DURHAM — Alabama will make an appearance at Wallace Wade Stadium in 2010 to play the Duke Blue Devils, Duke Athletics Director Kevin White confirmed on Wednesday.
“It’s pretty straight forward,” White said. “The 2010 Duke-Alabama game is our home game. We simply decided to play it at Wallace Wade.”
Duke's previous plan was to stage its home game of the home-and-home series with the Crimson Tide at another site. Duke's athletics department, under former AD Joe Alleva, had considered other cities, most seriously Atlanta, while looking for a larger venue.
