Duke vs. Georgia Tech: Tevin Washington sets records with four scores against Blue Devils

Josh D. Weiss-US PRESSWIRE

Tevin Washington passed for three scores and ran for another to bring the Yellow Jackets to bowl eligibility

Tevin Washington nearly let his starting job slip away over the last few weeks, but the Yellow Jackets' starter was the star of the show on Saturday against the Duke Blue Devils, throwing for three touchdowns and running for another in a 42-24 blowout win.

Georgia Tech took control of the ACC coastal division with the victory over the Blue Devils, and Washington may have re-taken control of the Tech offense for now, even though redshirt freshman Vad Lee had been instrumental in the first two victories of Yellow Jackets' three game win streak.

Washington, who helped the Jackets to 449 total yards of offense, set an ACC and school record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback when he went into the end zone in the first quarter, but he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the records weren't what he was shooting for.

"I don’t really look at the list, I look at the schedule. I just take it one game at a time. I could care less about the records right now. I’m just focused on making sure we get wins."

Georgia Tech now faces a huge matchup with Georgia where a win would give their rivals a second loss and thus would spoil the Bulldogs' BCS title game hopes.

The Yellow Jackets and the Bulldogs square off against one another on Saturday in Athens.
