Seven total home dates and eight contests against 2019 bowl teams highlight the 2020 Duke football schedule released on Wednesday by the ACC office.
Duke opens its 2020 campaign hosting three straight home games when Middle Tennessee (Saturday, September 5), Elon (Saturday, September 12) and Charlotte (Thursday, September 17) come to Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium for non-conference matchups.
The Blue Devils close out the month of September with their first ACC contest at Pittsburgh on the 26th.
Duke remains in ACC action for its next three games when it hosts Wake Forest on October 3, before heading to nearby N.C. State for its second league-crossover game one week later. On October 17, the Blue Devils will play host to rival North Carolina.
Duke will have an open date on October 24 before traveling to South Bend, Ind., to face off against Notre Dame on Halloween (Saturday, October 31).
November begins with a road test at Georgia Tech on November 7, followed by back-to-back home contests against Virginia (Friday, November 13) and Virginia Tech (Saturday, November 21). The Blue Devils will close out the regular season on November 28 at Miami.
Season tickets will be available to the public soon.
