ATLANTA (AP) -- 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.
