So much for the value of a win. After beating Duke, Georgia Tech fell in all four of the indices followed in this space after the Yellow Jackets’ 38-35 win over the Blue Devils.

Tech did receive two projections into the Belk Bowl, which is arguably the most prestigious (relatively speaking) bowl game that the Jackets have been named to.
