Who’s Playing

Virginia Tech (home) vs. Duke (away)

Current Records: Virginia Tech 2-1-0; Duke 2-1-0

What to Know

Virginia Tech is 3-1 against Duke since 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Friday. Virginia Tech’s bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Duke at 7 p.m. ET at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field. The Hokies are expected to win — but not by much — so they will need to come into the contest prepared for a fight.

We saw a pretty high 64.5-point over/under line set for this one, but the actual score was more down to earth. Virginia Tech came out on top against Furman by a score of 24-17 two weeks ago. Virginia Tech’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of Tre Turner, who rushed for 68 yards and one touchdown on five carries, and Keshawn King, who picked up 119 yards on the ground on 12 carries.

Meanwhile, Duke wasn’t the first one on the board, but they got there more often. Everything went their way against Middle Tenn. as they made off with a 41-18 victory. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 31-3.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 2-1. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Virginia Tech and Duke clash.
