Georgia Tech Vs. MTSU Final Score: 600-yard Day For Tech Offense, 49-21 Win

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets got to play Middle Tennessee State Saturday night. So that's pretty good. The Jackets continued their offensive explosion from Week 1 against slightly better competition, winning 49-21 and producing 604 yards worth of offense.

Starting quarterback Tevin Washington accounted for four touchdowns, though he might've had the most casual four touchdowns you'll ever see. Two were short runs, and the other two were catches Tech receivers took for 70-plus yards. A fine game, and more power to him for scoring with such efficiency.

Four Jackets rushers -- Synjyn Days, David Sims, Roddy Jones and Tony Zenon -- finished with 50 or more yards.

Some downsides: two Tech fumbles, the Blue Raiders were able to peel off about five yards per carry, and a pair of garbage time touchdowns for MTSU. 

This will probably continue next week when Tech faces Kansas, a team that somehow beat them last year.
