ATLANTA - Coach Paul Johnson believes Georgia Tech has found the right solution at quarterback.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Georgia Tech had two healthy quarterbacks and attempted only four passes. Maryland linebacker-turned-quarterback Shawn Petty was forced to throw 18 times.

ATLANTA - Georgia Tech's football team could be headed for its second losing record in three years.

"We flat-out got our tails whipped," Johnson said. "We got whipped in all three phases of the game."

ATLANTA - Miami's 42-36 overtime win at Georgia Tech Saturday might have qualified as a classic run-vs.-pass contest. It definitely was a game of scoring streaks and big numbers for Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris and running back Mike James.
