BYU Defense Tough In 38-20 Win Over Georgia Tech
PROVO, Utah (AP) — Taysom Hill passed for 244 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 65 yards and another score to lead BYU to a 38-20 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday night.
Jamaal Williams added 86 yards and a touchdown as the Cougars (4-2) beat the Yellow Jackets for the second consecutive season. BYU had 433 yards of total offense with 345 yards coming before halftime.
Georgia Tech (3-3, 2-2 ACC) totaled 400 yards on offense. Vad Lee led the way with 133 yards on 7-of-20 passing and 41 yards on 21 carries. But the Yellow Jackets could not stop the Cougar offense in the first half and could not overcome a pair of costly fourth quarter turnovers.
Hill completed his first eight passes and did not throw an incomplete pass until early in the second quarter. The sophomore completed 16-of-20 passes for 226 yards by halftime.
