GT win scrambles Coastal Division again

Ye Olde Dominion needed a Georgia Tech win to stay alive in the Coastal Division race. The Hokies and Hoos got it. The Yellow Jackets beat Miami 41-23 to keep five teams alive in the Coastal Division race.

Georgia Tech rushed for 472 yards, 128 by Jonathan Dwyer on just 10 carries, in the first half.

Defensive end Michael Johnson returned an intercpetion 26 yards for GT's first touchdown, a highlight that is guaranteed to be played 4 million times when the NFL Draft rolls around in April.

It all means if the Hokies win out, they win the Coastal for the third time in four years.

UNC still needs a loss by VT or UVa on Saturday just to stay alive.

Georgia Tech's 5-3 in the ACC but 2-3 in the division. The Jackets would lose any multi-team tie-breaker. They can only win the division if they are tied with only Miami or finish one game in front of the rest of the division.

If Virginia Tech wins out (Duke and UVa), the Hokies would control the most tie-breakers. They would win:

• A head-to-head with GT (beat GT)
• A three-way tie with GT and Miami (superior division record)
• A three-way tie with GT and UNC (2-0 group record)
• A four-way tie with Miami, GT, UNC (superior group record to GT and Miami, same group record as UNC, beat UNC)

If Virginia wins out (Clemson and at VT), the Cavaliers would win:

• A head-to-head with GT (beat GT)
• A four-way tie with GT, Miami and UNC (superior group record to Miami and GT, same group record as UNC, beat UNC)

If UNC wins out (State and at Duke), the Tar Heels would win:

• A head-to-head with GT (beat GT)
• A three-way tie with Miami and GT (2-0 group record)

If VT and UVA win on Saturday, UNC is eliminated.

If Miami beats N.C. State, the Canes would win:

• A three-way tie with UVa and GT (same division record as UVa, beat UVa)
