Duke travels to Memphis on Saturday, looking to open their season at 2-0 after a convincing 45-0 win in their season opener. The Tigers were idle last week, and host the Blue Devils in their season opener as they look to improve upon last season’s 4-8 finish.
To give us a scouting report on the Tigers, BDN welcomes back Phil Stukenborg, Memphis football reporter for The Commercial Appeal, where he has worked since 1983. He has written about high school, college and professional sports in the Mid-South, spending time as the beat writer for Ole Miss, Arkansas and the University of Memphis athletics. He was honored by the Memphis Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 2004 with its Contribution to Amateur Football Award and by the All-American Football Foundation in 2001 with the Jim Murray Outstanding Sportswriter Award. Thanks for joining us again, Phil!
