    And those reasons are? Just curious what causes the mass exodus at halftime.

    I have to laugh that students leave THESE games. I sat through every single game- including tons of away games- partly during the Caldwell era when we would cheer like crazy for a first down. I know that sounds like “I walked ten miles to school in the snow,” but honestly, you can go watch big time college football in prime seats for free. WTF is the problem with these students?!

    If the Team left in the second half there goes the perfect record. In recent years many students at WF have not seen any relationship between their personal support for the team and the commitment of the players. This year has been better.

    It doesn't make sense to me either (now I sound like the I walked 10 miles in the snow ). Different priorities for students these days and not unique to Wake Forest.

    Funny. I don't think advocacy by fans for personal support of the team has much to do with some old guy falsely claiming to have walked 10 miles to school. Just sayin.

    When was the last time you attended a Wake football game at home?

    This isn’t that recent a phenomenon. Students have left games early for social events for at least 20 years. Surely more than that.

    I live in Cincinnati so it's been about 8 years or so.

    This.

    I am also looking for two Duke tix. My mom and dad (class of 1960) are coming for homecoming, he says he'll just scalp a couple outside the stadium but I'd like to hook them up with decent seats (better than what's left via our ticket office) beforehand if possible.

    GAME NOTES FROM THE DUUUKIES

    DURHAM – Duke heads back on the road to Winston-Salem, N.C., for a showdown with No. 13 Wake Forest at Truist Field.

    Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. and the game will be broadcast live on ACC Network.

    Duke leads the all-time series between the two schools, 58-40-2. In the last meeting on Nov. 23, 2019, the Blue Devils fell, 39-27, to the Demon Deacons. Duke's last win over Wake Forest came on Nov. 25, 2017, when Daniel Jones threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as Duke earned bowl eligibility by beating the Demon Deacons, 31-23, in Winston-Salem, N.C.

    Saturday's ACCN broadcast will feature Wes Durham, Roddy Jones, and Taylor Davis on the call. The game can also be heard on the Blue Devil Sports Network from LEARFIELD through the Varsity app or goduke.com

    GAME NOTES
    After seven games, senior running back Mataeo Durant finds himself atop the league charts in numerous categories. Most notably, he ranks second in rushing attempts (166), total touchdowns by a running back (9), rushing yards (870) and all-purpose yards per game (150.00).

    Durant continues to climb up the Blue Devils' all-time rushing chart. Thanks to his 82 yards against Virginia on Oct. 16, he is currently eighth on Duke's all-time list with 2,191 yards and is 250 away from breaking into the top five.

    Redshirt junior linebacker Shaka Heyward currently sits tied for 10th in the ACC with 60 tackles. He has two double-digit tackle games this year and has led Duke in tackles in three of seven contests.

    Duke is one of three ACC schools with multiple players with 480+ receiving yards. Jake Bobo (552) and Jalon Calhoun (481) join Virginia's Dontayvion Wicks (847), Keytaon Thompson (555) and Billy Kemp (541) as well as Wake Forest's Jaquarii Roberson (807) and A.T. Perry (625).

    FACING WAKE FOREST IN NOVEMBER
    During the David Cutcliffe era, most of Duke's meetings with cross-division rival Wake Forest have come in the month of November. Saturday's contest will mark the ninth time the Blue Devils and Demon Deacons have battle in this particular month. Of the other four meetings, three were played in September and one in October. The two programs did not meet in 2020.

    BOBO BIG UNDER PRESSURE
    Senior wide receiver Jake Bobo has become Duke's top target for extending drives. the North Andover, Mass., native had 32 catches in 2020, with 22 of those going for a first down. Bobo has continued that trend in Duke's seven games of 2021. 27 of his 49 receptions have earned a first down.

    Of his 49 receptions on the year:
    ** 27 have earned a first down
    ** Three have gone for nine yards
    ** 18 have gone for eight-or-less yards
    ** One went for 11 but missed a first down due to a false start on previous play

    Bobo currently leads the Blue Devils with 552 receiving yards on 49 catches. His 49 receptions have him third in the ACC and tied for 16th in the country, while his receiving yards place him seventh in the league and tied for 40th in the nation.

    DUKE'S QB1
    Graduate student quarterback Gunnar Holmberg made his first collegiate start against Charlotte earlier this year. In his seven games as Duke's starter, Holmberg has completed 152-of-216 (.704) passes for 1,750 yards with six touchdowns. The Wake Forest, N.C., native leads the ACC in pass completion percentage and has added 38 completions of 15+ yards, including a season-long 80-yard touchdown connection with Jalon Calhoun against North Carolina on Oct. 2.

    Holmberg is first in the ACC in passing completion percentage with a mark of .704 and fourth in pass completions. He is also sixth in total offense with 1,927 yards (177 rushing, 1,750 passing) and seventh in passing yards per game (250.00). His 24 points scored against Kansas are the second most in the ACC this season, trailing a 30-point performance by Syracuse's Sean Tucker against Albany.

    LEADER OF THE RUN GAME
    Senior Mataeo Durant has accumulated 870 rushing yards on 166 attempts with nine touchdowns in Duke's seven games. Nationally, the Plum Branch, S.C., native is fourth in rushing yards per game (124.28), tied for fifth in rushing attempts, sixth in rushing yards, tied for 18th in rushing touchdowns, and tied for 30th in total points scored (60). Durant is one of five players in program history to record nine or more career 100-yard rushing games. He is the first Blue Devil to achieve the mark since Chris Douglas did so from 2001-03.

    ACC LEADERS AMONG TACKLES
    Duke is one of six schools in the ACC with multiple players with 50-plus tackles on the year, joining Georgia Tech (four), Virginia (three), Virginia Tech (three), Louisville (two) and Syracuse (two). Redshirt junior linebacker Shaka Heyward is tied for 10th in the conference with 60 tackles on the year, while redshirt senior safety Lummie Young IV sits 19th with 51.

    INTERCEPTIONS
    Duke accumulated nine interceptions last season and the Blue Devils are looking to continue that trend in 2021. In eight of the last nine seasons, Duke has earned nine-plus interceptions, with its lone blip on the radar being the 2018 season (4). During that stretch, the Blue Devils recorded six years with double digit picks, including an impressive 18 in 2013.

    Duke currently has seven picks on the year and has registered multiple interceptions on three occasions this season (Georgia Tech, 2; Kansas, 2; Northwestern, 2). Leonard Johnson and Jeremiah Lewis lead the team with two on the year, while Shaka Heyward, Nate Thompson and Lummie Young IV have accounted for the other three picks.

    FORCING PRESSURE
    Redshirt sophomore DeWayne Carter is currently tied for first in the nation with Texas State's Issiah Nixon and UCLA's Mitchell Agude with four forced fumbles on the year.

    The Blue Devils have now had a player register three-plus caused fumbles in a single season in five of the last 10 years. DeVon Edwards led the group during that stretch with five in 2014.

    Where did they get their stats? Roberson and Perry’s stats are wrong.

    You know Clawson wants to drop 50+ on Duke this weekend. He ain't taking the foot off the gas in the 4th if its a blowout. Can't wait.
