Virginia Game Notes
The series is now tied at 17-17-1 between UVa and Georgia Tech.
UVa has lost its ACC opener for the third-straight season.
The 56 points UVa surrendered served as the most points by an opponent since Illinois put up 63 points in the 1999 Micronpc.com Bowl.
With 297 yards of total offense, UVa failed to reach 300 yards of total offense for the second-straight game. The last time UVa failed to reach 300 yards of total offense in consecutive games was in the 2009 season when the year ended with the last seven games not reaching 300 yards of total offense.
UVa gave up a TD on its first defensive play for first time since giving up an 81-yard passing TD to North Carolina's T.J. Yates to Dwight Jones in 2010.
The 77-yard rushing touchdown by Georgia Tech's Orwin Smith is the longest rush UVa has given up since the 2010 trip to Bobby Dodd Stadium when Josh Nesbitt tailed a 67-yard rush.
UVa gave up 276 rushing yards in the first half, which is more than any opponent had in a game against the Cavaliers in all of 2011 - topping Auburn's opponent-high 273 in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
Coming into the game UVa had given up only eight plays of 20 yards or more, against Georgia Tech they gave up eight.
Khalek Shepherd's 72-yard kick off return was a career high and the longest by a Cavalier since Terrence Fells-Danzer returned a 70-yard kick for a TD versus Eastern Michigan in 2010.
With 143 yards passing, Michael Rocco passed Scott Secules (3,388) for No. 11 all-time at UVa in career passing yards. Rocco now has 3,526.
