NEW ORLEANS (AP)Tony Zenon and Tim Byerly each rushed for two touchdowns to lead Georgia Tech to a 38-21 victory over Tulane Saturday.

Zenon had a 19-yard touchdown run in the second quarter – the first of 24 consecutive points by the Yellow Jackets – and a 2-yard scoring run in the third quarter.

Byerly, the Yellow Jackets’ short-yardage quarterback, had 1-yard touchdown runs in the first and fourth quarters.

The other Georgia Tech touchdown came on a 10-yard interception return by linebacker Quayshawn Nealy in the second quarter.

Georgia Tech (2-0) rushed for 342 yards and converted on 10 of 12 third downs.

Miscues by Tulane (0-2) set up four of Tech’s five touchdowns – three interceptions of Tulane redshirt freshman quarterback Tanner Lee and a blocked punt in the fourth quarter.

A sellout crowd of 30,000 witnessed the first game in Tulane’s Yulman Stadium. Saturday’s game was the first on-campus home game for Tulane since 1974, a year before the Superdome opened.
