Final Score: Duke 45 ECU 38

A close game that saw the Blue Devils fall behind early, but manage to fight back for a season opening victory. Despite high hopes early on it appears as though the defense isn't living up to the preseason hype. On the flip side, senior running back Cedric Dargan had a big day, running for 203 yards on 33 carries, while logging three touchdowns. Also, Jeremy Edwards returned an interception and a kickoff for touchdowns.

Next Game: #18 Virginia Tech(0-1) @ Duke(1-0)
