Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) – Thomas Sirk rushed for two short touchdowns
and Duke beat Georgia Tech for the first time in 11 years, holding off the No.
22 Yellow Jackets 31-25 on Saturday.
The Blue Devils (5-1, 1-1 ACC) showed no rust after a thunderstorm sent the
teams back inside for a 77-minute delay after halftime. They scored the only
10 points in the third quarter to build a 24-12 lead.
The Yellow Jackets (5-1, 2-1) had won 10 in a row in the series since a 41-17
loss in 2003. They were trying to match the 2011 team’s 6-0 record — the only
time the program has hit that mark in 48 years.
