Duke Seek To Improve Strong Start

MIAMI (AP) -- One of the few parallels between Duke and Florida International is that both schools have basketball teams coached by Hall of Famers, Mike Krzyzewski for the Blue Devils and Isiah Thomas for the Panthers.

The football teams aren't quite at that level.

But on Saturday night, one of them may take a big step forward.

Duke visits FIU this weekend, with the Blue Devils trying for just their second three-game winning streak since 1994. And for FIU, it's a chance to beat an opponent from the Atlantic Coast Conference for the first time. The Panthers are 0-5 against the ACC, losing those games by an average of nearly 17 points.
