ATLANTA -- Charles Scott ran for three touchdowns and LSU took advantage of Georgia Tech's special teams mistakes in a surprisingly easy 38-3 victory win over the Yellow Jackets in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Wednesday night.
LSU outscored the No. 14 Yellow Jackets 28-0 in the second
quarter and led 35-3 at halftime. Scott, who had 65 yards rushing,
had two touchdowns in the decisive quarter.
A year after winning the national championship, LSU (8-5) lost
three of its last four regular-season games but regrouped for its
dominant bowl victory.
The biggest special teams plays all fell in LSU's favor. LSU
recovered an onside kick and a Georgia Tech fumbled punt return and
made a fourth-down stop on the Yellow Jackets' surprising fake punt
from Tech's 22.
LSU turned the fumbled punt and stop on the fake punt into quick
touchdowns while outscoring Georgia Tech 28-0 in the second
