12/31/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Tevin Washington - The senior owns the Tech and ACC records for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 37, but has had few signature wins. If he can lead Tech to its first bowl victory in eight years, Washington will dramatically enhance his legacy. - The Sports Xchange

11/17/2012 - Tevin Washington passed for three touchdowns and ran for another score to lead Georgia Tech to a 42-24 win over Duke on Saturday, preserving the Yellow Jackets' hopes of playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Georgia Tech (6-5, 5-3 ACC) is bowl-eligible for the 16th consecutive season and moved one-half game ahead of Miami in the Coastal Division. Miami ends its conference schedule next week against Duke. Duke (6-5, 3-4) already clinched its first bowl berth since 1994. Washington threw two scoring passes to Robert Godhigh and one to Zach Laskey.

Duke receiver Conner Vernon became the ACC's all-time leader in yards receiving, passing former Florida State star Peter Warrick's record of 3,517 yards. Vernon, who began the game 35 yards behind Warrick's mark, had five catches for 38 yards. - AP Sports

10/22/2012 - Tevin Washington ran for two touchdowns and backup quarterback Vad Lee also accounted for two scores, leading Georgia Tech to a 37-17 victory over Boston College in a matchup of struggling Atlantic Coast Conference teams Saturday. The Yellow Jackets (3-4, 2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak in their first contest since firing defensive coordinator Al Groh. Boston College (1-6, 0-4) lost its fifth in a row and has yet to beat a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent. Zach Laskey rushed for 101 yards for the Yellow Jackets before going out with a shoulder injury. Georgia Tech built a 31-3 lead by early in the third quarter. Chase Rettig threw two touchdown passes to make the score a bit more respectable - but not enough to lessen the heat on embattled Boston College coach Frank Spaziani. Groh was fired after the Yellow Jackets gave up more than 40 points in each of their last three losses - the first such stretch in school history. Coach Paul Johnson decided he had seen enough, promoting Charles Kelly to interim coordinator and ordering a more simplified scheme. Georgia Tech definitely looked better on defense. Of course, it helped to be playing one of the nation's worst teams. The Yellow Jackets finished with 563 yards and held the ball for more than 43 minutes. - AP Sports

09/15/2012 - Tevin Washington ran for three touchdowns and threw a 70-yard scoring pass to Zach Laskey on Georgia Tech's first snap, setting up an early barrage of big plays as the Yellow Jackets beat Virginia 56-20 on Saturday. Washington's backup at quarterback, Vad Lee, added to the rout with two touchdown runs. Georgia Tech's spread-option offense overwhelmed the Cavaliers with three gains of 60 yards or longer on its first four plays. After Washington's long scoring pass to Laskey, Orwin Smith had a 77-yard touchdown run on the second play of Georgia Tech's next possession. Washington started the third possession with a 60-yard rush to set up his 1-yard touchdown run. Georgia Tech (2-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) kept up the high-scoring pace with 1-yard scoring runs by Washington and Lee in the second quarter for a 35-7 halftime lead. Virginia (2-1, 0-1) was held to 98 yards rushing. One year ago, the Cavaliers ran for 274 yards and held the ball 30 minutes in a 24-21 win over the Yellow Jackets. - AP Sports

09/10/2012 - The Jackets played three quarterbacks -- Tevin Washington, Vad Lee and Synjyn Days -- in the first half of their blowout win over Presbyterian. Washington, the senior starter, finished with 161 passing yards and 97 rushing yards. - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2012 - Coach Paul Johnson says the Yellow Jackets are the deepest they've been in his five-year tenure. He's got a senior quarterback and a veteran offensive line. The defense lost its emotional leader and top tackler, but there's plenty of returning talent. Players are entering their third year in Al Groh's 3-4 scheme. So the pressure is on Johnson to restore the glow that surrounded the program when he started 19-5. Since then the Jackets are 15-14, including the 2009 ACC title game victory that was ultimately vacated by the NCAA. ACC media picked the Jackets to finish second in the Coastal Division, behind Virginia Tech, this season. As it happens, the teams open the season on Labor Day in Blacksburg, Va. Georgia Tech will know whether it's a legitimate contender by the time September is over. The Jackets play Virginia on Sept. 15 and Miami a week later. "Clearly the month of September is going to be huge," Johnson said. Quarterback Tevin Washington will be the key. He's only 9-8 as a starter, but Johnson believes he can be more than the effective runner and scattershot passer he's been the last two seasons. "I've been working on everything," said Washington, who doesn't have an experienced receiver. "When we start the season, we'll see how much better my game is." Washington knows he has to complete a much higher percentage of throws than last year's 49.3 percent. "I've just been making sure, when I get the chance to throw the football, I'm dependable, like coach (Paul Johnson) can count on me no matter what the throw may be," he said. - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2012 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech, Sept. 3 -- The Jackets had a chance to seize a Coastal Division title at home last season, but couldn't stop Hokies QB Logan Thomas, who accounted for five touchdowns in the 37-26 Virginia Tech victory. OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, whose personal foul on Thomas sparked the Hokies, will look for redemption in Blacksburg, Va. He's the Jackets' best pass rusher and will be shadowing Thomas all night. The winner of this game has won the Coastal in all seven years since the ACC split into divisions. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Jackets can handle the environment by controlling the clock with their veteran offensive line and prolific option attack. Georgia Tech cannot afford to fall behind, as this team has yet to prove it can pass effectively. Not a single wide receiver on the roster has caught a pass in college. Defensively, the Jackets must gang-tackle Thomas or else he'll embarrass them the way he did last year, when he ran for 175 yards. PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Tevin Washington -- The senior started fast but finished slowly last year, throwing one touchdown and seven interceptions in the final eight games. He will have to be far more accurate than he was last season (49.3 percent completion rate) to connect with his inexperienced receivers. - The Sports Xchange

08/15/2012 - MOST IMPORTANT GEORGIA TECH PLAYER: QB Tevin Washington - The senior accounted for 25 touchdowns last year but struggled with accuracy, completing 49.3 percent. With the departures of wideouts Stephen Hill and Tyler Melton, Washington will be throwing to a receiving corps that has combined for zero college catches. Washington must have his best season for the Yellow Jackets to unseat Virginia Tech in the Coastal Division. - The Sports Xchange

08/15/2012 - AREAS OF CONCERN: Tech must become more efficient in the short passing game. It starts with QB Tevin Washington, who hit 49.3 percent of his throws last season. The defense, which has not improved in Al Groh's first two seasons as coordinator, lacks proven playmakers outside of OLB Jeremiah Attaochu. - The Sports Xchange

04/06/2012 - TEN PLAYERS TO WATCH THIS SEASON IN THE ACC: Tevin Washington, QB, Georgia Tech...Buzz: While a force on the ground for the Yellow Jackets - rushing for 986 yards - Tevin Washington had his struggles throwing the ball, completing a tad over 49 percent last season. He did throw for over 1,600 yards with 11 touchdowns in an offense that was No.1 in the ACC in scoring (34.3). - Matt Murschel, The Orlando Sentinel
