Duke Returns to Conference Play After earning a 34-31 win at Navy last week, the Blue Devils return to ACC play this Saturday against Virginia at 12 noon in Wallace Wade Stadium. The Blue Devils have won the last two meetings with Virginia. The Cavaliers are coming off their first ACC win of the season, a 24-19 victory at home against Miami.
Duke vs. Virginia Saturday’s game will mark the 62nd on the gridiron between the two schools, with Virginia holding a 32-29 all-time series advantage. The first game in the series came on November 29, 1890 with Virginia posting a 10-4 victory in Richmond, Va. Duke’s most successful stretch against the Cavaliers came between 1952-78 when the Blue Devils posted an 18-4 record. Duke’s two straight victories over Virginia in 2008-09 mark the first back-to-back wins over the Cavaliers since 1981-82. The last time Duke defeated Virginia in three consecutive seasons came on the tail end of a five- game streak between 1974-78.

Following the go-ahead scoring strike, Duke added a seven-yard fumble return for a touchdown by nose guard Charlie Hatcher and a 43-yard field goal by kicker Will Snyderwine to account for the final margin.
