Tech Bedevils Duke 27-0

GO JACKETS!On Saturday afternoon, the Duke Blue Devils (3-1) took to Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field (the oldest active stadium in Div-1 football) with hopes of defeating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-1). What occurred was a thrashing that they will not soon forget!

Duke had no answers for a Tech defense that pitched another shutout (with sophomore DE Derrick Morgan recording another sack) and a Tech offense that picked up steam in the second half (with freshman QB Jaybo Shaw passing 230 yards - all to one receiver in 9 catches). Tech went into the locker room with a slim 3-0 lead, but they came out breathing fire in the second half, piling up another 24 points until the Blue Devils whimpered, "UNCLE!"

The SugarPlum and I (sans plezWife) enjoyed the spectacle of Tech's superiority on the gridiron under the warm October sun... and we even mingled with the Tech Cheerleaders and Gold Rush dancers at my fraternity brothers' tailgate party before and after the game.
