Clear your schedules, everyone. Duke and Illinois are getting together for a home-and-home.
The Illini will head to Wallace Wade Stadium first on Sept. 6, 2025, and the Blue Devils will return the favor on Sept. 12, 2026.

The schools have met twice previously. Duke won the initial meeting in a 15-13 decision in 1958, and Illinois struck back with a 28-14 win in 1965.
Now it’s time to take bets on which coach is more likely to be at his current post a decade from now – David Cutcliffe or Tim Beckman.
