NOTES

1. Only one change from Week 2 to Week 3, but it's a pretty big one. Starting QB Anthony Boone uffered a broken collarbone in Duke's week two win against Memphis and is out indefinitely. Boone has completed 27-of-36 passes for 275 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception while rushing eight times for 47 yards and two touchdowns prior to the injury. Fourth year junior Brandon Connette will step into the starter's role, while true freshman Parker Boehme will be the backup. Boehme will likely burn his redshirt.

2. Despite the departure of seniors Desmond Scott and Conner Vernon, Duke has significant depth at the WR position. At least five different WRs have caught a pass in each of Duke's first two games.

3. It took six quarters for Duke to allow its first sack of the 2013 season. Through two games and 68 pass attempts, Duke has allowed three sacks for an average of 22.7 pass attempts between sacks.

4. A major difference in Duke's linebacker production this season has been the return of redshirt junior Kelby Brown, who missed the entire 2012 season while recovering from knee surgery. Brown has aver- aged 6.8 tackles per game during his Duke career and logged back-to-back seasons with 60+ tackles prior to the 2012 knee injury. Brown is slated atop the depth chart at the Mike spot.

5. Duke has two redshirt senior cornerbacks atop the depth chart — Ross Cockrell and Garett Pat- terson — but two true freshmen behind each of them. Backing up Cockrell is Breon Borders, while Patterson's backup is Bryon Fields. Borders and Fields played extensively in Duke's season opener and defended two passes each. Borders grabbed his first career interception at the end of regulation and also recorded a PBU, while Fields recorded two PBUs. Borders played 32 snaps, while Fields played 27.
