ATLANTA (AP) _ Tevin Washington ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns and Georgia Tech’s least impressive offensive showing of the season was enough.
Georgia Tech led 21-3 before holding off the Terrapins’ fourth-quarter comeback.

Quarterback C.J. Brown, who replaced starter Danny O’Brien, had a 77-yard touchdown run early in the quarter for Maryland (2-3, 1-1). Davin Meggett, who had 86 yards rushing, scored from the 1 with 7:33 remaining to cut the lead to 21-16.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) _ Geno Smith threw for 450 yards and four touchdowns and West Virginia navigated through another slow start to win its Big East opener.

Connecticut (2-4, 0-1) was picked apart on defense for the second straight week and its offense was limited to 275 total yards.
