ATLANTA (AP) — Todd Gurley ran for 122 yards and three touchdowns, including two scores after regulation, and Georgia rallied after trailing by 20 points in the first half to beat Georgia Tech 41-34 in overtime Saturday night.
Gurley’s 25-yard touchdown run in the second and final overtime gave Georgia its first lead.
Vad Lee passed for a career-high 232 yards for Georgia Tech, but his fourth-down pass for Darren Waller was deflected by Georgia’s Ramik Wilson to end the game.
Hutson Mason overcame a shaky first half in his first start to lead the comeback for Georgia (8-4), which has won 12 of 13 games in the series under coach Mark Richt, including five straight.
Georgia Tech (7-5) blew leads of 20-0 in the second quarter and 20-7 at halftime.
Lee threw two touchdown passes to DeAndre Smelter as Georgia Tech, which usually emphasizes the run, instead attacked Georgia through the air.
