The Blue Devils will look to snap a two game losing streak on Saturday in Wallace Wade.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke could be in for another shootout this week.

Coming off a game in which they scored 55 points and lost, the Blue Devils look to bounce back Saturday when they play host to Troy.

The Trojans (2-2) have scored at least 34 points in three of their four games, and they've hit on five passes of at least 50 yards — one of only two teams to do that.

For the Blue Devils (2-2), that kind of quick-strike ability comes a week after they gave up an Atlantic Coast Conference-record-tying six touchdown passes in a 58-55 loss to Pittsburgh.

Troy quarterback Corey Robinson will try to become the latest player to light up the Blue Devils. They've allowed 10 touchdown passes in their past two games, both home losses.
