The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide hits the road for the first time as they visit Duke Saturday. It's a 2:30 p.m. kick on ABC. This is Alabama's first trip ever to Durham, NC.
Duke is 1-1. The Blue Devils beat Elon then lost in a shootout to Wake Forest 54-48.
Duke Coach David Cutcliffe is well aware of Alabama's ability.
“I have great respect for Alabama,” Cutcliffe said. “Great respect for who they are and what they've accomplished. But, I have concerns about Duke right now. I hope we can produce a major upset win. But whether it does or doesn't, I'm looking to play a really good football game. Not because of what it does for the program long term but what this team in 2010 needs to do.”
