The Yellow Jackets are seeking another offensive outburst against Duke.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have a huge contest on Saturday against the Duke Blue Devils. With a win, Paul Johnson's team will become bowl-eligible and likely get a pretty decent game.

After beating the North Carolina Tar Heels 68-50 in its last contest, Georgia Tech is looking to keep the good times rolling against a solid Duke team.

Much of that falls on quarterback Vad Lee, who threw for 169 yards last week and rushed for another 112. Lee hasn't been perfect, but he's certainly getting the job done. Surprisingly, not everyone was overly excited about scoring 68 points against North Carolina. In fact, many were somewhat upset, including Lee, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who said "I definitely feel like I can get a lot better."

Offensive line coach Mike Sewak also thinks his line can play better. Sewak even believes the offense was more efficient against the Maryland Terrapins, despite scoring only 33 points in that game. Per AJC:

"I think that they played better two weeks ago (against Maryland) than they did last week. I think last week they played hard, but they weren’t as fundamentally sound as they were (against Maryland) and their grades were indicative of it."
