Whenever people expect a shootout, that is always when you will get a defensive battle. And that is what we have today so far. Scott Blair kicked his second field goal of the day, this time from 43 yards, to give the Jackets a 6-3 lead over the Blue Devils.
Duke's next possession saw the best ball control of the day for the Blue Devils. The possession saw a major wrinkle introduced by Coach Cutcliffe, who brought in backup quarterback Brandon Connette to run the wildcat.
As soon as I typed in the "best ball control" line, Duke fumbled the ball on the 22 yard line giving the ball back to the Jackets.
Tech's offense still looks like it is trying to work out numerous kinks without Joshua Nesbitt running it. Anthony Allen, however, is having a big day, and already has 84 yards.
Scott Blair is doing all of the kicking for the Jackets today because of injuries to Sean Poole and Chandler Anderson, the two normal punters. His first kick was fairly impressive for a guy who hasn't done so yet this year, as he booted it 44 yards with no return.
