What kind of Duke team will show up?
Will it be the one that shocked Notre Dame, or will it be the one that couldn’t get the offense moving against Northwestern and Wake Forest?
The passing game has been fun at times, and the offense has had its moments, but against Army, all that matters is whether or not the Blue Devil defense can hold up. So far this year, it’s been more than good enough. Now it’s about to be challenged.
With two weeks off to prepare, Army has had a chance to rest up and recharge after a stunning loss to Buffalo to spoil an otherwise terrific start to the season. The offense has been dominant – averaging a nation-leading 375 yards per game on the ground – but the difference this season continues to be a defense that’s been shockingly amazing at swarming around the ball against the run, and decent enough at forcing turnovers to overcome the few mistakes on offense.
However, the Black Knights have yet to face an offense with any sort of a pulse.
Duke’s attack won’t light up the rested Army secondary, but it’ll come up with a few nice drives with QB Daniel Jones coming up with an effective performance. The big difference will be a Blue Devil defensive front that’s great at getting behind the line, and should handle the option attack just enough to come away with a desperately needed win.
