TV coverage: Saturday ESPN 9pm (gameday in town at 8:30AM!)
Vegas Line: Duke-4.5, O/U=142
Good enough win that chopped Wake Forest down to size on national TV on Tuesday night down in Winston Salem. I’ll take it, click my heels and move immediately on to the game of the freakin’ year!
We got the bounce-back “dub-ah-u” out on the A.C.C. road and we got home safely and with no major injuries.

This one is a hot ticket folks! No, make that a hawt tix; the first truly sizzling hawt tix since we hosted #2 U.N.C. way back in 2009. To borrow on Huggy-Bear in the Starsky and Hutch 2004 remake; that’s a little over 700 days if you are keeping score at home since you have to “know somebody who knows somebody who robbed somebody” just to get in.
This one is big.
