Game Facts

Duke facts

Duke has won nine straight games against non-conference opponents, breaking the old school record of eight set from 1931-33.

Running back Shaun Wilson rushed for a school single-game record 245 yards on just 12 carries, with three touchdowns, in the win over Kansas.

The Blue Devils have allowed just 33 points in three games, their lowest total through three games since 1994, when they also surrendered 33.

Duke’s 127 points in its first three games are its most since putting up 136 points in its first three contests in 1935.

The Blue Devils are one of four teams in the nation without a turnover and the only one of the four (Akron, Syracuse and Cincinnati are the others) to have already played three games.

Tulane facts

Tulane has forced at least two turnovers in its last 12 games.

Quarterback Tanner Lee has eight touchdown passes this season, just one off the school’s freshman record of nine set by Ryan Griffin in 2009.

Lee is the first Tulane quarterback to have three multiple-touchdown games in his first three career starts since Patrick Ramsey in 1999.

Running back Sherman Badie recorded his first career multiple-score game against Southeastern Louisiana, scoring on an 11-yard run and a three-yard reception.

The 58 yards rushing surrendered by the Green Wave last week was their lowest total allowed of the season.
