Friday nights are normally reserved for high school football, but Virginia Tech and Duke hog the attention on this evening, as the two Coastal Division foes square off at Lane Stadium in an important matchup.

The game serves as Duke’s ACC opener, while the Hokies desperately want to avoid being 0-2 in league play with a road trip to Miami looming.

“They are really playing at a high level,” Tech head coach Justin Fuente said of Duke. “They are cutting it loose and doing some great things. Offensively, they have a great mix of everything — there’s some option looks that they’ve obviously been working on and some spread looks as well. It’ll be a great challenge there. They’ve always been good on special teams and the return game, and defensively, they’re really getting after people and doing a great job.”

Pregame coverage begins at 5:30 PM on 103.3 FM WESR and kick off is set for 7:00 PM.
