A rainy day at UVa.

Georgia Tech (7-1, 5-1 ACC) took control in the second half with two backbreaking drives that broke open a close game and gave the Jackets a convincing 34-9 win over Virginia (3-4, 2-1 ACC) on Saturday in rain-soaked Charlottesville.

The loss dropped UVa. out of first place in the ACC Coastal.
