A few Georgia Tech notes
By Heather Dinich
Georgia Tech beat South Carolina State 41-10 in its tuneup for next week's road trip to Kansas. Here are a few notes for you from the game:
- No true freshmen started, but at least four played -- safety Isaiah Johnson, outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, running back B.J. Bostic and cornerback Louis Young.
- Georgia Tech has scored at least one rushing touchdown in 26 of 28 games under Paul Johnson.
- Quarterback Joshua Nesbitt has rushed for touchdowns in season openers in 2008, 2009 and 2010. He has rushed for two or more touchdowns in a game eight times in his career. With 130 yards rushing, he now has five career 100-yard rushing games.
- Kicker Scott Blair entered today’s game having made 41 consecutive extra-point attemps. Blair’s streak remains alive as the botched PAT in the second quarter was a “team” attempt.
