(AP) Miami, Fl-- Travis Bell's 39-yard field goal with 7:34 left was the eventual game-winner for Georgia Tech (4-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), which became the fourth team since 1978 to beat Miami in three consecutive seasons, joining Notre Dame, Virginia Tech and Florida State.

And this Georgia Tech win -- just like the previous two -- dealt
the Hurricanes' A-C-C hopes a serious blow.

Shawnbrey McNeal had a 39-yard touchdown run on a fourth-down
play for Miami (4-3, 1-2 ACC), which came in allowing 111 rushing
yards per game, but let Choice eclipse that by the midpoint of the
third quarter.

The Yellow Jackets trailed 7-0 at halftime, and came out after
intermission with a simple plan: Give Choice the ball. It worked.
