While Duke has a number of injuries to watch this week, the biggest change on the Blue Devils’ depth chart isn’t injury related. Jay Hollingsworth will start at running back this week against Wake Forest, Duke coach David Cutcliffe announced Tuesday.
“I was really disappointed in our run game, but mostly with our running backs,” Cutcliffe said. “Our offensive line gave us some opportunities that didn’t occur just because we didn’t run the football well. … (Hollingsworth) ran the ball than everyone else did. He deserves it.”
Hollingsworth had 21 yards on four carries Saturday. Desmond Scott led Duke with 66 yards on 10 carries and Juwan Thompson had one yard on six carries.
