The Duke Blue Devils will visit Mercedes-Benz Stadium to hound the Alabama Crimson Tide in Atlanta, Georgia for their regular season debut on Saturday. The Blue Devils fared with a 3-5 win/loss card in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) last season. Duke University football team will be replacing its Quarterback, Daniel Jones to Quentin Harris. Jones went to the Giants as New York’s first round pick. RB Deon Jackson will be its starting RB while Chris Taylor will be the target receiver in the game.

Harris is a skilled senior who has a total of 437 passing yards with a ratio of 7:1 in TD to INT, playing on limited time last year; Harris won both games he played in lieu of former injured QB Daniel Jones. Head Coach David Cutcliffe will have difficulty adjusting his defenders in the passing and running games as they lost their top tackler to the NFL. Duke had an average scoring percentage of 29.4 ppg landing at 64th place in the land while allowing rival teams to dump in at 27.2 points per game placing the team at 72nd overall.
