the tackles (there is no tight end). The A-Back is a hybrid position, part runner and part receiver.  The B-Back many people call the fullback because he lines up directly behind the quarterback.  There are two wide receivers, who usually receive single coverage.  The quarterback is very rarely in the shotgun, but otherwise there are more similarities with the popular spread offenses than most people think.

SEVEN DAYS / MORE THAN SEVEN DAYS  Since Paul Johnson’s arrival at Georgia Tech in 2008, opponents who beat Georgia Tech and play seven days later are 3-8 the week after beating the Yellow Jackets.  One myth is that Tech struggles against teams that have more than seven days to prepare. The Jackets are 3-2 this season vs. teams that had more than seven days of preparation. Over the last four years, Tech has won 10 games in that situation. ESPN THURSDAY NIGHT REGULARS The Yellow Jackets played in an ESPN nationally-televised Thursday night game for the 19th consecutive season when Tech hosted Virginia Tech Nov. 10.

GEORGIA TECH SPORTS INFORMATION

 With one more win, Georgia Tech (8-4) will have a three-win improvement over last year’s 6-7 record. The last time the Yellow Jackets improved by three wins from one season to the next came in 1997 (7-5) to 1998 (102).  The ACC will welcome Pittsburgh and Syracuse at some point in the future. Georgia Tech is 5-2 all-time vs. Pitt, but the two teams have not met since 1976. The Yellow Jackets and Panthers played in the 1956 Sugar Bowl. Tech is 2-0 all-time vs. Syracuse, with the most recent meeting coming in the 2004 Champs Sports Bowl.

FEATURE STORIES NOTEBOOK HOLTON GETS ENCOURAGEMENT FROM A FALCON Georgia Tech sophomore safety Fred Holton tore his Achilles tendon in an August scrimmage and is out for the 2011 season. The news was tough to swallow for Holton, who was competing for a starting job and had worked extremely hard over the off-season. Holton, however, got some encouragement out of the blue from Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas. When Douglas, who overcame a serious injury of his own, heard the news about Holton, he reached out to the Yellow Jacket DB via Twitter. Douglas sent a series of four Tweets to Holton, offering encouragement and giving him his cell number. YELLOW JACKET ARTISTS Senior cornerback Michael Peterson and junior wide receiver Daniel McKayhan are both exceptional artists. The Yellow Jacket duo found an unusual spot to hone their painting skills – a multi-level homeless shelter in downtown Atlanta. Peterson earned his degree in the spring, and is playing an important role on defense this fall. His oil paintings have been featured in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and on NCAA.com. MAGNA CARTER Several Yellow Jackets players had interesting and productive internships over the summer, but perhaps most noteworthy was junior linebacker Morgan Carter. The Rutgers transfer interned with the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC.

THE DAYS FAMILY Redshirt freshman quarterback Synjyn Days is joined on the Yellow Jacket team this fall by his brother, true freshman linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days. But perhaps the most interesting story concerning the Days family is that Synjyn’s mother, Paula, was an assistant coach on his middle school team. Paula coached the offensive and defensive lines. MEDICAL CONDITION HALTS McCOY’S CAREER Defensive lineman Denzel McCoy found out before the season that a rare heart condition known as "Cardiomyopathy" may have prematurely ended his football career. McCoy redshirted last season after learning of the condition in 2010, but had hoped that he would eventually be cleared to play. McCoy will continue to receive a scholarship at Tech and is assisting the program as a student assistant. FEATURES NOTEBOOK  Senior linebacker Steven Sylvester was a childhood friend of Atlanta Braves slugger Jason Heyward in McDonough, Ga.  Sophomore kicker Justin Moore, earlier this year, received some individual coaching from Morten Anderson -- the former Atlanta Falcon who is the all-time leading scorer in NFL history.

FIVE GRADUATES Five Yellow Jackets are playing this fall as graduate students. Roddy Jones, Tyler Melton, Jason Peters, Michael Peterson and Logan Walls have already received their undergraduate degrees.

HEAD COACH PAUL JOHNSON Western Carolina (1979) / 34-18 in 4th Season at Georgia Tech / 141-57 in 15th Season Overall Paul Johnson, a two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year and the mastermind behind Georgia Tech’s high-production offense, is in his fourth season as head coach of the Yellow Jackets. Under Johnson, Georgia Tech was one of college football’s biggest surprise stories in 2008 and won the ACC championship in 2009. The ACC Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2009, Johnson’s teams have appeared in a bowl game each of the last three seasons. In four seasons on the Flats, Johnson has compiled a record of 34-18, including a 21-11 mark in ACC play. No coach in Tech history won more games than Johnson in their first three seasons. Over the last four seasons combined, only Virginia Tech has won more ACC games than Johnson’s Jackets. In 15 seasons overall as a head coach, Johnson owns a career record of 141-57. His career winning percentage (.712) ranks in the top 10 among active BCS head coaches. Johnson enjoyed success as the head coach at Georgia Southern (1997-2001) and Navy (2002-2007) before being named Georgia Tech’s 12th head coach on Dec. 12, 2007. What Johnson has accomplished at Georgia Tech has been remarkable: • In his first two seasons at Tech, Johnson was named the ACC Coach of the Year. He is the first coach to win the award in his first two years in the league. • In 2008, he was named National Coach of the Year by CBS Sports. • In 2009, the Yellow Jackets won the ACC title outright for the first time since 1990, defeating Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. • Tech played in a BCS bowl game for the first time in 2009. • Under Johnson, Tech has averaged nearly nine wins per season. • In each of his three previous seasons, Tech has ranked in the top five nationally in rushing offense. Last season, the Yellow Jackets led the nation in rushing (323.3 ypg).

GAME #1

Western Carolina (nr/rv) Georgia Tech

21 63

September 1, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 42,131 Orwin Smith scored two of Georgia Tech's four first-quarter touchdowns, Stephen Hill caught two touchdown passes from Tevin Washington and Georgia Tech beat Western Carolina 6321 in the opener for both teams. The Yellow Jackets piled up 662 yards of total offense -- their most productive game since 2000 -- but they struggled throughout the night to hold on to the football, losing two of six fumbles and allowing a second-quarter punt to get blocked and recovered for a touchdown. Brandon Pechloff, who was sacked three times, had 180 yards passing for Western Carolina. Georgia Tech, facing an FCS opponent that dropped to 10-46 since the start of 2006, showed flashes of a formidable passing game after ranking 119th in the nation last year. Washington completed eight of 13 passes for 271 yards and three TDs. No. 2 quarterback Synjyn Days was 3 of 3 passing for 94 yards. Hill caught four passes for 181 yards. The yardage totals were career highs for all three players. Georgia Tech had more yards passing in the first quarter (148) than it had in any game last season (130 in an Oct. 2 win over Wake Forest). The Yellow Jackets, who led the nation in rushing last year, racked up 260 yards on the ground. Smith finished with 84 yards, which included a 77-yard score, on just four carries Western Carolina scored three touchdowns in the second quarter but still trailed by 21 points at halftime. Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson was surely irritated by his team's propensity to fumble. Leading 28-0 near the end of the first quarter, Jackets B-back Charles Perkins lost a fumble that Western Carolina's Rainey Ala recovered at the Georgia Tech 31. The Catamounts went threeand-out, but Georgia Tech's Euclid Cummings fumbled away the ensuing punt return that Courtland Carson recovered at the Georgia Tech 4. Pechloff's 2-yard run on the next play made it 28-7. After the Catamounts had a 13-play, 64-yard drive that ended with Michael Vaughn's 4-yard run and cut the lead to 35-14 late in the second, Georgia Tech answered with Washington's 26yard TD pass to Roddy Jones. But following another three-and-out by Western Carolina, the Jackets allowed Ala to block a 45-yard field goal attempt that was recovered by Isaiah Moore and returned for a 69-yard score to make it 42-21 at halftime.

GAME #2 (rv/rv) Georgia Tech Middle Tennessee

49 21

September 10, 2011 | Murfreesboro, Tenn. Floyd Stadium | 30,502 One week after rolling up over 600 yards and 60 points, Georgia Tech proved it could score quickly through the air or grind it out on the ground with its triple-option attack. Tevin Washington threw for two long touchdowns and ran for two scores, and Georgia Tech (2-0) pounded Middle Tennessee State (0-2) 49-21 before MTSU's record crowd of 30,501. The Yellow Jackets, who took a 28-0 second-quarter lead, scored on their first play from scrimmage. Washington hit Tony Zenon down the left sideline for a 73-yard touchdown only 14 seconds into the game. Georgia Tech then went to the ground for all 17 plays on its next possession to score on a 98-yard drive after MTSU had downed its first punt at the 2. Tech took 9:25 off the clock, had five different ball carriers and made six first downs before Washington scored on a 2-yard keeper for a 14-0 lead. The Yellow Jackets finished with 596 total yards, 382 on the ground. Washington left in the third quarter after completing 5 of 8 passes for 202 yards, while David Sims and backup quarterback Synjyn Days led Tech's rushers with 91 yards each. MTSU started its second possession at its 40 after Tech's kickoff went out of bounds, and Logan Kilgore hit Anthony Amos for a 20-yard pass on first down. But the drive stalled at the Tech 29 and Alan Gendreau missed on a 46-yard field goal attempt. The Yellow Jackets went back to the air and scored on the next play, a 71-yard pass from Washington to Stephen Hill. Hill was hit by defenders around the 32, but broke loose for a 21-0 lead with 2:12 left in the first quarter. An interception by Tech's Isaiah Johnson stopped MTSU at the Tech 10, and this time the Yellow Jackets mixed up the pass and the run to build a 28-0 lead with 10:45 to go in the second quarter. Washington connected with Hill for 43 yards and Roddy Jones and Sims had 14-yard carries on the seven-play drive before Washington kept on the option for a 7-yard touchdown. Johnson also came up with a fumble recovery on the Blue Raiders' next drive, but Tech had to punt for the first time 7 minutes before halftime. MTSU finally got on the scoreboard 3:12 before halftime after an 11-play. D.D. Kyles dragged defenders into the end zone on a 15-yard touchdown run.

Georgia Tech was the third Atlantic Coast Conference visitor to MTSU's Johnny (Red) Floyd Stadium since the Raiders moved up to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1999. But the Yellow Jackets were the first to blow out MTSU; Virginia won by only two points in 2007 and Maryland lost in 2008. The Yellow Jackets tacked on another touchdown midway through the third quarter when Orwin Smith's 2-yard TD run capped an 11-play, 6-minute drive that covered 85 yards. Georgia Tech put in Days on the next series, and he directed two touchdown drives. The redshirt freshman ran keepers for 10 and 28 yards before scoring on a 5-yard run with 1:27 left in the third. Middle Tennessee was celebrating its centennial with a birthday cake unveiled at halftime of the home opener. Score by Quarters Georgia Tech Middle Tennessee State

GAME #3

Kansas (rv/rv) Georgia Tech

24 66

September 17, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 42,025 Led by Orwin Smith, who had more than 100 yards rushing and receiving, Georgia Tech piled up a school-record 768 yards in a 66-24 rout of the Jayhawks. Georgia Tech (3-0) also set a school mark with 604 yards rushing and played with a passion and focus that was missing a year ago in an mistake-plagued loss to Kansas. The Yellow Jackets ran at will and mixed in three long passes against Kansas (2-1). Georgia Tech avenged a 28-25 upset by the Jayhawks last season, a bitter defeat that sent the Yellow Jackets spiraling to a losing season. Georgia Tech also set a school record with 604 yards on the ground in its highest-scoring game since a 69-14 win over Samford in 2007. Losing its 10th straight road game, Kansas gave up three one-play scoring drives to the Yellow Jackets, including their first offensive snap of each half. Georgia Tech averaged 12.1 yards each time they ran the ball. That broke the NCAA record, an 11.9-yard performance in 1973 by Bear Bryant's Alabama team against Virginia Tech. Smith needed only five carries to put up 157 yards. Peeples added 110 yards on five carries. Smith set the tone on Georgia Tech's first offensive play, breaking off a 95-yard touchdown for yet another record-longest run in school history. Tevin Washington had another efficient day at quarterback, completing 4 of 7 for 164 yards. He connected with Smith on a 67-yard touchdown and hooked up with Jones on a 52-yarder. Washington also completed a 41-yard pass to Smith that came up short of the end zone, giving the junior A-back 108 yards on his two receptions. Georgia Tech had gone seven years since its last player, Calvin Johnson, had rushing and receiving touchdowns in the same game. Both Smith and Jones did it against the Jayhawks. Smith also was the first Yellow Jackets player since at least 1978 to account for more than 100 yards on the ground and through the air. Kansas kicked a field goal on the last play of the first half and actually went to the locker room only down 24-17. It was all Georgia Tech after that. Peeples took off from the 37 on the opening play of the third quarter and the rout was on. The Yellow Jackets finished with their highest-scoring second half since putting up 96 over the final two periods of their famous 222-0 victory over Cumberland in 1916. Georgia Tech broke the school record of 558 yards rushing against VMI in 1975, and the 706-yard mark for total yards set in 1948 against Citadel. Score by Quarters Kansas Georgia Tech

GAME #4 (rv/25) North

Carolina 28 Tech 35

(25/24) Georgia

September 24, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 46,849 Tevin Washington threw a long touchdown pass and ran for two scores, including a 5-yarder with about 5 1/2 minutes remaining that gave No. 25 Georgia Tech a 35-28 victory over North Carolina. The Yellow Jackets improved to 4-0 for the first time since 1990, the season they shared the national title with Colorado. The Tar Heels (3-1, 1-1 ACC) were actually the ones who fought back from a 28-14 deficit going to the final period, tying the game on Giovani Bernard's 55-yard run with 7:22 left. Georgia Tech needed only four plays to respond in its conference opener. Running back Roddy Jones reached out to take a pitch from Washington that looked too far in front of him, going 48 yards down the sideline to the North Carolina 9. Two snaps later, with Finch and others clearing the way, Washington carried it in himself for the winning score with 5:20 left. Stephen Hill had a huge game for Georgia Tech with six receptions for 151 yards, including a 59-yard touchdown. Bernard rushed for 155 yards and two TDs. The Yellow Jackets came in with the nation's highest-scoring offense (59.3 points a game) and leading in several other offensive categories. While not nearly as dominating as they were in the first three games, they still had another big day offensively, piling up 312 yards on the ground and 496 yards in all. Washington had a fumble and an interception, but he mostly ran the offense just as it's drawn up. He completed 10 of 14 passes for 184 yards, hooking up with Hill on Georgia Tech's seventh one-play scoring drive of the season midway through the second period. Hill should've had another score, dropping a sure TD pass late in the game after he again broke free behind the secondary. He pulled up with some sort of cramp or hamstring problem just as the ball arrived, then hobbled to the sideline. It was hard to get too mad at the 6-foot-5 receiver, especially with the leaping, one-handed grab he made on a pass in the

first half, somehow getting his fingers on the ball and pulling it down as he fell hard to the ground. Washington also ran 25 times for 74 yards, taking quite a pounding from the Tar Heels. North Carolina's Bryn Renner completed 17 of 25 for 204 yards, but a couple of interceptions plagued the sophomore in his first start outside of Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels trailed 17-7 at halftime, and Tech drove for a field goal on the opening possession to extend its lead. Renner and Bernard led North Carolina back. Renner completed five straight passes on a right-down-the-field, 74-yard drive the first time he got the ball, three of the completions going to Dwight Jones before Nelson Hurst hauled in a 6-yard scoring pass. Washington guided Georgia Tech on a 13-play, 81-yard drive and scored on a 1-yard dive. The Yellow Jackets also made the 2-point conversion for their biggest lead.

GAME #5 (21/21) Georgia

NC State

Tech 45 35

October 1, 2011 | Raleigh, N.C. Carter-Finley Stadium | 55,811 Georgia Tech's offense kept on scoring - and the defense put up an important touchdown, too. It all added up to the Yellow Jackets' best start since they were national champions. Orwin Smith rushed for three touchdowns and No. 21 Georgia Tech used a fourth-quarter flurry of points to beat North Carolina State 45-35 to extend its best start in more than 20 years. Smith finished with 74 yards and scored on runs of 13, 9 and 3 yards. The Yellow Jackets (5-0, 2-0 ACC) were held to a season-low 413 total yards -- they entered averaging 630.5 yards per game -- but opened with five wins for the first time since their national championship season in 1990. Georgia Tech led 21-0, briefly allowed N.C. State to make a game of it in the third quarter and pulled away with three touchdowns in a 2-minute, 22-second span of the fourth. Mike Glennon was 20 of 29 for 163 yards with touchdown passes covering 9 yards to Jay Smith and 1 yard to Tyler Purvis for the Wolfpack (2-3, 0-2). Tevin Washington completed just four passes for Georgia Tech -- but two were touchdowns, covering 9 yards to David Sims and 38 yards to Roddy Jones. He rushed for 43 yards but finished 4 of 12 for 117 yards through the air. James Washington rushed for a career-high 131 yards for the Wolfpack. His 46-yard touchdown run got N.C. State within a score, down 21-14. That's when Georgia Tech used a scoring flurry befitting the nation's most productive offense to take a huge lead. Smith closed a 13-play drive that demoralized N.C. State by taking a pitch from Tevin Washington around right end and diving across the goal line with 12:29 left. On State's next offensive play, Isaiah Johnson picked off Glennon's pass and returned it for a score, and Tevin Washington hit Jones deep for a TD that made it 42-14 with 10:07 left. N.C. State made things interesting with two touchdowns in the final 34 seconds, including Brandan Bishop's 33-yard return of Synjyn Days' fumble with 20 seconds left to finish the scoring. Glennon made it 21-7 with 1:15 left in the half on his scoring pass to Smith, and N.C. State got within a score on Washington's long touchdown run on its first play of the second half. That came after it looked as though the Yellow Jackets would have their way against an N.C. State team that entered with one of the worst -- and most injury-riddled -- defenses in the ACC. Smith capped each of Georgia Tech's first two drives with touchdown runs. Four plays after Jemea Thomas took a snap on a fake punt and rumbled 27 yards for a first down, Smith took a pitch through the right side and ran 13 yards for a score. Then, he made it 14-0 with 3:34 left in the first quarter when he took a handoff 9 yards for his second touchdown. Washington then made it 21-0 with his short flip to Sims on the first play of the second quarter, giving Georgia Tech a 17330 advantage in total yards. Score by Quarters Georgia Tech NC State

GAME #6

Maryland 16 (13/13) Georgia Tech 21 October 8, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 45,905 Tevin Washington ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns and No. 13 Georgia Tech's least impressive offensive showing of the season was enough to beat Maryland 21-16. Georgia Tech led 21-3 before holding off the Terrapins' fourth-quarter comeback. Georgia Tech (6-0 overall, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) matched its wins total from 2010, when it finished 6-7. The Yellow Jackets averaged almost 52 points in their first five wins and began the day ranked first in the nation in rushing and second in scoring. Quarterback C.J. Brown, who replaced starter Danny O'Brien, had a 77-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter for Maryland (2-3, 1-1). Davin Meggett, who had 86 yards rushing, scored from the 1 with 7:33 remaining to cut the lead to 21-16. But Maryland was stopped on a fourth-and-8 play from its 46 on Brown's incomplete pass with 2:31 remaining, ending its comeback bid. Brown was 4-of-17 passing for 36 yards and an interception. He had nine carries for 124 yards. O'Brien was replaced after completing only 1 of 6 passes for 17 yards and an interception. Washington had scoring runs of 7 yards in the first quarter and 3 yards in the third. Orwin Smith had a 10-yard scoring run in the second quarter. Maryland's only points in the first three quarters were Nick Ferrara's 30-yard field goal at the end of a 14-play drive on the Terrapins' first possession. Washington was Georgia Tech's leading rusher, but he struggled as a passer as he completed only 6 of 19 passes for 114 yards and an interception. Maryland is left with a possible quarterback controversy. Coach Randy Edsall pulled O'Brien after the sophomore's second-quarter interception, his sixth of the year. Brown took over and remained in the game after he was picked off by Rod Sweeting in the end zone in the third quarter.

Georgia Tech led 14-3 at halftime but wasted two secondquarter chances to stretch the lead. Linebacker Quayshawn Nealy, making only his second career start, intercepted a pass from O'Brien to give the Yellow Jackets the ball at Maryland's 28. A false-start penalty helped stall the drive after one first down, and Justin Moore was wide left on a 34-yard field goal attempt. Maryland turned to Brown on its next possession. Maryland left guard Andrew Gonnella was taken off the field in an ambulance after suffering an apparent left leg injury in the fourth quarter. With most Maryland players standing or kneeling on the field, the game was delayed for about 15 minutes as medical personnel from each team worked in a circle around Gonnella. A cart was first driven on the field but then left as the ambulance followed. Score by Quarters Maryland Georgia Tech

GAME #7 (12/12) Georgia

Virginia

Tech 21 24

October 15, 2011 | Charlottesville, Va. Scott Stadium | 47,692 The Virginia Cavaliers beat No. 12 Georgia Tech at its own game, 24-21. Georgia Tech (6-1, 3-1), off to its best start since 1966, came in with one of the nation's top offenses, but it was held to just two pass completions and a season-low 296 yards by a Virginia defense that made the most of an extra week to prepare. The Cavaliers (4-2, 1-1 ACC) sealed the victory by holding onto the ball for the final 6 minutes, making five first downs to get inside the Yellow Jackets' 5. But they didn't need to score, and when quarterback Michael Rocco took a knee for a 3-yard loss on the game's final play, thousand of fans surged onto the field at Scott Stadium. Kevin Parks ran for one touchdown for Virginia, Rocco hit Tim Smith for a 37-yarder and Clifton Richardson had a 22-yard run, all in the first half, as Virginia built a 24-14 lead. Georgia Tech almost struck very quickly to start the second half, with Tevin Washington running 85 yards on the first play from scrimmage, but the play was called back by a penalty. The Yellow Jackets then did it the hard way, using 19 plays and converting two fourth-and-1 plays and a fourth-and-5 before Washington scored on a 1-yard run. The fourth-and-5 was initially a fourth-and-10, but defensive tackle Nick Jenkins was called for being offsides, and Washington ran for 23 yards on the next play to the Cavaliers' 5 and scored two plays later. The teams traded punts the rest of the way until Virginia took over at its 23 with just under 6 minutes left. Jones started with runs of 11 and eight yards, caught an 18-yard pass from Rocco to convert a third-and-6 from the Virginia 49 and the Cavaliers never gave it up. Virginia gained 407 yards against former coach Al Groh's 34 defense. The Yellow Jackets erased a 14-0 deficit with two touchdowns in 98 seconds in the second quarter. Washington capped an 80yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown run, and Rod Sweeting intercepted a Rocco pass three plays later and returned in 32 yards for the tying touchdown. Freshman David Watford came on at quarterback for one series for Virginia, and led a 72-yard scoring drive. He bulled his way for a first down on third-and-1, and also carried it the last 22 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. When Chase Minnifield intercepted a deep pass by Washington on the ensuing series, Rocco came back and led them 41 yards in eight plays to Robert Randolph's 36-yard field goal. Virginia struck quickly at the start with two touchdowns in the first 8:20. The Cavaliers drove 73 yards after the opening kickoff, a drive kept alive by Rocco's 8-yard pass to Tim Smith on third-and-3 from the 23. Two plays later, Parks took it in from the 6. The Yellow Jackets were penalized twice on their opening series, riling up the small crowd at Scott Stadium, and when Rocco hit Smith for 37 yards and a 14-0 lead, it got really loud.

GAME #8 (20/19) Georgia

7 24

October 22, 2011 | Miami Gardens, Fla. Sun Life Stadium | 43,716 JoJo Nicholas recovered a fumbled punt for a touchdown plus added an interception, Lamar Miller ran for 93 yards and a score and Miami's banged-up defense was dominant as the Hurricanes topped No. 20 Georgia Tech 24-7 -- holding the high-octane Yellow Jackets more than 300 yards and nearly 36 points below their season averages entering the game. Mike James also had a touchdown run for Miami (4-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), which won consecutive games for the first time this season and has now beaten Georgia Tech three straight times. Georgia Tech (6-2, 3-2) came into Saturday averaging 517 yards of offense. The Yellow Jackets got only 211 on Saturday, their lowest total since a loss to Iowa in the Orange Bowl after the 2009 season. In its last 35 games, Georgia Tech has rushed for less than 200 yards only three times, all at Sun Life Stadium-95 at Miami in 2009, 143 in the Orange Bowl and 134 in this one. Washington threw right to Nicholas on the Yellow Jackets' first offensive snap of the game, a mistake that set Miami up at the Georgia Tech 46. It was doubly costly for the Yellow Jackets, with center Jay Finch going down with what appeared to be a knee injury and eventually getting carted off the sideline for evaluation. The Hurricanes needed 12 plays to score from there, Harris extending the drive with a 13-yard pass to Phillip Dorsett on fourth-and-3 from the 39, and James later capping it with a 2yard run for a 7-0 Miami lead. With 10:17 left in the half, Nicholas found himself again in the right place at the right time for Miami. Zach Laskey dropped back to receive a punt for Georgia Tech, the bouncing ball coming straight at him as he stood at the 9yard line. He tried to grab it as a horde of Hurricanes sprinted toward him, misplayed it and could only watch as the football kept going into the end zone. Nicholas dove on it just past the goal line for a touchdown that put Miami up 14-0.

In the first half alone, Georgia Tech failed on a fake-punt attempt, had the interception to help create one Miami touchdown and then the blown punt return to give the Hurricanes seven more points. Nonetheless, with 1:02 left in the half, the Yellow Jackets were within 14-7. A 20-play, 92-yard drive for Georgia Tech on the scoreboard. Washington completed all three of his attempted passes during the marathon possession, plus rushed the ball nine times for 22 yards--including a 1-yard touchdown plunge. Travis Benjamin ran the ensuing kickoff back 48 yards, and Harris hit Tommy Streeter with a 32-yard gain on first down to get Miami to the Georgia Tech 14. Two plays later, Miller ran up the middle for a touchdown from there with 25 seconds left in the half, restoring the 14-point cushion and getting help from a sealing block by guard Jon Feliciano. It was a costly celebration. Feliciano got hurt jumping around after the score, leaving the game with a leg injury. He rejoined his teammates on the sideline late in the third quarter, on crutches and wearing a walking boot on his left ankle. An X-ray was negative, but Golden is not sure of Feliciano's status.

31 17

(6/6) Clemson October 29, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 55,646

Tevin Washington rushed for 176 yards and broke the two longest runs of his career, leading Georgia Tech to a 31-17 upset of No. 6 Clemson and likely snuffing out the Tigers' national title hopes. The Yellow Jackets (7-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) raced to a 24-3 halftime lead and held off Clemson (8-1, 5-1) which was off to its best start since 2000. The Tigers had climbed to fifth in the BCS standings. The Yellow Jackets snapped a two-game losing streak behind their junior quarterback, who had runs of 46 and 56 yards and touchdown among his 27 carries. Clemson, which had scored 115 points in its two previous games, turned it over four times. Tajh Boyd threw for 295 yards, and freshman Sammy Watkins had 10 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown. Clemson drove right down the field on its first possession before Georgia Tech stiffened at its own 16. Chandler Catanzaro came on to knock through a 34-yard field goal. But the tide swung toward the Yellow Jackets when D.J. Howard caught a pass out of the backfield, but lost the ball just before he hit the ground. The officials initially ruled him down, but changed the call after a video review. Rod Sweeting was credited with a recovery at the Clemson 19, and the Georgia Tech offense took it the rest of the way, Orwin Smith going in from the 1 on fourth down. After forcing a Clemson punt, Washington broke off the 46yard run -- the longest of his career, though that mark wouldn't last long -- and Georgia Tech stretched its lead to 10-3 on Justin Moore's 23-yard field goal. The Yellow Jackets went 80 yards in 10 plays to make it 173 on Smith's 3-yard TD run. Stephen Hill stretched out with both arms to make a diving catch, pulling the ball into his body with the left hand before slamming into the turf. He rolled over and did a little dance with his arms, celebrating the 44-yard completion. Two plays later, Washington ran it in from the 3 to push the lead to 24-3 with just 37 seconds left in the half. Coming out of halftime, the Tigers took the kickoff and needed only four plays to reach the end zone for the first time. Boyd hooked up with Watkins on a 48-yard touchdown pass to make it 24-10. But Georgia Tech quickly answered. With Georgia Tech facing third-and-6 and the Clemson defense waving their arms to rev up a sizable contingent of orange-clad fans, Washington spotted a hole up the middle and took off for the 56-yard gain. David Sims finished the drive with an 11-yard touchdown run, restoring Georgia Tech's 21-point lead. Score by Quarters Clemson Georgia Tech

GAME #10 (20/19) Georgia (10/9) Virginia

Tech 26 Tech 37

November 10, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 50,140 Virginia Tech's towering quarterback Logan Thomas proved to be extremely difficult to tackle as No. 10 Virginia Tech took a huge step toward the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, beating Georgia Tech (No. 21 BCS, No. 20 AP) 37-26. The 6-foot-6, 254-pound sophomore accounted for five touchdowns, while David Wilson rushed for a career-best 175 yards as the No. 10 Hokies eliminated 20th-ranked Georgia Tech from the ACC race. Thomas threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores. Wilson had his seventh straight 100-yard game, already the longest streak of Beamer's quarter-century as coach. The teams went back and forth through the second and third quarters, scoring on eight of nine possessions in one stretch. But Virginia Tech (9-1, 5-1 ACC) took advantage with ten points in the fourth quarter. The Yellow Jackets (7-3, 4-3) were eliminated from the Coastal Division race. Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington ran for three touchdowns, but the Hokies took the lead for good on Thomas' 12-yard run in the final minute of the third quarter. The play was typical for the big QB, who lowered his head and bulled his way to the end zone. The Yellow Jackets decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 at his own 31. Washington tried to get it on a keeper, but he was stopped about a foot short. From there, Virginia Tech moved in and converted their own fourth-and-1, but that was an easier to call with make with Thomas to carry it. He made his way for a 5-yard gain, then hooked up with Chris Drager for his first career touchdown, a 14-yard pass on third down that made it 34-26. Cody Journell sealed the victory, knocking through a 23-yard field goal with 3:02 remaining. After a wild final minute to the second quarter, in which the teams combined for three scores that left Virginia Tech with a 21-13 lead, the Yellow Jackets took the second-half kickoff and drove it right down the field. Washington broke off a 35-yard run and also benefited from a personal foul penalty on Jack Tyler, who whacked Embry

Peeples as he was running out of bounds, sending him flying toward the Yellow Jackets bench while yellow flags flew in from all directions. Washington finished it off with a 1-yard touchdown run, but he was stuffed on a 2-point conversion to leave Georgia Tech trailing 21-19. With the Hokies driving for another score, Wilson had the ball stripped away by Burnett and Isaiah Johnson recovered at the 16 for the Yellow Jackets. Back came Georgia Tech, reclaiming the lead with lightningquick 84-yard drive that took only seven plays. Peeples went down the sideline for a 39-yard run and Washington nearly took it in with a 29-yard gain, before finishing it off with his third TD of the night on a 1-yard dive.

Duke November 19, 2011 | Durham, N.C. Wallace Wade Stadium | 18,747

David Sims rushed for two touchdowns, quarterback Tevin Washington added 136 yards rushing and a long, late scoring run, and Georgia Tech held on to beat Duke 38-31. Washington finished 6 of 13 for 185 yards passing and ran 39 yards for a late touchdown for the Yellow Jackets (8-3, 5-3 ACC). They rolled up 549 total yards, scored on four straight possessions and held off Duke's late charge. Sean Renfree matched a career high with four touchdown passes for the Blue Devils (3-8, 1-6). His 10-yard TD to Cooper Helfet -- his second of the day to the tight end--pulled Duke within seven points with 6:37 left. Duke forced a fumble from Charles Perkins and took over at its 34 with 3:44 left. Renfree's deep pass for Helfet was intercepted by Jemea Thomas with 2:20 left. Washington and Georgia Tech then ran out the clock to seal their eighth straight win in the series. Renfree finished 26 of 42 for 250 yards with touchdown passes covering 15 yards to Conner Vernon, 12 yards to Donovan Varner and 3 yards to Helfet for Duke, which lost its sixth straight. Washington showed once again just how capable he is of coming up with big plays both with his feet and his arm. He broke a pair of tackles during his long scoring run, which came 3 minutes after Duke had pulled within 31-24. Four of his completions covered at least 29 yards. Sims had scoring runs of 4 yards and 1 yard, while Roddy Jones and Embry Peeples had 1-yard touchdown runs for the Yellow Jackets, who entered having lost three of four-including an 11-point loss to Virginia Tech that took them out of the Coastal Division race. Georgia Tech looked to have taken control of this one by scoring on its final four possessions of the first half. None of those drives took longer than 5 1/2 minutes. Sims powered in from 4 yards out to tie it at 7. One series later, Washington hit Tyler Melton for 31 yards and raced 21 yards to set up Jones' short scoring run that put the Yellow Jackets ahead to stay. Washington's 46-yard pass to Embry Peeples then set up Sims' second TD run to make it 21-7 barely 3 minutes into the second quarter. After Duke pulled within a touchdown, Washington lofted a 56-yard pass to Stephen Hill that set up Peeples' TD on the final play of the half to make it 28-14. Score by Quarters Georgia Tech Duke

GAME #12 (25/21) Georgia

Tech 17 (13/14) Georgia 31 November 26, 2011 | Atlanta, Ga. Bobby Dodd Stadium | 54,925 From the first snap, the biggest plays just didn't fall for Paul Johnson and Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech, best known for its option running game, tried to surprise Georgia with a trick play when receiver Tyler Melton took the ball on a reverse, stopped and threw deep for running back Embry Peeples. Melton's pass floated and fell incomplete. It was only the first missed opportunity for No. 25 Georgia Tech in Saturday's 31-17 loss to No. 13 Georgia. Johnson's Yellow Jackets couldn't stay close in losing the state bragging rights for the third straight year and the 10th time in the past 11 years. Another telling sequence came later in the first half when Johnson called a timeout just before Georgia's Blair Walsh was about to try a 41-yard field goal. Johnson called timeout only to see Walsh miss the attempt after a high snap. Thanks to Johnson's timeout, Walsh had another chance, and this time he made the kick to give the Bulldogs a 17-10 lead. Added Johnson: "Trust me, if I'd have known they would have a bad snap, I wouldn't have called timeout." Georgia's second chance for the field goal looked big when the game was still close in the second quarter. Johnson would have been second-guessed if the Bulldogs had won by only three points. Instead, Georgia led by three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Johnson won his first game in the rivalry in 2008, but has lost three straight to Mark Richt's Bulldogs. Georgia (10-2) scored 17 straight points to lead 31-10 before Georgia Tech (8-4) scored its only points of the second half on Orwin Smith's 16-yard run with 6:32 remaining. Georgia Tech's other touchdown came on David Sims' 5-yard run in the second quarter. Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes for Georgia, which will play top-ranked LSU in next week's Southeastern Conference championship game in the Georgia Dome. Murray said the Bulldogs were careful to put the SEC championship game aside until taking care of the state rivalry game. Johnson said a key was his defense's inability to reach Murray, who was sacked only once. Murray extended his school record for touchdown passes in a season to 32, hooking up with Michael Bennett and Chris Con-

ley in the first half, and Tavarres King and Aron White in the third quarter. Georgia Tech rushed for 243 yards, but just 79 after halftime. Freshman Synjyn Days replaced quarterback Tevin Washington in the fourth quarter and completed 3 of 5 passes for 78 yards, including a 36-yard pass to Stephen Hill to set up Smith's touchdown run. Georgia won without freshman star tailback Isaiah Crowell, who was in uniform but didn't play because of a left ankle injury. The Bulldogs improvised. Defensive backs Branden Smith and Brandon Boykin both lined up in the backfield, with Smith getting five carries. Alexander Ogletree broke off a key 21-yard gain on the first carry by a Georgia fullback this season. Receiver Malcolm Mitchell had a 20-yard run. Score by Quarters Georgia Georgia Tech
