The Duke Blue Devils are looking for yet another statement win on the opening weeks of the season as they head into Northwestern to take on the Wildcats.
As for the Northwestern Wildcats, it was an statement win for them as they took a road game win against the Purdue Boilermakers. Now it is time for their home opener.
Duke Blue Devils
The Duke Blue Devils are looking to keep their season on the hot side as they are coming off a spicy win against the Army Black Knights in the opening week. Now they are looking forward to their first road win this season against the Northwestern Wildcats. What we say in their win against the Black Knights was the amount of points they can slap on the scoreboard in the last quarters.
The Devils took some time to get settled into the game, as they finished the game with scoring over 30 points in the past quarters. It was a remarkable finish towards the end of the game as the Devils look to keep it going against the Wildcats.
However the Blue Devils come into this game losing the past three of four road games. They have not been the best road team in the past years as they have averaged a total of 16 points per game in the past two years on the road.
The Northwestern Wildcats had one of the best opening weeks in past years as they went on the road and took care of the Purdue Boilermakers with the final score being 31-27. This is going to be a huge statement game for the Wildcats as they are on the verge of going 2-0. One of those reasons is due to the stacked defense and running game going for the Wildcats.
Let’s start with the running game as the main back of Jeremy Larkin led the way with 143 rushing yards in the win. In total, the Wildcats would finish the game off with 166 rushing yards.
The biggest key in this game will come down to the defensive front as Northwestern as the defense to separate itself. In the huge win against the Boilermakers, the defense had a total of three interceptions and four sacks, as they have the potential to match it against a weak offensive line of Duke.
