Georgia Tech Vs. N.C. State Score: Orwin Smith Starts As Orwin Smith Starts

Stop me if you've heard this one: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets running back Orwin Smith started a game off with a touchdown run. It wasn't the first play of the game, sorry to say, but this is getting to be something of a tradition. The Jackets led the N.C. State Wolfpack, 7-0, after a missed Pack field goal.

A 40-yard Stephen Hill catch of a slight Tevin Washington underthrow set up a second touchdown scamper by Smith, who's up to 27 yards, and ... well, 14-0 might just about do it. N.C. State has a 250-pound defensive tackle out there due to injuries. Not a great week for that.

State was able to move the ball a little bit, as you may have surmised since they were in field goal range. James Washington caught and ran for 27 yards, forming the bulk of the Wolfpack offense.
