Georgia Tech rolls past Maryland 33-13

AP Sports Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Orwin Smith ran for 89 yards and a
touchdown, and Georgia Tech stymied a Maryland offense led by
linebacker-turned-quarterback Shawn Petty in a 33-13 rout

The Yellow Jackets (4-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 20-0
at halftime and 27-0 late in the third quarter before Maryland
finally scored on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Petty to Stefon
Diggs. Petty also threw a 23-yard TD pass to Diggs on the game's
final play, but the injury-depleted Terrapins (4-5, 2-3) dropped
their third straight.

Maryland has lost four quarterbacks for the season with
injuries, so coach Randy Edsall was forced to turn to Petty, a
true freshman signed as a linebacker. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound
left-hander ran for 24 yards on 17 carries and completed 9 of 18
passes for 115 yards. He also fumbled twice and threw an

The Yellow Jackets finished with a 401-259 advantage in total
yardage, including 205-61 in the decisive first half.

Georgia Tech backup quarterback Vad Lee ran for a pair of 2-yard
touchdowns and starter Tevin Washington also rushed for a score,
the 34th of his career - one short of the school and ACC record
for quarterbacks held by Joshua Nesbitt.

The Yellow Jackets amassed 370 yards rushing against the
nation's fourth-ranked defense against the run (77.6 yards per
game before Saturday).

Georgia Tech took a 6-0 lead late in the first quarter when
Washington capped a 12-play, 69-yard drive with a 1-yard run.
Smith kept the march alive with a 17-yard run on a fourth-and-3
from the Maryland 35.

The Yellow Jackets capitalized on a Petty fumble to make it 13-0
early in the second quarter. After Jeremiah Attaochu recovered
the loose ball at the Maryland 33, Smith scored from the 5.

Another three-and-out by the Terrapins followed, and a 17-yard
punt provided Georgia Tech the ball at the Maryland 49. Seven
plays later, Lee scored for a 20-0 lead.

At that juncture, the Yellow Jackets had a 170-22 advantage in
total yardage and Maryland still had not yet picked up a first

The Terrapins finally moved the chains for the first time with
6:38 left in the half when Georgia Tech was called for roughing
the kicker on a punt.
