Kickoff time for Duke game is ... 12:20 p.m.

Georgia Tech will play yet another noon-hour game against Duke on October 13 at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Since the start of the 2016 season, it will be the 11th Saturday home game out of 13 that the Yellow Jackets will play in the noon hour.

The game will be broadcast by Raycom Sports. The affiliates have yet to be announced, but it will likely be CW69 in Atlanta.

Tech fans have been disgruntled by the repeated early-game assignments as they shorten the time that they can tailgate. The weather also is typically less tolerable. The kickoff time for the Duke game throws another wrench at Tech and its fans.

The Duke game will serve as Tech’s homecoming, so the 12:20 p.m. kickoff will compact the institute’s activities for the day into a much smaller window.
