Duke, Ga Tech still alive in ugly ACC Coastal race

Posted: Updated:

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Nobody saw this coming: Either Duke or Georgia Tech could win the ACC's Coastal Division title.

The Yellow Jackets became afterthoughts following their 2-4 start. And not much is ever expected from a Duke football program that hasn't had a winning season since 1994.

Yet they'll play this weekend in Atlanta in a game that's surprisingly significant in the muddy division race.

Duke (6-4, 3-3) will win the division if it beats both Georgia Tech (5-5, 4-3) and Miami. The Yellow Jackets will stay alive with a victory, but they'll need some help to claim a third title-game berth since 2006.

Duke defensive end Dezmond Johnson says outsiders thought his team's chances to get to Charlotte were "probably slim to none" before the season - yet here they are.
