NOTES


1. The Blue Devils have no changes from the last week’s game against Syracuse, suggesting the injury report should be more/less clear come Thursday. However, Dezmond Johnson started against Syracuse at defensive end after Jonathan Jones was the starter for the previous five weeks.

2. Duke enters Saturday’s game with a 8-1 overall record and 4-1 mark in the ACC. The Blue Devils are 18-1 with Anthony Boone under center as the starting quarterback. With a 7-2 mark through nine games a year ago, it is the first time Duke has started 7-2 or better in consecutive seasons since a nine-year stretch from 1933-41.

3. After battling some bumps and bruises early in the season, Jamison Crowder has regained his all-conference form of late. He caught nine passes at Syracuse to increase his career total to 256. He enters this week’s game ranked second in ACC history for career receptions, only 27 catches behind former Blue Devil Conner Vernon. Crowder also has 14 career 100 yards games, tied for second most in program history (Clarkson Hines 17)

4. Similarly, the Blue Devils got a shot in the arm lat week from Issac Blakeney who tied his career high with two touchdown receptions and finished with a personal- best 94 receiving yards. His 54-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter was good for Duke’s longest pass play of the year.

5. Junior kicker Ross Martin is one of five FBS kickers without a field goal miss this season (13-of-13). Of the five, only Maryland’s Brad Craddock (14) has more field goal attempts than Martin’s 13.

6. MLB David Helton has made 39 tackles in the last three games, an average of 13.00 a contest. Helton leads Duke with 94 stops this season. He owns nine career games, all in the last two years, with 10 or more tackles.

7. In ACC games, Jeremy Cash is the only player to rank among the league’s top five in tackles per game (4th/9.40), passes defended per game (T-4th/1.20) and forced fumbles per game (1st/0.60).
