Boston College Vs. Georgia Tech: Tevin Washington proving bright spot for Yellow Jackets

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

The senior quarterback is performing well in his final season as the Yellow Jackets' starter.

As the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets face the Boston College Eagles and try to snap a three-game losing streak in the middle of an underwhelming season, the strong performance of quarterback Tevin Washington has given the Yellow Jackets production they can count on week-to-week.

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson even went as far as defending his quarterback on his weekly radio show, according to the Macon Telegraph.

"Tevin Washington is not the problem," Johnson said.

After taking over for quarterback Josh Nesbitt in 2009, Washington has started 23 consecutive games for the Yellow Jackets and has performed well in 2012, rushing for 13 touchdowns and 408 yards. His passing has also proved strong in 2012, as Washington has compiled 804 yards and four touchdowns through the air.

Against the 1-5 Eagles, Washington will look to exploit a defense that is ranked 99th in the nation in points against and whose only victory came against the FCS Maine Black Bears.
