Atlanta, Ga--While Georgia and Clemson enjoy the Saturday off, and probably much needed for both teams, that leaves South Carolina and Georgia Tech to carry the area banner. How bout some big props to the Rambling Wreck who are quickly becoming a player in the A.C.C.
Duke rolls into Atlanta Saturday hoping to slow down what has become an offensive machine with the new option attack. Led by Josh Nesbitt and Jonathan Dwyer, Tech ran for nearly 500 yards in their last game and are fifth in the nation in that category. What may be even more impressive, of the 15 touchdowns they've scored, 14 of them are by Freshmen and Sophomores. Yes, things are going well, but they know they better not get caught looking ahead.
"Better take care of your business at home. It's a conference game and it's a team that's three and one that's coming in. That's more then enough for us to worry about, its them. When you start looking ahead, you'll be looking back in misery." said coach Paul Johnson.
Quarterback Josh Nesbitt does have a hamstring injury and Johnson is optimistic he'll be able to go sunday against the Blue Devils. Duke is also 3 and 1 overall so they may not be the pushover people might think.
