Jamaal Williams added 86 yards and a touchdown as the Cougars (4-2) beat the Yellow Jackets for the second consecutive season. BYU had 433 yards of total offense with 345 yards coming before halftime.
Georgia Tech (3-3, 2-2 ACC) totaled 400 yards on offense. Vad Lee led the way with 133 yards on 7-of-20 passing and 41 yards on 21 carries. But the Yellow Jackets could not stop the Cougar offense in the first half and failed to overcome a pair of costly fourth quarter turnovers.
Hill looked nothing like the quarterback who struggled so much in the passing game earlier in the season during the first half. He completed his first eight passes and did not throw an incomplete pass until early in the second quarter. The sophomore completed 16 of 20 passes for 226 yards by halftime.
