Just one day after its Saturday game was canceled, Duke has a new opponent.

Duke will host Loyola Maryland at Cameron Indoor Stadium at 4 p.m. Saturday, the program announced in a release Thursday morning. The scheduling change comes one day after Cleveland State canceled its next two games, including Saturday’s originally-scheduled matchup in Durham. The Vikings have “temporarily paused all team activity” due to rising COVID-19 concerns within their program.

Duke had announced Wednesday its intent to find a new opponent for Saturday’s matchup, the team’s last scheduled nonconference game of the regular season.

Tickets and parking passes initially meant for the Cleveland State matchup will be accepted and the game will be televised on ACC Network, per the release.

Ahead of Saturday’s contest, the Blue Devils meet Appalachian State Thursday at 7 p.m at home.
