Duke, Georgia Tech trying to remain in ACC chase

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Duke and Georgia Tech will report to Bobby Dodd Stadium as flawed but grateful teams.

After Saturday's game, one of the two teams will still have a shot at playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.

Duke (6-4, 3-3 ACC) is coming off losses to Florida State and Clemson by the combined margin of 77 points. Even so, the Blue Devils control their fate in the ACC's Coastal Division race. If Duke wins Saturday and beats Miami next week, it will play in the Dec. 1 ACC championship game.

Georgia Tech (5-5, 4-3) has won two straight to re-emerge as a contender despite continued poor defense. The Yellow Jackets have allowed more than 40 points in five games, including last week's wild 68-50 win at North Carolina.
