ATLANTA (AP and RamblinWreck.com) - Robert Godhigh ran for two touchdowns, Georgia Tech's defense recorded a season-high five sacks and the Yellow Jackets beat Pittsburgh 21-10 on Saturday night.

Georgia Tech (6-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) had constant pressure on Pitt quarterback Tom Savage. Jeremiah Attaochu had two sacks and Jabari Hunt-Days had a sack and three tackles for losses in the Yellow Jackets' third straight win.

Pitt (4-4, 2-3 ACC) was held without a first down in the first quarter and managed only 55 total yards in the first half. Savage threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Tyler Boyd on the Panthers' first possession of the second half, cutting Georgia Tech's lead to 14-10.

Vad Lee's 42-yard pass to DeAndre Smelter set up Godhigh's second touchdown run, from 11 yards, with less than 3 minutes remaining.

David Sims had a touchdown run for Georgia Tech.

Lee completed 5 of 10 passes for 84 yards - with exactly half of the production coming on the late pass to Smelter. Lee had 17 carries for 44 yards.
