Georgia Tech beat South Carolina State 41-10 in its tuneup for next week's road trip to Kansas. Here are a few notes for you from the game:
No true freshmen started, but at least four played -- safety Isaiah Johnson, outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, running back B.J. Bostic and cornerback Louis Young.
Georgia Tech has scored at least one rushing touchdown in 26 of 28 games under Paul Johnson.
Quarterback Joshua Nesbitt has rushed for touchdowns in season openers in 2008, 2009 and 2010. He has rushed for two or more touchdowns in a game eight times in his career. With 130 yards rushing, he now has five career 100-yard rushing games.
Kicker Scott Blair entered today’s game having made 41 consecutive extra-point attemps. Blair’s streak remains alive as the botched PAT in the second quarter was a “team” attempt.
