The Orange scored 17 points off Georgia Tech turnovers. DeVito was 13 of 24 for 192 yards.

Freshman Sean Tucker had 111 yards on 22 carries and touchdown runs of 38 and four yards.

Jeff Sims completed 13 of 28 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown for the Yellow Jackets but threw four interceptions.
