Ga Tech rolls to record-setting 68-50 win vs. UNC

Posted: Updated:

Robert Godhigh rushed for two touchdowns and caught a third, and Georgia Tech held off North Carolina 68-50 on Saturday in the highest-scoring game in Atlantic Coast Conference history.
 
Jamal Golden returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score, and backup quarterback Vad Lee rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns and threw for a third.
 
That helped the Yellow Jackets (5-5, 4-3) continue their push toward bowl eligibility and remain alive in the murky Coastal Division race.
 
The teams combined for 1,085 yards, 118 points -- and just five punts -- in surpassing the previous ACC record of 110 points set in Virginia's 63-47 victory over Tulane in 1968.
 
Georgia Tech outgained the Tar Heels 588-497 and set a school record for points in an ACC game, eclipsing its 63 against Wake Forest in 1998.
 
Bryn Renner threw two touchdown passes for the Tar Heels (6-4, 3-3).
