Duke football finished the 2016 football season with a 4-8 record (1-7 in the ACC) and fell short of getting to a bowl game. It was a frustrating season with injuries to multiple players. However, Duke was able to win an epic rivalry game with North Carolina and bring the Victory Bell back to Durham.
This season, Duke football looks to bounce back and get to a bowl game. Once again, Duke has an exciting slate of home games. If you haven’t already, fans will want to renew or purchase season football tickets as this is shaping up to be an exciting season for Duke football. The Blue Devils have seven home games, which includes the following:
September 2nd vs. North Carolina Central
September 9th vs. Northwestern
September 16th vs. Baylor
September 29th vs. Miami (Friday night game)
October 14th vs. Florida State
October 21st vs. Pittsburgh
November 18th vs. Georgia Tech
As you can see from the schedule, the team will play its first three games at home. Duke welcomes Baylor to the home schedule this year for a game on September 16th and will play Miami in what should be an exciting Friday night home game on September 29th. Possible national championship contender Florida State will play at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday, October 14th. The following week, Duke will play at home against Pittsburgh, and the Blue Devils finish their home game slate with Georgia Tech on Saturday, November 18th.
The Blue Devils will also play road games at:
North Carolina (earlier rivalry game this year for the Victory Bell) – September 23rd
Virginia – October 7th
Virginia Tech – October 28th
Army – November 11th
Wake Forest – November 25th
There are several different season ticket packages fans can choose from that include box seats to general admission tickets. For the fan on a budget, Duke football has an amazing price of approx. $99 for a season ticket in the general admission section. That’s 7 home games for about $99. For about what you would pay for one general admission ticket to a Duke basketball game, you can get a season ticket to Duke football. I encourage fans to take advantage of this great opportunity to come out and support the program.
The home and away schedule will be action packed as Duke football looks to get back to another bowl game this season. I encourage Duke fans who are sitting on the fence to consider season tickets as 2017 will be exciting season.
