Georgia Tech Vs. N.C. State Final Score: Like Last Year, But Better!

In 2010, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets lost, 45-28, to the N.C. State Wolfpack. Consider that loss avenged, as the Jackets put together a 45-28 victory in Raleigh Saturday. Scratch that. Instead of taking a knee, Tech ran one more play -- a Synjyn Days fumble returned for a touchdown. 45-35!

Orwin Smith got festivities underway with a pair of rushing touchdowns, part of a 74-yard, three-touchdown afternoon. Tevin Washington, who's been in charge of the country's most explosive passing attack, put up only 117 yards and two touchdowns this time around, though he still sits at just one interception on the year.

Four different Tech receivers caught one or more passes each. Technically, they all caught exactly one pass each.

Rushing defense continues to be a concern for the Jackets. State's James Washington ran for 117 yards, followed by Tony Creecy's 77. But a pair of fourth-down stops, nine third-down stuffs, two sacks and a pick six by Isaiah Johnson make things look a little better.

Up next: the Maryland Terrapins.
