Yellow Jackets lead Terps 27-7 after 3 quarters

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are comfortably ahead of the Maryland Terrapins, 27-7, after three quarters. Robert Godhigh scored on a five yard touchdown run late in the quarter. Tevin Washington, Vad Lee, and Orwin Smith each have one rushing touchdown for the Yellow Jackets, who haven't really been challenged by a toothless Maryland offense.

The Terps got inside the Georgia Tech 20 yard line halfway through the quarter, but linebacker-turned-quarterback Shawn Petty was sacked by Jeremiah Attaochu on a fourth down attempt. However, Petty would later connect with Stefon Diggs for a 16 yard touchdown pass to get Maryland on the board. Other than that, though, Petty has struggled, going 4-11 for only 36 yards. Brandon Ross is leading the way for the Terps on the ground with 53 yards.

Orwin Smith leads the Yellow Jackets with 89 rushing yards, followed by Vad Lee with 36 yards. Six players for Georgia Tech have at least 20 rushing yards.


Yellow Jackets up 20-0 at halftime over Terrapins

Tevin Washington, Orwin Smith, and Vad Lee each have rushing touchdowns for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, who lead the Maryland Terrapins, 20-0, at halftime. Washington and Lee have split time at quarterback, and the Georgia Tech offense has shaken off some early rust to collect 205 yards of total offense in the first half, 174 of them on the ground.

Shawn Petty has struggled at quarterback for Maryland, who has only recorded two first downs in the first half. Petty left the game briefly in the second quarter with an apparent injury, but returned to the game before halftime. With all the uncertainty at quarterback, the Terps need a huge game from Stefon Diggs, and unfortunately for them, he's been quiet so far, with only 11 combined rushing and receiving yards. Wes Brown leads Maryland with 38 rushing yards.

Smith leads Georgia Tech with 55 rushing yards, followed by Lee with 36, David Sims with 31, and Robert Godhigh with 29. Smith leads the team with 26 receiving yards, and Jeff Greene has the team's other reception.

Maryland will start with the ball in the second half.


Yellow Jackets lead 6-0 after one quarter

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Maryland Terrapins are not exactly lighting up the scoreboard early, but a one-yard touchdown run by Tevin Washington is the difference, as Georgia Tech leads 6-0. Tech put together a 12-play, 81-yard drive for the score. Kicker David Scully missed the extra point.

Shawn Petty, a freshman linebacker starting at quarterback for the Terps, predictably hasn't been great, and the Maryland offense has only 14 yards of total offense after 15 minutes. Petty's fumble late in the first quarter has given the Yellow Jackets the ball inside the Maryland 20-yard line as the quarter expired.

It looked like Maryland caught a break when they recovered a Jamal Golden fumble during a punt return near midfield. However, the offense just couldn't get anything going. Stefon Diggs has been quiet so far, and will need to make an impact for Maryland to have any chance.

Orwin Smith leads the Yellow Jackets with 50 rushing yards, followed by Robert Godhigh with 21 yards. Tevin Washington is 1-of-1 for five yards through the air, and has four yards on the ground so far.
