Located in Durham, North Caro-
lina, Duke carries an 0-1 record into
i s the contest, after being upset by East
to Carolina, 17-16 last weekend. How-
:ed ever, the Blue Devils almost rallied
an to victory behind quarterback Mike
the Dunn, who fell inches short on a two-
ca- point conversion in the waning
tic moments of the ball game.
to Last season, Duke, during its 5-5-1
the slate, was at times brilliant and at
other times inept. The Blue Devils
upset perennial power Tennessee be-
. fore 83,000 partisan Tennessee fans in
" Knoxville. Duke also thrashed in
convincing fashion both Georgia
Tech and North Carolina State.
The Blue Devils gave Pittsburgh
its biggest scare of the year in a 44-31
loss, while also succumbing in the
final minute to Peach ;Bowl partici-
pant North Carolina, 39-38. But Duke
rooters cannot forget its embarrass-
ing rout by conference foe Wake
Forest, 38-17, a team Michigan
. The dangerous Blue Devil offense
is led by slick junior quarterback
Mike Dunn, who copped the ACC
. total offense title last year with an
average of 165 yards a game. The
6-foot, 4-inch sensation completed 54
per cent of his passes for almost 1,100
yards while also rushing for 757
An interesting matchup is in the
offing this weekend since Dunn was
runner-up to Michigan's Rick Leach
as freshman quarterback of the year
in 1975. Dunn's best outing came
against the number one team in the
nation, Pittsburgh, when he shredded
the Panther defense with 14 comple-
tions in 21 attempts for 197 yards. The
North Carolina native totalled 12
touchdowns last season.
Dunn is anxiously looking forward
to challenging the mighty Wolver-
ines. "I'm just happy to be able to
play against them; it's not every day
you get to play a number one team,"
he said. The Blue Devil leader called
Michigan's football team "awe-
some" but he believes that he can
move the football against the Blue
defense. "If our offensive line exe-
cutes their blocks, we could break a
few," he added.
Dunn's favorite receiver is senior
Tom Hall who gathered in 44 recep-
tions last season. Hall also received
All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors
and honorable mention All-America
honors. Tight end Glenn Sandefur is
also a good receiver.
The offensive line returns five
starters, including captain and ACC
heavyweight wrestling runner-up,
center Frank DeStefano.Mike San-
dusky, a senior guard, won the Best
Blocker Award in spring practice.
They will be leading the way for an
'inexperienced backfield which lists
Mike Barney as its starting tailback.
Barney has collected over 1,000 yards
in his career. Ned Gonet is Duke's
On the other side of the line, where
games are won and lost, the Blue
Devils return six lettermen. Middle
linebacker Carl McGee, an All-ACC
performer last year as a sophomore
with 130 tackles, anchors the Blue
Devil defense. In his first game as a
freshman, M c G e e, garnered 11
tackles and two sacks against USC.
The other two linebackers ir
:Duke's pro-type 4-3 defense are
also stellar performers.

THE BLUE OFFENSE better beware of Duke's Carl McGee.
He's a junior middle linebacker who was All-ACC and hon-
orable mention All-America last year. McGee amassed 13W
tackles for the Blue Devils in 1976.
