Recap


Georgia Tech 42, Duke 24: Tevin Washington tied his career high with three touchdown passes and ran for another as host Yellow Jackets kept their ACC Coastal Division title hopes alive.

Robert Godhigh had two scoring receptions and David Sims and Vad Lee ran for touchdowns as Georgia Tech (6-5, 5-3 ACC) won its third straight game and beat the Blue Devils (6-5, 3-4) for the ninth consecutive time.

The Yellow Jackets made it 35-24 with an 8 1/2-minute, 18-play drive that featured all runs until Washington found Godhigh with an 8-yard scoring pass with 10:17 to play.
