ATLANTA -- Tony Hollings rushed for 189 yards and three touchdowns before leaving with a knee injury, helping Georgia Tech rally past Brigham Young 28-19 Saturday in the first meeting between the schools.

Hollings scored his second TD with 13:08 left, giving the Yellow Jackets the lead for good. He left in the third, hurting his knee on a 2-yard run on the first drive of the half, then returned for the next series. But with Georgia Tech trying to run out the clock, Hollings again hurt the knee. He is expected to have an MRI on Monday.

A converted safety, Hollings entered as the nation's leading scorer, running for eight touchdowns in the first three games.

The Cougars had 197 yards in the first half, but were stymied by four turnovers. Tech's A.J. Suggs completed 11-of-26 for 117 yards and three interceptions.
