Duke smashed Northwestern 41-17 and WFU wins big over BC 34-10. Both NW and BC should have good D’s and WFU offense was supposed to be averagish. Duke’s QB Daniel Jones looks really good early on.

How about Wake, 2-0 and putting up big points.  October is going to be a big test for them.

I was really impressed by Dukes win.  Solid performance.

I’m interested in Wake sneaking up on someone this year.  Syracuse looked bad.

I’m disappointed in Syracuse, that offense should drop a minimum of 40 points on MTSU. They have a good offense, I guess it just was not clicking on that day.

I had WFU winning at BC as they have a good young QB, along with a truly outstanding HC in Clawson. I hope a program like TN or Arkansas or TAM pick him up as he would be very good at a school like the Dirt Peckers.

Cutcliff is highly under-rated and has Duke about as good as anyone can make them.

Duke has a top notch QB…it makes a big difference. IMO Wake is the more well rounded team but Duke will have the best player on the field when they play and he is only a sophomore. Depth will kill them both when they play the bigger schools but both should have good years regardless. Coaching matters.

Wake and Duke are both 3-0 now. Wake could possibly have a better team than Lousville. FSU get’s to play both this year, not gonna be gimmies.
