Breaking News:

Byerly, Laskey lead White team to spring win

AP - Sports

ATLANTA (AP) -- Tim Byerly rushed for 101 yards and passed for 69 to help the White team beat the Gold team 20-12 in Georgia Tech's spring game Friday night.

With conditions hampered by a 40-degree wind chill and heavy rain falling throughout the scrimmage, Byerly played a part in five of the game's 13 fumbles.

Byerly, the Yellow Jackets' No. 2 quarterback, took all of the first-team snaps with starter Justin Thomas sidelined by a shoulder injury.

But coach Paul Johnson liked how Byerly, a junior, settled down the offense in the second half.

Zach Laskey, who rushed 12 times for 75 yards, ran for a 40-yard touchdown in the first quarter and helped set up Byerly's 1-yard TD run in the third quarter to make it 20-6.
