ATLANTA (AP) — Deon Hill ran 8 yards for a decisive touchdown on fourth down, Zach Laskey rushed a career-high 29 times for 133 yards and Georgia Tech stayed unbeaten with a 28-17 victory over Miami on Saturday night.
It marked the first time in six years that the Yellow Jackets beat Miami, and a couple thousand students rushed the Bobby Dodd Stadium field after the final buzzer to celebrate with players and the marching band.
Justin Thomas was held in check statistically but was instrumental in running the spread option offense effectively, helping the Yellow Jackets (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Conference) earn a nearly 21-minute advantage in time of possession.
Duke Johnson had 100 yards rushing on 14 carries for the Hurricanes (3-3, 1-2 ACC), but freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya couldn't overcome an interception that safety Isaiah Johnson jumped to pick off at the Georgia Tech 10-yard line late in the second quarter.
