What to Know

After two games on the road, the Duke Blue Devils are heading back home. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 7:30 p.m. ET at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday. Notre Dame should still be riding high after a victory, while Duke will be looking to right the ship.

The Blue Devils suffered a bitter loss two weeks ago, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the North Carolina Tar Heels. It was a hard-fought game, but Duke had to settle for a 20-17 defeat against North Carolina. QB Quentin Harris wasn't much of a difference maker for Duke; despite two touchdowns, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball once.

Last week, Notre Dame turned the game against the Virginia Tech Hokies into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 447 yards to 236. The Fighting Irish won a contest that couldn't have been any closer, slipping by Virginia Tech 21-20. Notre Dame QB Ian Book was slinging it as he passed for 341 yards and two TDs on 53 attempts.

Duke is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Signs indicate that those betting on them against the spread won't find the odds much better since the team is 0-2-1 ATS when expected to lose.

Duke came out on top in a nail-biter against Notre Dame when the teams last met three seasons ago, sneaking past 38-35. Will the Blue Devils repeat their success, or do the Fighting Irish have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
