(AP) - Tashard Choice secured his ninth straight 100 yard game with a 73-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and Number 21 Georgia Tech scored its most points in a half since 1916, blowing out Samford 69-14.

Choice, who set a career high with 196 yards rushing in Tech's

33-3 win over Notre Dame last week, did not play after rushing for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter.

Choice scored on runs of nine and 73 yards, the longest of his career.

Freshman Jonathan Dwyer added 138 yards rushing and three

touchdowns on only nine carries.

Quarterback Taylor Bennett, receiver Greg Smith and tailbacks Jamaal Evans and Jason Davis also had scoring runs for Tech.

Georgia Tech led 45-0 at halftime, its most points in any half since its 222-0 win over Cumberland on October 7th, 1916.

Tech did NOT match that Cumberland standard of the most lopsided game in college football history, but it set a modern school record with nine rushing touchdowns. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 380 yards.
