High-scoring Georgia Tech playing like contender

ATLANTA (AP) - Back-to-back lopsided wins have lifted Georgia Tech's hopes in the ACC's Coastal Division.

The Yellow Jackets have scored more than 50 points in consecutive games for the first time since 1936. Coach Paul Johnson's spread-option offense, led by senior quarterback Tevin Washington, has shown impressive depth, experience and big-play potential.

Johnson says his Yellow Jackets, who overwhelmed Virginia 56-20 last week, would be back in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division race if they can beat Miami on Saturday.

A season-opening overtime loss to division rival Virginia Tech was a bad start for Georgia Tech. Johnson said he likes the way his players have responded with two big wins, including a rout of Presbyterian.
