Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets quarterback Tevin Washington has now completed 17 passes on the year, with eight of them going for touchdowns. He found Stephen Hill, he of the GIF-worthy one-handed catches, for a wide-open 59-yard score to make it 10-7 Jackets over the North Carolina Tar Heels. Just before halftime, Roddy Jones plowed in for a short yardage touchdown, putting Tech up 17-7.
Washington has turned the ball over twice, however, throwing a pick into something like triple coverage and losing a fumble. That was his first pick of the season. Considering Tech has missed a field goal, gone for another field goal, and turned the ball over twice ... it could be a whole lot worse for the Heels right now.
Hill has been fantastic, catching four passes for 118 yards already, the last of which was a 34-yarder that included a sneaky shove to clear out some space. "Sneaky." #codedlanguage
Tech's defense has forced four punts already, even managing to block one of them. Other than UNC's opening drive, the Heels haven't been able to get a whole lot done with the ball. Pretty impressed so far. The yardage differential: 272 to 84.
UNC's best player, defensive end Quinton Coples, was spotted on the bench with his head in his hands for several minutes. Carolina has some work to do.
