MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. – After Georgia Tech’s opening scoring drive, Miami scored 31 unanswered points as the Hurricanes defeated the Yellow Jackets 38-21 on a wet and soggy Saturday afternoon in south Florida.

Redshirt freshman QB Matthew Jordan relieved starter Justin Thomas after he sustained an undisclosed injury on the Jackets’ opening drive.

”You always have to expect the worst so I can get myself ready,” said Jordan, who replaced Thomas and completed 4 of 8 passes for 59 yards and an interception. ”On the sidelines I stay focused-in, so I usually know what’s going on.”

Jordan finished with 59 yards through the air and 60 yards on the ground. Freshman Marcus Marshall led the Jackets rushing attack with 74 yards on eight carries.

Lynn Griffin rushed for a career-best 67 yards on four carries, while Clinton Lynch added 61 yards, including a 36-yard run on the game’s first offensive play.

Georgia Tech committed four turnovers (two fumbles, two interceptions). The Jackets fumbled a season-high nine times.

”Another disappointing performance,” Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. ”Can’t seem to get out of our own way.”

Lawrence Austin recorded a career-high eight tackles. P.J. Davis added eight tackles, while Jamal Golden recorded seven.
