Sunday, August 9, 2008 (AP) -- Jonathan Dwyer looks comfortable in Georgia Tech's new offense.

Dwyer sprinted 70 yards for a touchdown on the second play of Georgia Tech's scrimmage at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday. He finished with 99 yards rushing on 13 carries.

Josh Nesbitt ran the first-team offense but freshman quarterback Jaybo Shaw made a splash by completing passes for 59 yards to Quentin Sims and 52 yards to Embry Peeples.

Shaw was 3-of-6 passing for 148 yards, including a touchdown pass to R.B. Clyburn, and ran for two touchdowns. Shaw "played very well," according to coach Paul Johnson.

Sophomore Anthony Allen, sitting out the season after his transfer from Louisville, had 17 carries for 105 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown run.
