RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Orwin Smith rushed for three touchdowns and No. 21 Georgia Tech beat North Carolina State 45-35 on Saturday to extend its best start in more than 20 years.

Smith finished with 74 yards and scored on runs of 13, 9 and 3 yards to help the Yellow Jackets (5-0, 2-0 ACC) open with five wins for the first time since their national championship season in 1990.

Georgia Tech led 21-0, briefly allowed N.C. State to make a game of it in the third quarter and pulled away with three touchdowns in a 2-minute, 22-second span of the fourth.

Mike Glennon was 20 of 29 for 163 yards with touchdown passes covering 9 yards to Jay Smith and 1 yard to Tyler Purvis. The Wolfpack (2-3, 0-2) remained winless against Bowl Subdivision teams.
