“They are really playing at a high level,” Hokies head coach Justin Fuente said about Duke. “They are cutting it loose and doing some great things. Offensively, they have a great mix of everything — there’s some option looks that they’ve obviously been working on and some spread looks as well. It’ll be a great challenge there. They’ve always been good on special teams and the return game, and defensively, they’re really getting after people and doing a great job.”
