Duke (2-0, 0-0 ACC) at Baylor (2-0, 0-0 Big 12)
Saturday, September 15, 2018 • 3:30 PM • FS1
Waco, Texas • McLane Stadium (45,140 • Matrix Turf)

• Duke concludes a two-game road swing by travelling to Waco, Texas, to meet the Bears of Baylor ... Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET with television coverage from FS1
• Last week, Duke improved to 2-0 on the season with a 21-7 road win over Northwestern behind a defensive effort that yielded 4.0 quarterback sacks, two INTs & 14 QB pressures ... Entering the weekend, the Wildcats held the longest winning streak among Power 5 teams at nine victories in a row
• Duke joins Stanford as the only teams nationally to open the 2018 campaign with two victories versus 10-win squads from a season ago
• Saturday’s game will mark the third on the gridiron between Duke and Baylor ... The Blue Devils have won both prior meetings in 1958 (12-7 in Durham) and 2017 (34-20 in Durham)
• Dating back to the 2013 season, the Blue Devils are 36-22 (.621) in their last 58 regular season games
• Duke is 21-3 (.875) in its last 24 contests against non-ACC opponents
• Duke LBs Joe Giles-Harris and Ben Humphreys have 249 and 228 career tackles, respectively, to form the only active duo in the ACC with 200+ total stops each
• Duke S Dylan Singleton enters the Baylor game having recorded 10+ tackles in three consecutive games dating back to the 2017 Quick Lane Bowl
• Duke’s win at Northwestern proved costly on the injury front as both CB Mark Gilbert and QB Daniel Jones required surgery on Sunday ... Gilbert suffered a hip injury and will miss the remainder of the season while Jones endured a fractured clavicle and is out of action indefinitely
• Redshirt junior QB Quentin Harris takes over behind center this week, replacing injured QB Daniel Jones, who will have his streak of 27 straight starts snapped ... Harris has seen action in 13 career games as a reserve, completing nine-of-15 (.600) passes for 85 yards and one TD while rushing 39 times for 104 yards (2.67) and two scores
• Duke allowed a total of 21 points in the first two games of the season against Army West Point & Northwestern, marking the lowest combined total to open a campaign against FBS competition since 1971 when the Blue Devils held Florida (6) and South Carolina (12) to 18 combined points
• Last week versus Northwestern, the Blue Devil defense pushed its streak of consecutive fourth quarters without a point allowed to seven dating back to last season ... A year ago, Duke led the ACC and ranked fourth nationally in fewest points allowed per fourth quarter (3.46), trailing only Wisconsin, TCU and Alabama
• Elected by their teammates, four returning starters will serve as team captains for the 2018 campaign: LB Joe Giles-Harris, LB Ben Humphreys, QB Daniel Jones and WR Johnathan Lloyd
