The Yellow Jackets (2-1, 1-1 ACC) scored on their first four possessions and their spread option attack proved far too much for the Cavaliers (2-1, 0-1 ACC) to handle.

Everyone had a hand in the blowout for Tech, with 10 players getting at least one carry and six catching at least one pass.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Georgia Tech evened up the all-time series 17-17-1 and the home team has now won six of the last eight...
