Recap: Georgia Tech vs. Boston College

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Vad Lee and Tevin Washington each accounted for three first half touchdowns as the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ran over the Boston College Eagles, 37-17, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Lee completed just 2-of-6 passes but finished with 89 yards and a touchdown for the Yellow Jackets (3-4, 1-1 ACC) while adding 60 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Washington, who started the game at quarterback, passed for 83 yards on 4-for-8 and picked up 63 yards rushing to go along with two scores. Zach Laskey rushed for 101 yards on 17 carries, the second time he has gained more than 100 yards this season.

On the other sideline, Chase Rettig completed 19-of-31 for 264 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Alex Amidon grabbed seven catches for 118 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles (1-6, 0-3), who dropped their fifth straight game.

Georgia Tech gained 89 yards on its first possession but had a field goal attempt blocked and came away scoreless. The Yellow Jackets got on the board first late in the opening quarter when Washington scored his first touchdown of the day, capping a 13-play drive.

Washington's second score of the day, a one-yard touchdown run, put Georgia Tech ahead 14-0. After a BC field goal, Lee replaced Washington and led a touchdown drive, scoring on a 24-yard rush on third and 11.

With 2:01 remaining in the first half, Lee hooked up with Anthony Autry for a 45-yard touchdown pass, Autry's only reception of the game. Georgia Tech held a commanding 28-3 lead at halftime.

Rettig threw both of his touchdown passes in the second half, but the Eagles' lead proved to be insurmountable. Amidon and Chris Pantale were the recipients of Rettig's scores.

David Sims ran it in from seven yards out for Georgia Tech with a few minutes left in the fourth period to conclude the scoring.

Georgia Tech outgained Boston College 391 to 32 on the ground and ran nearly twice as many offensive plays. The Yellow Jackets improved to 6-2 all-time against BC.
