ATLANTA (AP) -- 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 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.
