Duke and No. 16 Virginia Tech are trying to focus on the game and ignore the implications.
The Hokies (6-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are in contention for the Coastal Division title and a berth in the ACC championship game. But last season taught them to take games one at a time.
The Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2) are one victory away from a program first - consecutive bowl berths - but know that thinking about the prize instead of how they got to this point would be a mistake.
Virginia Tech has won six in a row. The Hokies are coming off a bye week that allowed them to get healthy.
Both teams also recall last season's game, in which Duke went ahead 20-0 before the Hokies gathered themselves for a 41-20 victory.
