The Cavalier Football Team will welcome the Duke Blue Devils to Scott Stadium on Saturday for its home opener, and will look to have continued success against them. Virginia has won the last seven contests against Duke, including last season's 37-0 shutout in Durham.

The Wahoos have also won five of six home openers under head coach Al Groh, and will look to to make it six of seven in their first ACC match up of 2007. Jameel Sewell will get the nod at quarterback.

Duke enters in the midst of a 21 game losing streak, a streak that Virginia began back in September of 2005 with a 38-7 win. The Blue Devils have not won a conference game since November 13, 2004, when they beat Clemson, 16-13, and have lost 17 ACC games in a row.

Kickoff for Saturday's match up is set for noon at Scott Stadium.
