Georgia Tech Vs. Kansas Final Score: Jackets Break School Records, Avenge Loss

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets produced 768 yards of total offense against the Kansas Jayhawks, a new school record. That includes 604 yards of rushing, also a new school record. Tech won, 66-24, which is 180 points shy of being a school record margin of victory. You take what you can get.

Six different Jackets scored touchdowns, with Orwin Smith and Roddy Jones scoring by both land and air and David Sims scoring a pair of ground touchdowns. Smith's 157 yards rushing and 108 yards receiving both led the way in their respective stat columns, with Jones adding 124 yards worth of total offense.

Though Kansas added a garbage time score to make it look (barely) more respectable and Tech's third-down defense struggled in the first half, the Jackets ended up right around 50 percent for the game on third downs.

The best stat of all? Zero fumbles. This is what happens, y'all.
