ATLANTA (AP) - Vad Lee ran for two touchdowns and added a long scoring pass, Zach Laskey ran for three touchdowns and Georgia Tech rolled to a surprising 56-0 rout of Syracuse on Saturday.

The blowout victory easily surpassed Georgia Tech's 49-10 win over Duke on Nov. 14, 2009 as the Yellow Jackets' biggest margin of victory in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Georgia Tech (4-3, 3-2 ACC) ended a three-game losing streak by compiling almost 500 total yards.

Syracuse (3-4, 1-2) also brought a .500 record into what was expected to be a competitive game. Instead, the game resembled Georgia Tech's 70-0 win over Elon, a FCS team, to open the season.

The Yellow Jackets took advantage of a blocked punt and three Syracuse turnovers for the runaway win.

Linebacker Quayshawn Nealy had an interception and fumble recovery to lead Georgia Tech's defense.
