BYU too much for Jackets

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA -- Jamaal Williams scored four touchdowns, quarterback Riley Nelson accounted for two TDs and Brigham Young snapped a two-game losing streak with a 41-17 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Cougars (5-4) recovered from last week's three-point loss at No. 5 Notre Dame by holding Georgia Tech's triple-option attack without a rushing touchdown for the first time in two years and without an offensive touchdown for the first time since 2008.

Georgia Tech (3-5) has lost three of four. The Yellow Jackets' offense failed on all 10 of its third-down attempts while their defense was gouged for 411 yards.

BYU, which began the afternoon with the nation's fourth-ranked defense, finally got a break on the road after losing its last three away games by a combined seven points.

The Cougars never trailed after opening with a 17-play, 75-yard drive that ended with Williams converting a fourth-and-goal from the 6.
