Boston College’s opener against Duke has a kickoff time according to a press release by the school. The Eagles will face off against the Blue Devils at noon on September 19th in Durham, North Carolina. This game will be played in an empty stadium, with no fans. ACC Regional Sports Networks will carry the game with detailed information on specific channel listings to be announced the week of the game.

This is the eighth matchup between the two schools, with BC holding a 4-3 series edge historically. However the Blue Devils have a two game winning streak against the Eagles. In 2015 Duke won an ugly 9-7 ugly battle in Durham. And in 2010, BC lost a 20-19 game in Chestnut Hill that was decided on an missed 23 yard field goal by Nate Freese in the waning seconds of the game. 

While this is the first game for the Eagles, this will be the second for Duke. They open the season on September 12th against Notre Dame.
