Georgia Tech Vs. Duke Final Score: Jackets Outgun Blue Devils, 38-31

Let's be honest. The average Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fan doesn't really care about the game that precedes the Georgia Bulldogs game, while the average Duke Blue Devils fan doesn't really care about football games. So let's get through this quickly. 

The Jackets outshot Duke, 38-31, to emerge from Wallace Wade Stadium with a victory and hang on to their respectable bowl standing. Tech moves to 8-3 on the year, an excellent mark for a team that was predicted to finish in the lower half of the Coastal Division.

Despite putting up 549 yards, almost 200 more than Duke, the Jackets turned the ball over twice and saw the Blue Devils match them pace-for-pace throughout much of the game. Tevin Washington is your offensive hero, putting up 136 yards rushing and 185 through the air.

Georgia Tech Vs. Duke Halftime Update: 4 Rushing TDs Give Yellow Jackets 28-14 Lead

Georgia Tech is taking care of business in Wallace Wade Stadium as four rushing touchdowns has given Paul Johnson's bunch a 28-14 lead over the Duke Blue Devils in Durham, North Carolina.

Duke jumped out to an early 7-0 lead as Sean Renfree connected with Conner Vernon for a 15 yard touchdown. Then Georgia Tech responded with 3 consecutive touchdowns, 2 of which coming from the legs of David Sims. After a Renfree  completed his second touchdown pass to Donovan Varner, cutting the lead to 21-14, Emery Peebles scored at the end of the first half for the two touchdown advantage. 

Tevin Washington is leading the way for the Yellow Jackets, as his 139 passing yards and 67 rushing yards have been crucial to Georgia Tech keeping possession thus far.

Georgia Tech will receive the bail in the second half, with a win they'll move their record to 8-3 and position themselves for a better bowl game. The Champs Sports Bowl maybe?
