Georgia Tech 33, Maryland 13
Georgia Tech ran all over the Maryland Terrapins, totalling 370 rushing yards, against the injury depleted Maryland squad, who were forced to start their fifth-string quarterback, Shawn Petty, who typically plays linebacker on the scout team, due to injury.
--Georgia Tech dominated the opening half, amassing 205 yards while allowing just 61, on their way to a 20-0 halftime lead. Tech went up 27-0 in the third quarter, before Stefon Diggs caught his first of two touchdowns, with the second on the final play of the game.
--Both Tech quarterbacks found the end zone, with backup Vlad Lee scoring two on the ground while Tevin Washington rushed for his 34th career touchdown, one shy of the ACC record for quarterbacks. Petty fumbled twice and was intercepted once, but threw for 115 yards and two scores in his debut.
