What to Know

After a two-game homestand, the Northwestern Wildcats will be on the road. They will take on the Duke Blue Devils at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium. Northwestern is expected to win -- but not by much -- so they will need to come into the matchup prepared for a fight.

The Wildcats didn't have too much trouble with the Indiana State Sycamores at home last week as they won 24-6.

Meanwhile, everything went Duke's way against the North Carolina A&T Aggies last Friday as they made off with a 45-17 win. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Duke had established a 42-17 advantage. Duke QB Gunnar Holmberg was slinging it as he accumulated 270 passing yards in addition to rushing for two TDs and 30 yards.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-1. Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
