TV: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Virginia Tech -2.5

ABOUT DUKE (2-1, 0-0 ACC): Harris, who had a career-long 65-yard run against the Blue Raiders, also threw four TD passes in a 45-13 victory over North Carolina A&T after completing 12-of-22 for 97 yards with two interceptions in a 42-3 loss at No. 2 Alabama in the season opener. Harris is completing 72.5 percent of his 91 passes for 679 yards, and leads the team in rushing with 204 yards and six yards per carry, while Deon Jackson has added 177 yards and 3.9 per tote. Senior safety Dylan Singleton, the Devils' leading returning tackler (73), has led the team in tackles in all three games and has 28 for the season to go along with a fumble recovery and 1.5 tackles for loss.

ABOUT VIRGINIA TECH (2-1, 0-1): Quarterback Ryan Willis (62-of-96, 739 yards, 7 touchdowns) has gotten off to a shaky start, throwing four interceptions and losing a fumble, and fans even applauded loudly when he was replaced by Herndon Hooker for a few minutes against Furman. "Playing the position poorly is not very fun. I know it because I've done it - a lot," Hokies coach Justin Fuente, who set 11 records at Murray State after two seasons at Oklahoma, told reporters. "But it can also fuel your fire and desire to improve and find a way to play it well. ... I think he's done a good job of trying to stay focused on the task at hand. It's a difficult job it's a difficult position. He understands that." Keshawn King rushed for 119 yards in his first collegiate start against the Paladins, including a 54-yard run, to become the first freshman running back with 100 yards in a game since J.C. Coleman had 183 in 2012 against Duke.
