Duke @ Charlotte
Last Season Records: Charlotte 2-4; Duke 2-9
What to Know
The Duke Blue Devils and the Charlotte 49ers are opening their 2021 seasons against one another at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Jerry Richardson Stadium. Coming off of an uninspired 2-9 last-season record, Duke has set their aspirations higher this year. Likewise, last year was nothing to brag about for Charlotte (2-4), so the team is looking forward to a new start.
A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Few squads threw more interceptions than the Blue Devils, who were picked off 19 times. To make matters even worse for Duke, Charlotte threw only two interceptions last season, the fifth best among all teams in the nation.
Duke is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
