The Duke Blue Devils are travelling to Atlanta this week to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
These ACC foes have both had ups and downs this season, but this game could still have big implications within the conference. Both teams are coming off of bye weeks, but had tough matchups the week before.
Duke is coming off an impressive performance at Louisville in their last game.
Although they lost 24-14, they gave the 5th ranked Cardinals all they could handle for four quarters.
Georgia Tech is also coming off a tough battle two weeks ago, but it was the underdog Georgia Southern Eagles that gave them a run for their money.
Duke Blue Devils
The Blue Devils had the entire nation on the edge of their seats two weeks ago when they had the Louisville Cardinals on upset alert for most of the game.
Lamar Jackson scored the clinching touchdown with 1:32 left in the game, but it showed that Duke is no pushover.
They are the only team in the ACC Coastal without a conference win but are still very dangerous if not taken seriously. Notre Dame learned that a few weeks ago.
Quarterback Daniel Jones leads the Blue Devils passing attack with 1,584 yards along with nine touchdowns. He also has eight interceptions and a tendency to turn the ball over at the worst times.
Their 232.1 passing yards per game is 63rd in the nation.
The defense has kept them in most of the games so far.
Even against the high-powered offenses they have played, they are allowing only 21.9 points per game which is tied with Georgia Tech for 32nd.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Yellow Jackets surprised many people with how well they started this season. They began with a three-game winning streak including a 38-7 domination of SEC opponent Vanderbilt.
OK, Vandy isn’t the cream of the SEC crop, but they were favored in the game. Georgia Tech was brought back to Earth the following week in a 26-7 home loss to Clemson.
They lost the next two after but rebounded two weeks ago against Georgia Southern.
They may have had ups and downs this year, but the Ramblin’ Wreck offense is always fun to watch. It’s also difficult to prepare for.
The Georgia Tech option attack gains 234.3 rushing yards per game which is 22nd in the nation. Running back Dedrick Mills leads the team with 446 yards and nine touchdowns.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
Although you know what to expect from the Georgia Tech offense, it is still hard to stop. Duke will have their hands full, but they were able to hold the best offense in the country to 24 points to weeks ago. Both teams are coming off of byes, but Duke will probably benefit more.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Duke +8.5
The Blue Devils beat the Yellow Jackets last year 34-20 and held them to a season-low rushing yards. Even though they will be in a hostile environment, I think Duke will get their first ACC win this week.
