In-game Replay: Jerry Howard scores touchdown, gives Georgia Tech lead

After a slow start for the offense in the first quarter, Georgia Tech got it going on its third drive of the game against Wake Forest on Saturday night at Bobby Dodd Stadium. 

The drive took 5:44 and went 75 yards in 13 plays to give the Yellow Jackets a 10-7 lead. The final nine plays were all runs. After KirVonte Benson took a carry 18 yards for a first down, freshman Jerry Howard came in and finished things off. He ran three consecutive times and scored on a diving 2-yard run up the middle.
