COLLEGE PARK, Md. —

Orwin Smith ran for 89 yards and a touchdown, and Georgia Tech stymied a Maryland offense led by linebacker-turned-quarterback Shawn Petty in a 33-13 rout Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (4-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 20-0 at halftime and 27-0 late in the third quarter before Maryland finally scored on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Petty to Stefon Diggs. Petty also threw a 23-yard TD pass to Diggs on the game's final play, but the injury-depleted Terrapins (4-5, 2-3) dropped their third straight.

Maryland has lost four quarterbacks for the season with injuries, so coach Randy Edsall was forced to turn to Petty, a true freshman signed as a linebacker. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound left-hander ran for 24 yards on 17 carries and completed 9 of 18 passes for 115 yards. He also fumbled twice and threw an interception.

The Yellow Jackets finished with a 401-259 advantage in total yardage, including 205-61 in the decisive first half.
