The long touchdown passes worked so well a week ago that coach Paul Johnson decided to continue with that game plan Saturday afternoon against Duke in Durham, N.C.
Georgia Tech took the opening drive at Wallace Wade Stadium and moved it down the field before quarterback TaQuon Marshall connected with A-back Qua Searcy for a 35-yard touchdown pass.
Marshall stayed in the pocket long enough to allow Searcy to run open downfield, and Marshall delivered a strike for the opening score.
Last week against Virgina Tech, Marshall threw touchdown passes of 60 yards and 80 yards.
