The quick-strike Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets lived up to their reputation on their opening drive against the Maryland Terrapins, scoring on a Tevin Washington scramble from the seven-yard line. The eight-play, 66-yard effort made for the fifth time this season Tech has scored a touchdown on its first drive.
Maryland's uniforms are horrible. This is not breaking news.
Washington carried the load, running thrice for 31 yards. He also completed a 21-yarder to Tyler Melton.
Maryland couldn't get anything going on their first effort, putting up seven yards before punting. It was a pretty good punt.
Gotta say, watching the Red River Shootout buildup on GameDay and then going straight to a drowsy Bobby Dodd Stadium littered with those appalling Maryland uniforms was jarring.
