Georgia Tech still alive for Coastal Division title

Rob Carr

The Jackets can claim the Coastal with some help from Miami.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets can still win the ACC's Coastal Division and could do so as early as this weekend. The Miami Hurricanes are tied with the Jackets for first, but Miami could potentially self-impose a bowl ban this season in an effort to lessen the harshness of impending NCAA sanctions.

That potential self-imposed ban would remove Miami from ACC championship contention, and in that case, Georgia Tech would simply need to beat Duke this weekend in order to secure the division. If Miami does not ban itself from the postseason, the Yellow Jackets must beat Duke and then hope Miami loses to the Blue Devils on Nov. 24.

Miami is expected to make a decision about its postseason fate after the team becomes bowl eligible, and it will become eligible with a win over South Florida on Saturday.

Miami defeated Georgia Tech 42-36 on Sept. 22. Since then, the Jackets are 3-3. Georgia Tech is 5-5 overall this season.
