NOTES

1. No changes from last week’s depth chart to Week Four’s. However, two starters - Lucas Patrick (LG) and Dezmond Johnson (DE) were unable to practice since sustaining injuries against Kansas and should be considered questionable for Saturday’s game against Tulane. Should neither be able to go, Duke would rotate Cody Robinson in at left guard with Kyler Brown moving in as the starting defensive end. A week ago both players acquitted themselves well in extended action.

2. The question of whether or not Davis Koppenhaver would play this year has been answered as he’s appeared in two games.

3. The Blue Devils surpassed the 30-point mark for the fourth straight game with 41 against Kansas. In the eight years before head coach David Cutcliffe took over, Duke turned in four campaigns with one game or fewer scoring 30 points, including not reaching 30 at all in 2004.

4. Despite setting a school single-game record for rushing yards on just 12 attempts last week, true freshman Shaun Wilson has not been upped on the depth chart. That shouldn’t be a surprise as Cutcliffe indicated that the Blue Devils would continue with the stable mentality in the back field, but also noted that Duke would re-evaluate how they get Wilson the ball in hopes of utilizing their new found weapon. Among all FBS freshmen, Wilson ranks fourth in rushing yards per game.

5. The Blue Devils have not allowed a punt return all season as all 11 of redshirt junior Will Monday’s punts have been downed or out of bounds (five), fair caught (four) or touchbacks (two).

6. Through the first three games of the season, Duke has registered seven sacks with 5.5 coming from the defensive line. A year ago, it took Duke five games to reach the seven-sack mark. The Blue Devils finished with five quarterback hur- ries against Kansas. The total is the second most since the start of the 2013 campaign, behind only nine at North Carolina on Nov. 30, 2013.
