College Football: Georgia Tech runs over Notre Dame Georgia Tech scored a major football victory on Saturday, amazing even for head coach Chan Gailey, winning the game 33-3. Tashard Choice turned out to be a great weapon in the GA Tech arsenal and the fans quickly got over the loss of Calvin Johnson. Tashad Choice rushed for a career high today 196 years, carried the ball 26 times and added two touchdowns, to settle the score from the last season's opener, when Georgia Tech lost 14-10 to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish had just 12 first downs and amassed only 121 yards in the loss.

"I did not see this coming. I thought we would play pretty well defensively. I did not know we would run the ball as well as we ran it today," Yellow Jackets coach Gailey said. He added: "We're going to blitz you. We don't care who you are. We thought the challenge was to stop the running game to see if they could throw the ball well enough to beat us. We just wanted to make a statement and come here to Notre Dame and let everybody know that Georgia Tech is going to be a team to reckon with this year."

It was unexpected lost of this magnitude for the Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis. He pointed out that the problem was in lack of preparation for the speed of the game and took the blame for not getting the team ready. "Who else are you going to blame but yourself? I'm the head coach. It's my responsibility," said Weis after the game. This was the first time Notre Dame failed to score a touchdown in the season opener since 1985 against Michigan.

Georgia Tech won the game as a 1.5-point underdog on the road, while the 36 points fell well UNDER the posted total of 45, as per the online bookmaker Bodog Sports.
