2013 Football Schedule Announced
Duke's 12 opponents combined for a 2012 overall record of 74-78 (.487) while seven of the 11 FBS teams either posted a winning record or reached bowl eligibility. Only two ACC schools – Duke and Pittsburgh – will play 2013 schedules with all 12 opponents having won at least four games during the 2012 season.
Beginning with the Bull City Gridiron Classic against N.C. Central on August 31 at Wallace Wade Stadium, the Blue Devils will open the 2013 season with five home tilts in their first six games. Following the opener, Duke travels to meet Memphis and then plays consecutive home ACC contests against Georgia Tech (September 14) and Pittsburgh (September 21).
The Blue Devils close September by celebrating Homecoming on the 28th versus Troy. Following an open date on October 5, Duke plays its fourth and final non-league contest by entertaining Navy at Wallace Wade Stadium on October 12. Road games at Virginia (October 19) and Virginia Tech (October 26) round out the month of October.
After an open date on the first weekend of November, the Blue Devils close the season with home tilts against N.C. State (November 9) and Miami (November 16) and away contests at Wake Forest (November 23) and North Carolina (November 30).
Coming off last year's 6-7 campaign that included the program's first bowl appearance since 1994, Duke returns 46 lettermen for head coach David Cutcliffe's sixth squad. The Blue Devils open Spring Practice on Monday, March 4 and will host the program's annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 13 at Wallace Wade Stadium at 4 p.m.
