Washington and Yellow Jackets perfect so far

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington is delighted his team finally has a balanced offense.

The No. 21 Yellow Jackets lead the nation in total offense, rushing, scoring and - surprisingly - pass efficiency.

Hardly anyone expected Georgia Tech (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) to be much of a threat in the air this season after it finished 2010 ranked 113th in pass efficiency.

The Jackets' triple-option attack leads the nation in rushing for the second straight year, but their passing game is no longer an afterthought.

Coach Paul Johnson, whose team visits North Carolina State (2-2, 0-1) on Saturday, believes that Washington epitomizes the skills and spirit of the offense. Washington doesn't try to do too much, but excels in understanding and fulfilling his role.
