Duke football looks to finish season strong at home

Game 10: Virginia Tech Hokies

Another game where the opposition has a new head coach.

Duke and Virginia Tech have had some fierce battles over the years and expect another tight one that could go either way.

Game 11: at Pittsburgh Panthers

Another team that like Virginia, has given Duke fits.

Duke has beaten the Panthers only once since they joined the ACC in 2013 and almost none of the games that Duke has lost have been close.

Facing the defending ACC champs, albeit an unlikely one, is a game that Duke fans will have circled on their calendar.

Game 12: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

The Student vs. Teacher battle.

This is a game where Coach Elko would love nothing more than to stick it to his former boss, Dave Clawson of Wake Forest.

Duke will be fired up knowing that it’s Senior Day in Durham and would want to walk out with a win against a Tobacco Road rival.
