Georgia Tech Vs. Duke Halftime Update: 4 Rushing TDs Give Yellow Jackets 28-14 Lead

Georgia Tech is taking care of business in Wallace Wade Stadium as four rushing touchdowns has given Paul Johnson's bunch a 28-14 lead over the Duke Blue Devils in Durham, North Carolina.

Duke jumped out to an early 7-0 lead as Sean Renfree connected with Conner Vernon for a 15 yard touchdown. Then Georgia Tech responded with 3 consecutive touchdowns, 2 of which coming from the legs of David Sims. After a Renfree  completed his second touchdown pass to Donovan Varner, cutting the lead to 21-14, Emery Peebles scored at the end of the first half for the two touchdown advantage. 

Tevin Washington is leading the way for the Yellow Jackets, as his 139 passing yards and 67 rushing yards have been crucial to Georgia Tech keeping possession thus far.

Georgia Tech will receive the bail in the second half, with a win they'll move their record to 8-3 and position themselves for a better bowl game. The Champs Sports Bowl maybe?
