It’s an ACC showdown on Friday night at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina.
The Miami Hurricanes make the trip to take on the Duke Blue Devils. Both of these teams are undefeated and have a lot on the line in this game.
The Hurricanes have won the last three games played between the two teams. Last year Miami won the game by a final score of 40-21.
The Miami Hurricanes come into this game having only played two games because of a bye week and an extra bye week because of the Hurricane that hit Florida.
In the two games they have played though they have looked really impressive, winning both games in blowout fashion.
This game though will be the first big test for the team, and they should find out pretty quickly what kind of team they will have for the rest of the year.
The one big question mark coming into this game is about the defensive side of the ball. In their last game against the Toledo Rockets they gave up 30 points.
Now the offense for the Hurricanes put up 52 so it wasn’t a problem, but the fact they gave up that many points in that game has to be concerning.
On the offensive side of the ball the Hurricanes have a very balanced attack. So far on the year they are averaging 283 yards through the air and 288 yards on the ground.
To win this game the offense is going to need to be good, and the defense needs to be better in this game. They can’t let this game become a back and forth game or they could be upset.
Duke Blue Devils
On the other side of this match up is the Duke Blue Devils who also come into this game with a 4-0 record, including a victory in their last game over their rivals, the North Carolina Tar Heels. They have also covered the spread in all four of those games.
For the Blue Devils the offense end has been their strength so far this year. They come into this game averaging 40.5 points per game while putting up 471 yards.
Like the Hurricanes they have had a very balanced attack this year, and that has led them to a lot of success.
Still with the success so far this year, not many people think the Duke Blue Devils are for real. A win in this game would go a long ways to getting some national respect, and if they were to win this game they would probably move up into the top 25.

The Miami Hurricanes haven’t had a real test this year, and I think that hurt them early on in this game.

I think the Blue Devils will get out to a quick start, and although it won’t be enough I think it will be enough to cover the spread.
