In its last outing, Duke proved that its early season successes are portable, as the Blue Devils traveled up to East Hartford, Conn., for their first road test of the season, promptly decimating UConn 41-7 to improve to 4-0 on the season. Head coach Mike Elko’s squad continues to garner national media attention, as Duke slots in at No. 17 in this week’s AP poll.
