Alabama/Duke: Blue Devils no Match for ‘Bama
On the hardwood, ‘Bama/Duke wouldn’t be much of a discussion. The Blue Devils would certainly take Alabama to the cleaners and leave the bill at the door.
However, the contest at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday afternoon…is (unfortunately for Duke)…football.
The Duke offense is talented and the Blue Devils do offer some of the best receivers in the Atlantic Coast Conference and one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
However, the “best” Duke has to offer could be handled by the Alabama third-string defense.
Wallace Wade Stadium only holds 34,000 spectators, so extra seating will be added for the contest on Saturday afternoon.
The atmosphere should be outstanding and the crowd will be electric!
How many times does a school get the opportunity to play host to the No. 1 team in the nation? Not often.
The game certainly has an allure due to the fact the contest is at Duke, but the actual game…will be a debacle for the Blue Devils.
Duke will put a couple of scores on the board, but the Blue Devils simply don’t have the athleticism to contain Alabama for an entire game.
The Alabama offense will mince the Duke defense and the only question pertaining to this game…will be the point spread.
