Saturday, August 20, 2008. (AP) -- Jonathan Dwyer set a school record with an 88-yard touchdown run, Georgia Tech's defense shut out Mississippi State for three quarters and the Yellow Jackets beat Mississippi State 38-7 on Saturday.
Georgia Tech (3-1) ran for 438 yards, its most since 1978 and the fifth-highest total in school history.
Dwyer had 141 yards rushing on nine carries. Greg Smith, Embry Peeples and backup quarterback Jaybo Shaw also ran for touchdowns.
Shaw, a freshman who also passed a touchdown, took over after starter Josh Nesbitt suffered a hamstring injury on a 21-yard run on Georgia Tech's first drive.
