Justin Thomas threw three touchdown passes, Synjyn Days ran for a career-high 147 yards and Georgia Tech beat Virginia 35-10 on Saturday in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Days scored on a 4-yard run in the third quarter and caught a 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

Days has topped 100 yards rushing in each of his two starts while running back Zach Laskey recovers from a shoulder injury. Days set a career high with 110 yards rushing in last week's 56-28 win at Pittsburgh and then topped that total on 24 carries against the Cavaliers.

Georgia Tech (7-2, 4-2) couldn't gain ground on ACC Coastal Division leader Duke, which beat Pittsburgh 51-48 in double-overtime on Saturday. Duke beat Georgia Tech earlier this season.

Virginia (4-5, 2-3), held to a season-low 22 yards rushing, has lost three straight.
