DURHAM, NC - Georgia Tech could have been playing for a division title. Duke could have been playing for its first bowl game in quite a while.
Those goals are gone, yet both teams insist there's still plenty to play for when they meet Saturday.
For the Yellow Jackets (7-3, 4-3), it's a chance to beat up on one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's worst teams before facing a hated instate rival.
For the Blue Devils (3-7, 1-5), the only thing on the line is pride.
Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell says his team isn't going to give up just because it has clinched its 17th straight losing season.
