Duke (gasp!) Controls Its Own Destiny

Call it a pipe dream, but after Duke's 28-17 victory over Virginia earlier today, the Blue Devils now have a clear path to the ACC Championship Game.

True, said "clear" path is littered with Top-25 opponents Georgia Tech and Miami, not to mention a road test against rival North Carolina, but after Virginia Tech was upset by those same Tar Heels last Thursday, Duke now stands alone in second place in the ACC Coastal division with a 3-1 record.  The Yellow Jackets are in first with a 5-1 record, but the Blue Devils will host Georgia Tech on November 14th in Wallace Wade Stadium.  Thus, if Duke wins out it will, in fact, be the ACC Coastal Division Champion.

Yes, the odds are astronomical that Duke will be able to finish the season on a seven-game ACC winning streak, but for a team that last season won one ACC game, even the possibility of the Blue Devils being a player in the conference race must be uplifting to David Cutcliffe's team and to a suffering Blue Devil fan base.

So, Blue Devil fans, where do you see the newly energized Duke football team finishing in the ACC this year?
