Fresh off their first bye week of the 2013 season, the Virginia Tech Hokies get back to work this Saturday when they welcome Duke into Lane Stadium.
The Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2 ACC) are coming off a big comeback win over Virginia in Charlottesville last weekend. It was the third straight win for the Blue Devils.
VT and the Dukies have played two common opponents thus far in the 2013 season: Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh. The Hokies beat them both, while the Devils lost both games. Duke actually gave up 58 points to Pitt, whereas VT allowed just nine points.
Tech owns a 13-7 advantage over Duke all-time. The Blue Devils last beat the Hokies in 1981 and VT has won all nine meetings since entering the ACC in 2004. The Hokies won last season's meeting, 41-20.
