Atlanta, GA (AP) - Georgia Tech is trying a first-time starter at
quarterback against Miami's tough defense after losing back-to-back
games for the first time in Paul Johnson's three seasons as coach.
Sophomore Tevin Washington is making his first career start on
Saturday. He is replacing senior Joshua Nesbitt, who will miss the
rest of the regular season with a broken arm.
Washington drew a tough test for his first start. Miami has the
Atlantic Coast Conference's top-rated defense in total yards and
yards passing allowed.
The Hurricanes also must overcome inexperience at quarterback.
Freshman Stephen Morris will make only his second start as Jacory
Harris continues to recover from a concussion.
