Duke vs. Georgia Tech preview: Yellow Jackets go for 3rd win in a row

Rob Carr

The Jackets wrap up ACC play with the Blue Devils.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets host the Duke Blue Devils this week in a game that will help decide who eventually wins the ACC's Coastal division. The Jackets are tied for first with Miami at 4-3 in league play, and the Blue Devils are 3-3.

The Blue Devils close out their season with Miami, so if they managed to beat both Georgia Tech and the Hurricanes, they would claim the division title. The Yellow Jackets must beat Duke and hope Miami loses to USF in order to claim the division.

Georgia Tech opened as an 11 1/2-point favorite over Duke, though that line has since moved to Tech by 13.

The Jackets enter the week having won two games in a row, including Saturday's 68-50 victory at North Carolina. Georgia Tech ranks 26th nationally in total offense, fourth in rushing offense and 68th in total defense.

The Blue Devils have lost two in a row and three of four. Duke ranks 74th nationally in total offense and 96th in total defense.

Game Time & Date: 3:30 p.m. ET, Saturday
