We are less than a month away from Duke football kicking off the season against Army on Friday, August 31, in a game that will be aired on ESPNU.
Duke finished the 2017-2018 season on a roller coaster ride with a 7-6 record, winning the rivalry game against North Carolina to bring the Victory Bell back to Durham. The Blue Devils also finished the season with a bowl win against Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl.
This season, Duke looks to continue its success and get back to another bowl game. Once again, the team 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 the program.

The Blue Devils have six home games, including the following:
- Army West Point – August 31
- North Carolina Central – September 22
- Virginia Tech – September 29
- Virginia – October 20
- North Carolina – November 10
- Wake Forest – November 24
A few highlights from the home schedule include opening the season with a Friday night contest against Army on Labor Day Weekend, as well as a visit from Virginia Tech on September 29 in a game that could be crucial in determining the winner of the ACC Coastal Division.
The Blue Devils will also try to retain the Victory Bell when they host North Carolina on November 10. Like many fans, I’m glad to see this rivalry game moved back to a later date in the season. The team will close out the home slate against Wake Forest for senior day on November 24.
The Blue Devils will also play the following road games:
- Northwestern – September 8
- Baylor – September 15
- Georgia Tech – October 13
- Pittsburgh – October 27
- Miami – November 3
- Clemson – November 17
There are several different season ticket packages fans can choose from that include reserved seats to general admission tickets. For the fan on a budget, there’s a package with an amazing price of approx. $87 for a season ticket in the general admission section. That’s 6 home games for about $87. 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 continue its success and win another bowl game this season. I encourage Duke fans who are sitting on the fence to consider season tickets as 2018 should be an exciting year.
