ATLANTA - There's nothing Georgia Tech loves more than to spring a big play out of the triple-option.
You know the drill. The quarterback pitches the ball at just the right time, and a teammate is off to the end zone. Or a receiver breaks free behind the secondary, which is so focused on stopping the run that it forgets to cover that guy running down the middle of the field.
Those plays happened with amazing frequency through the first three games. But the No. 12 Yellow Jackets have found it tougher to strike quickly the last three weeks.
Georgia Tech (6-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) is coming off a lackluster 21-16 victory over Maryland, which held the Yellow Jackets to a season-low 386 yards.
Georgia Tech plays at Virginia Saturday.
