DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — It's another regular-season finale at Duke, which means this is the last game for a team that isn't going to a bowl.
Except that this time, it's Miami that will be home for the holidays.
The lousy-no-more Blue Devils are headed to the postseason.
Duke plays host to the Hurricanes on Saturday in a game that would have had huge implications in the ACC Coastal Division race. That was before the Blue Devils lost last week and Miami withdrew from bowl consideration.
So now, the only things on the line are the pursuit of a seventh win and a .500 finish in league play for Duke (6-5, 3-4). For the Hurricanes (6-5, 4-3), there's only pride and the chance to finish November with three wins in four games.
