DURHAM, N.C. – Kicking off with the annual Employee Appreciation Day when the Blue Devils host N.C. A&T on September 7, Duke has set its promotional themes for the 2019 season.

In week five, Duke will host its second home game, against Pittsburgh on October 5, for Iron Dukes Day and Durham Day.  One week later, the Blue Devils entertain Georgia Tech to celebrate Homecoming, Youth Sports Day, Scout Day, Cheer Day and Former Player Day. 

Duke’s home contest against Notre Dame on November 9 features Teacher Appreciation Day.  On November 16, Syracuse travels to face the Blue Devils for Military Appreciation Day.  The final home game of the regular season, a November 30 tilt with Miami, will serve as Senior Day.
