BYU vs. Georgia Tech: Paul Johnson says Yellow Jackets 'got their tails whipped'

Geoff Burke

Georgia Tech was dominated by Brigham Young on Saturday. Paul Johnson says the Jackets "flat-out got their tails whipped."

Georgia Tech wasn't very effective in their 41-17 loss to Brigham Young on Saturday. Maybe that's an understatement, so we'll leave it to Tech head coach Paul Johnson to spell it out:

"We flat-out got our tails whipped. We got whipped in all three phases of the game."

BYU's defense entered the game ranked No. 4 in the nation, and the Yellow Jackets did nothing to prove it to be any different. The Jackets' offense only put up 157 total yards, 117 rushing and 40 passing and 10 missed opportunities on third down.

Orwin Smith, who rushed for just 31 yards against BYU, said it was frustrating that Tech isn't able to move the ball consistently. Frustration is building within the Jackets after now dropping four of their last five games.

The Tech defense, which is giving up almost 45 points a game in those four losses mentioned, allowed a 17-year-old freshman in Jamaal Williams rush for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries. BYU quarterback Riley Nelson had a decent day completing 19-of-28 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown.

And the Jackets had no answer.
