BYU Vs. Georgia Tech Score: Cougars lead Yellow Jackets 24-14 at half

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets trail the Brigham Young Cougars 24-14 at halftime in Atlanta's Bobby Dodd Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets have struggled offensively through the first two quarters, gaining just 86 total yards to BYU's 214 and failing to convert on a single third down. The Cougars, on the other hand, have moved the ball well with their balanced offensive attack. BYU quarterback Riley Nelson is 13 of 19 for 124 yards while halfback Jamaal Williams has gained 54 yards on 14 carries with two scores.

The Cougars scored first, with Williams rushing for a six yard touchdown to cap a 12 play, 55 yard drive in the first quarter. Tech would then tie the ballgame with an Isaiah Johnson 22 yard interception return of a Riley Nelson pass for a touchdown.

The second quarter was all BYU, though, as Jamaal Williams and Riley Nelson would both rush for Cougar touchdowns to establish a 14 point lead. After Nelson's touchdown, Georgia Tech's Jamal Golden would return the ensuing kickoff for 97 yards and a touchdown. One drive later, BYU kicker Justin Sorensen would make 26 yard field goal bringing the game to its current 24-14 margin.

Georgia Tech will receive the ball to start the second half.
