Sims, Washington Help Georgia Tech Top Duke 38-31

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- David Sims rushed for two touchdowns, quarterback Tevin Washington added 136 yards rushing and a long, late scoring run, and Georgia Tech held on to beat Duke 38-31 Saturday.

Washington finished 6 of 13 for 185 yards passing and ran 39 yards for a late touchdown for the Yellow Jackets (8-3, 5-3 ACC).

They rolled up 549 total yards, scored on four straight possessions and held off Duke's late charge to win for just the second time in 1 1/2 months.

Sean Renfree matched a career high with four touchdown passes for the Blue Devils (3-8, 1-6). His 10-yard TD to Cooper Helfet -- his second of the day to the tight end -- pulled Duke within seven points with 6:37 left.

Duke forced a fumble from Charles Perkins and took over at its 34 with 3:44 left. Renfree's deep pass for Helfet was intercepted by Jamea Thomas with 2:20 left.
