Desmond Howard, Lee Corso, and Kirk Herbstreit all pick #GaTech to win over Duke!— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
The same thing happened last week in South Bend.

Things started off well for the Jackets!
Duke starts moving well, then fumbles an option exchange and #GaTech recovers!!!— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
But then quickly started going downhill.
Long scoring drive by Duke makes it 7-3. Can the #GaTech offense respond?— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
The Blue Devils capitalize on a high long-snap to make it 13-3...... Not a great start #GTvsDUKE— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
You have to give Coach Cutcliffe credit for what he's accomplished at Duke.
Duke is an annoying team to play. Not a whole lot of talent, but discipline.— Charles Perkins III (@Cperk_21) September 26, 2015
Jeremy Cash is an All American football player and he's playing like it. #DukeFootball— Bryan Carter England (@bengland11) September 26, 2015
The odds were not in our favor after a poor first quarter.
Ga Tech down 19-3 to Duke. Under Paul Johnson (since '08) Tech is 1-25 in games when they trail by at least 14 pts at any point #GTvsDUKE— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 26, 2015
We sure hope so, Reggie. https://t.co/qssMvvItV5— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
But Georgia Tech was able to stay in the game with a TD late in the second quarter.
Ricky Jeune hell of a catch! May have found the playmaker we needed #TogetherWeSwarm— Reggie Ball (@TheReggieBall) September 26, 2015
Things seemed to be under control at halftime.
Butker with another long kick to make it 19-13!! #GTvsDUKE— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
Butker must have taken Coach's advice to heart....
After Butker's second kick, the Yellow Jackets were within striking distance... Unfortunately, DeVon Edwards had other plans.
But, the Jackets never quit.
Ricky Jeune playing like an NFL receiver today. Another big catch. #GTvsDUKE— Chris Yandle (@ChrisYandle) September 26, 2015
After a quick turnover, the Georgia Tech offense would go for it on 4th down again deep in Duke territory.
And we wouldn't find the end zone for the rest of the game.
Sometimes, the triple option unintentionally turns into a double option, and bad things happen. https://t.co/cjl6Ve3nP1— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 27, 2015
Duke scored touchdowns on offense today on drives of 12, 4, 1, and 4 plays. Only one of those went for more than 50 yards.— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
when you're hurt and can't play but forced to watch football all day— Qua Searcy (@Qua_Searcy82) September 27, 2015
Then, Duke sealed the deal.
Yeah. We know. https://t.co/fEs4U7WqJU— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
#GaTech averaged 2.9 yards per rush against Duke. That’s its worst output on the ground since 10/22/11 vs. Miami (2.79)— David Hale (@DavidHaleESPN) September 26, 2015
Tough loss just gotta keep pushing and have faith #TogetherWeSwarm— ¥A.D.G¥ (@Ampisdabest4) September 26, 2015
Two losses in a row... Just like last year -- still a lot of time for the Jackets to bounce back! #TogetherWeSwarm— From the Rumble Seat (@FTRSBlog) September 26, 2015
There's a lot of football left to play. Next, we get UNC on The Flats.
