Smelter stars in Georgia Tech win

Macon native DeAndre Smelter had his biggest game since returning to the gridiron to lead Georgia Tech to a 38-19 win over Wofford on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Smelter, who initially went to Georgia Tech to play baseball after a record-breaking prep career at Tattnall Square, caught five passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the Yellow Jackets' win.

Tech quarterback Justin Thomas completed 11-of-15 passes for 282 yards and the two touchdowns. Thomas, who is in his first season as the starter, rushed for 71 yards. Zach Laskey rushed for 70 yards and two touchdowns.

Georgia Tech gained 508 yards to Wofford's 326 yards. The run-heavy Yellow Jackets actually passed for more yards than they rushed.
