Let’s hear it for the blue bloods. Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina. No no. Not in that sport. The four schools may have 23 national basketball championships, but it’s not March.
He is No. 17 Duke To Real Madrid? Let’s see what happens on Saturday, because look who’s coming to Durham. Yes, yes, Notre Dame. But also College GameDay on ESPN. “It’s not something that happens here all the time,” coach Mike Elko said. Never try. Will Lee Corso grab the pitchforks and pick the Blue Devils to win? The last time the Duke beat the Irish was in Durham in 1961, the first months of the Kennedy administration.
He is No. 24 Kansas Are you serious about being a Big 12 contender? Texas awaits in Austin on Saturday. The Jayhawks used to be a good, quiet homecoming opponent, but not anymore. Very dangerous. Like two years ago when they stormed Austin and won 57-56 in overtime. “Old news,” coach Lance Leipold said of the win this week, but the win was largely the kickoff to the incredible Kansas renaissance he has sparked. The Jayhawks are 11-9 since that day. In the previous 20 games, they were 1-19. “I am very proud of our team, our staff and the players for the way we have positioned ourselves to deserve respect and recognition,” Leipold said.

Just No. 15 North Carolina You can relax this week, facing Open Date Byes, after going through South Carolina, Appalachian State, Minnesota and Pittsburgh. “Probably the toughest four games I’ve ever played to start a season,” coach Mack Brown described it. And on the right track on the schedule are Syracuse and Miami, who are a combined 8-0.
