College football schedule 2012: Georgia Tech faces crucial ACC game

Rob Carr

Georgia Tech will try to stay in the ACC Coastal race Saturday against Duke.

Georgia Tech meets the Duke Blue Devils Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets must win to stay alive in the ACC Coastal Division race.

Georgia Tech (5-5, 4-3 ACC) is tied with Miami atop the Coastal Division, but the Hurricanes hold the head-to-head tiebreaker thanks to a 42-36 win over the Yellow Jackets on Sept. 22. Tech must defeat Duke this week and have the Blue Devils beat Miami next week to win the division title. Should the Blue Devils win their next two games, they will advance to the ACC Championship Game.

Fresh off clinching the SEC Eastern Division title, Georgia (9-1, 7-1 SEC) hosts Georgia Southern Saturday at Sanford Stadium in Athens. The Bulldogs locked up a spot in the SEC Championship Game with a 38-0 win over Auburn last week. The Eagles (8-2, 6-2 SoCon) have already wrapped up the Southern Conference title and will advance to the FCS playoffs following the regular season.

Saturday, Nov. 17 (all times listed are Eastern)

Duke Blue Devils at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 3:30 p.m., ESPNU
