DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke will get plenty of time at home in 2010.
The Atlantic Coast Conference composite schedule released Thursday shows the Blue Devils will have seven home games, among them a visit from national champion Alabama on Sept. 18. The home slate closes with rival North Carolina, which ended last season with North Carolina State.
Duke opens against Elon on Sept. 4 then travels to Wake Forest to open league play the following weekend.
Three of Duke's last four games are at home, with visits from Virginia and Boston College to start November.
Seven opponents reached bowl games last season.
