NCAA Game Summary - Georgia Tech at Middle Tennessee

(Saturday, September 10th)

Final Score: Georgia Tech 49, Middle Tennessee 21

Murfreesboro, TN (Sports Network) - Quarterback Tevin Washington completed just 5-of-8 passes but still finished with a staggering 202 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets registered a resounding 49-21 win over the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in non-conference action at Floyd Stadium.

Washington was also credited with 10 rushing attempts for the Yellow Jackets (2-0), resulting in just six net yards but still another two TDs for Tech in the triumph. Synjyn Days tied David Sims for the rushing lead with 92 yards, the former crossing the goal line twice himself.

The Blue Raiders, (0-2) were paced by running back Benny Cunningham who produced 80 yards on 15 attempts, while quarterback Logan Kilgore converted 16-of-28 passes for 114 yards and an interception. Fellow signal-caller Jeff Murphy stepped in to complete 5-of-6 attempts for 54 yards and a score.

GaTech rattled off 28 unanswered points to begin the night and never looked back as Washington connected with Tony Zenon on a 73-yard TD strike on the very first play from scrimmage. Later in the first quarter Washington found the end zone himself on a two-yard run at the 4:10 mark and less than two minutes later it was Washington to Stephen Hill for another lengthy 71-yard TD pass play to make the score 21-0.

Capping a seven-play, 90-yard drive in the second frame, Washington called his own number and crossed the goal line from seven yards away to boost the score to 28-0.

Middle Tennessee finally landed on the scoreboard with just over three minutes remaining in the first half as D.D. Kyles finished off an 11-play, 68-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown run to cut the deficit to 28-7 at the break.

Midway through the third quarter Orwin Smith scored on a two-yard TD run and then later in the period Days matched the effort with a five-yard scoring run of his own to make the score 42-7.

Cunningham responded for the Blue Raiders two minutes into the fourth quarter as he landed in the end zone on a one-yard run and later in the frame Murphy connected with Sancho McDonald on an 18-yard TD pass play, but in between Days scored his second touchdown of the night for the visitors on a one-yard effort as the Yellow Jackets ran away with the 28-point triumph.

Georgia Tech, which led the nation in rushing a season ago with 323.3 ypg and produced close to 300 yards in the season-opening win over Western Carolina, finished with 382 yards on 65 attempts on Saturday.
