GAMETHREAD: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets @ Duke Blue Devils

Georgia Tech opens ACC play with a game against divisional foe Duke.

Spread: Georgia Tech (-9)

Radio: 106.7 FM in Atlanta, or this list if listening elsewhere.

The Blue Devils come in off of 2 straight wins over NC Central and Memphis, but face a tough test in ACC Coastal contender Georgia Tech. Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets have won two in a row, including a Sun Bowl matchup with USC, and have allowed as many points as they have accumulated interceptions over the last 10 quarters of play (7). The Duke offense will certainly provide Tech's defense with a greater challenge than Elon's offense did, and will foster a solid transition into ACC play. The Blue Devils will start Brandon Connette at QB in place of the injured Anthony Boone, while the Ramblin' Wreck will have both Vad Lee and Justin Thomas at their disposal.
