BOSTON (AP) -- The non-conference schedule has been rough for Boston College and Duke. When they meet in their Atlantic Coast Conference opener on Saturday, each will be looking to improve on an 0-2 start.
"We're all hungry searching for that first win, and we know they will be also," Duke running back Jay Hollingsworth said. "It's just going in who wants it more. I believe we do.
"It's also not just a want-to. You have to work for it. They're not just going to hand it to us. So we're going in hungry, starving for our first win."
Duke lost at home to both Richmond of the Football Championship Subdivision and No. 6 Stanford. BC fell at home to Northwestern and then on the road, 30-3 to Central Florida, and now has to recover to make it to a bowl game for the 13th consecutive year.
