DURHAM- Duke is scheduled to host its blue and white game at 6 p.m. Saturday at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium.
This will be the first chance football fans will have to see the Blue Devils in person under the head coach Mike Elko. Before heading to the stadium, fans are encouraged to come to campus early and enjoy a full day of fun with Duke Athletics, including baseball taking on Notre Dame at Jack Coombs Field at 12:00 p.m. and women’s lacrosse hosting the Boston College at 1 p.m. at the Koskinen stadium.
Saturday’s football game will feature Duke’s team split into two teams and will be played as a normal contest in terms of points, penalties, downs, etc. The aim is to run four 15-minute quarters with a 12-minute half, but there is potential for a running clock in the second half to ensure the game ends at 20. time
Fans who cannot attend the game in person can watch it live on the ACC Network.
After practice on Friday, Elko met with members of the media to provide his thoughts on the team ahead of Duke’s final spring training on Saturday. This interview can be viewed HERE.
