The Golden Bear caught 30 catches for 369 and two touchdowns over eight games. His dual-threat ability makes it a nightmare to gameplan against him.

Middle Tennessee has the offense to keep this interesting at home and bother a Duke team with just enough issues to keep this from being a foregone conclusion. The Blue Devil offense will be too balanced and too effective against the struggling Blue Raider D over the second half to blow this. Expect a little bit of a shootout.
