Update: Anthony Boone was announced at Duke's starting QB. Renfree warmed up with starting center Brian Moore and should be available if necessary.
DURHAM—It's a beautiful day for football here in Durham. About an hour and a half before game time the stadium is still empty, but in due time we shall see what kind of crowd turns up for this meaningful ACC Coastal Division game.
As always, check out the game preview for the bulk of my pregame thoughts. The depth charts up here in the press box don't offer much in terms of injury updates: QB Sean Renfree is still listed as the starter for Duke (Cutcliffe called him a game-time decision), as is CB Lee Butler. CJ France is starter at linebacker over David Helton, who also left last week's game with an injury.
For Virginia, the quarterback starter reads, "Michael Rocco or Phillip Sims." London said earlier this week that he's going with Sims, the Alabama transfer.
