It’s an FBS power five conference showdown on Saturday afternoon at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina. The struggling Baylor Bears make the trip to take on the Duke Blue Devils.
This team only faced off once in 1958 and the Blue Devils came out on top by a final score of 12-7
The Matt Rhule era has gotten off to a terrible start so far for the Baylor Bears. The Bears have played two non power five conference teams, and each game they lost.
In week one they lost in a shootout to Liberty 48-45. But week two was much different playing a much slower paced low scoring game.
They couldn’t seem to get anything going offensively and that led to 17-10 defeat to the University of Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners.
One of the biggest issues in week two was the quarterback play. Anu Solomon couldn’t get much of anything going and only threw for 121 yards and one touchdown and one interception.
If the Bears want to win this game two things need to happen. They can’t let this game turn into a shootout and the offense needs to be better.
Now that doesn’t mean the Bears need to score 35 points, but they do need to do a lot better then ten.
Duke Blue Devils
On the other side of this match up is the Duke Blue Devils who have had a really nice start to their season. After a big win in week one they came in as underdogs against the Northwestern Wildcats.
The offense got going early and that led to a 41-17 victory which was a shocking score across the college football world.
This was supposed to be an up year for the Wildcats and a down year for the Blue Devils, so the fact they came out on top was quite impressive.
The Blue Devils have seemed to find someone in Sophomore quarterback Daniel Jones who has been excellent so far.
Against the Wildcats he threw for 305 and two touchdowns and an interception. If he can keep up that type of play this could be a special season for the Blue Devils.
