ATLANTA, GA (AP) - Orwin Smith had more than 100 yards rushing and receiving, and Georgia Tech piled up a school-record 768 yards in a 66-24 rout of Kansas on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (3-0) avenged a 28-25 upset loss to the Jayhawks (2-1) last season, running at will and working in three long passes against a team that looked as though it had never seen the option offense.

Georgia Tech also set a school record with 604 yards on the ground in its highest-scoring game since a 69-14 win over Samford in 2007. Roddy Jones also scored running and receiving, while David Sims had a pair of rushing TDs.

Losing its 10th straight road game, Kansas gave up three one-play scoring drives to the Yellow Jackets, including their first offensive snap of each half.
