Georgia Tech racked up 362 rushing yards in the win vs. the Cavaliers.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — No. 11 Georgia Tech rushed for 362 yards and ate up the clock with four long scoring drives Saturday in a 34-9 win over Virginia.
The Yellow Jackets’ touchdowns came on a 60-yard drive in the second quarter, an 82-yard marathon in the third and possessions of 66 yards and 71 yards in the fourth on a rainy day in Virginia. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt threw only two passes on those four drives.
Georgia Tech (7-1, 5-1 ACC) broke an eight-game Charlottesville losing streak, winning on the road in the series for the first time since 1990.
The Cavaliers (3-4, 2-1) had a three-game winning streak snapped, a run that followed an 0-3 start that had fans calling for coach Al Groh’s job.
