ATLANTA (AP) - David Sims ran for 111 yards, Synjyn Days and Matt Connors each had two rushing touchdowns and Georgia Tech beat Alabama A&M 66-7 on Saturday.

Coach Paul Johnson got the performance he wanted against an FCS opponent before the Yellow Jackets host Georgia.

Georgia Tech (7-4) used mostly third- and fourth-stringers in the second half as Johnson sought to keep players healthy.

Jaymason Lee completed 14 of 27 passes for 205 yards and one touchdown for Alabama A&M (4-8). The Bulldogs ended the season by losing five of seven.

Zach Laskey, Robert Godhigh, Days and Connors combined for five short-yardage TDs. Sims scored on a 39-yard run, linebacker Quayshawn Nealy returned a fumble 18 yards and Harrison Butker added a 40-yard field goal to make it 52-0 at halftime.

Georgia Tech announced that it set a modern-day school record for points in a single half and the most since 1950.
