ATHENS, Ga. Roddy Jones rushed for 214 yards, including a decisive 54-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, and No. 18 Georgia Tech overcame a 16-point halftime deficit to beat 13th-ranked Georgia for the first time since 2000, stunning the Bulldogs 45-42 Saturday.
The cold, rainy day wasnt a total victory for the visiting team: Virginia Tech denied the Yellow Jackets a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game with a 17-14 victory over Virginia.
But Georgia Tech (9-3) ended a streak of seven straight losses to Georgia by running for 409 yards out of the triple option offense. Jones, a redshirt freshman, averaged more than 16 yards per carry and scored twice. Jonathan Dwyer added 144 yards rushing and two TDs of his own.
